Boost for bowlers in fight to stay in top league

bowlsBy Paul Moffit

THE men’s championship side at Lyme Regis Bowling Club gave their chances of survival in the top league a boost, with a fine 8-2 win at home to Sherborne. But Lyme 2 men’s woes continued, with a whitewash at home to Portland Victoria.

The ladies had their game against Dorchester called off at the last moment because, after heavy rain, the conditions were deemed too dangerous.

With only one friendly played this week, it was the home team who won against Den Teignmouth.
