DISAPPOINTMENT for Lyme Regis Bowling Club in the National Mixed 2 rinks as they went down to Somerset's Purnells BC on both rinks. It turned out that Somerset's best was better than Dorset's best on the day. Still, this was a valiant effort by the Lyme 8 to get this far.

The championship side weren't in action for the men but Lyme 2 had a superb 10-0 win against Wellworthy.

The Ladies lost narrowly to Sherborne by 41-45 but did manage to get our points from the game with two winning rinks.

In the friendlies, Lyme lost  to a strong Yeovil team and at Swanage a first for the club, it was two rink wins each although, Swanage were the overall winners. This proved to be an enjoyable fixture at a very friendly club and will now be played on a home or away basis year on year.
