Local derby for Seasiders after two weeks with a game

HAVING gone two weeks without any football due to the heavy rain, Lyme Regis 1st are hoping to return to Devon & Exeter Premier action tomorrow (Saturday) when they travel across the Devon border to meet Seaton Town.

Lyme should have played Shaftesbury Town Reserves last Saturday in the Dorset Senior Trophy but the game was called off because the pitch was unplayable. The fixture has been rescheduled for Saturday, November 30th.

Lyme still retain their second place in the Devon & Exeter Premier division with 18 points from nine games and will start tomorrow’s game as favourites with Seaton down in 12th place in the table with just two victories to their name.

Lyme Reserves’ Dorset Intermediate Cup against Portland Town did go ahead but despite having two good scoring chances early on, the Seasiders’ second string were beaten 2-0. Tomorrow, they are back on Devon & Exeter Division Three duty with a home fixture against Dunkeswell who are three places below them in the table (kick-off 2.15 pm).

Lyme Rovers will be looking to cement their second position in Perry Street Division Two with an away trip to struggling Shepton Beauchamp who have yet to win this season.

In Perry Street Division One, Uplyme are at home to Forton Rangers where three points are well within their capability and Charmouth travel to neighbours third placed Hawkchurch.
