The recent success story just gets better. With another 10 points from visiting Broadstone, the club just above them in the league, the ladies' team have secured their place in the top division next year. Earlier on in the season relegation was beckoning, but the team have turned things around remarkably in the last few weeks. One match to go and a single point will get them placed 5th overall.

ROBERT SUMELKA CUP
This is an annual club competition for female members and this year was as popular as ever.
The knockout contest was played in beautiful weather and the winning pair were Debbie Mayo and Pauline Knight, pictured here with Lady Captain Angela Rattenbury who presented the trophy.
So it came down to a last match of the season shoot out with local rivals Bridport. With Lyme 6 points ahead and a superior shots difference the home team only needed a win on one rink to make sure they stayed up in the Championship. Bridport played so well it looked as if they would clean up with the full 10 points. It was only due to some inspired bowling from Paul Pomeroy that secured Lyme the required points and subsequent safety.
It was tight, but well done to the team for staying up.
A win by six points over Weymouth and Melcombe Regis means that the W3 team are the winners of the Percy Baker West Division and will meet the winners of East Division (Poole Park or Swanage) in the County Finals at Bridport on September 9th or 10th. Well done to the teams - a marvellous achievement.

FINISH IN SECOND PLACE
Edna Paisley League (as of August 16th)
Lyme have moved into third place, but with so many teams below them with games in hand (Sherborne have 3) and no recent update on the Bowls Dorset website it is impossible to predict what the outcome of this league will be. Update when known.
