Seasiders’ cup game switched

LYME Regis 1st team have their last chance of silverware this season when they bid for a place in the semi-final of the Grandisson Cup this Thursday (April 10).

The Seasiders were due to entertain Sidmouth Town 2nds at the Davey Fort but the game has been switched to Sidmouth’s Manstone ground because the Lyme pitch is still unplayable after 18 weeks without a home game (kick-off 7 pm).
