Lyme teams on the road

ALL three Lyme Regis teams are on the road this weekend, giving the Davey Fort ground a much needed extra week to recover from the recent wet weather.

The Seasiders’ first team travel to Chard Town Reserves where three points are essential if they are to maintain their promotion challenge at the top of the Devon & Exeter League Division Five.

But it will be no pushover. The Somerset side are lying in seventh position but with three games in hand they could well catch and overtake Lyme, who sit precariously in the runners-up spot but with no fewer than six teams able to catch them.

With several weeks without a game, Lyme returned to winning ways last weekend with an impressive 3-1 victory over Chagford and manager Robin Townsend will be looking for a similar performance on Saturday.

Lyme Reserves have an easier task with an away game against Division Five basement boys Offwell, who are still looking for their first win after 14 games.

Lyme Rovers, lying mid-table in Division Three of the Perry Street League, travel to third placed Merriott Dynamos.

Uplyme, with just two wins from their seven Division One games, entertain league leaders Farway United in the Arthur Gage Cup.

Charmouth, in third place in Division Two, entertain Misterton Reserves in the Tommy Tabberer Cup.
