LYME Regis secured promotion to Devon & Exeter League Division Two last Saturday – but boss Tim Edwards is keen for his side to keep pushing right to the end of the season.

The Seasiders were promoted after beating Chagford 3-0 thanks to a brace from Julien Simier and a late Sam Jones goal.

However, although the team has achieved what it set out to at the start of the season, Edwards wants the players to finish as high in Division Three as they can.

Currently in third place, one point behind Exmouth Town Reserves, Lyme go to Tedburn St Mary this Saturday (3pm) and then take on Axmouth Town Reserves at Davey Fort next Wednesday (6.45pm).

“We didn’t know what we were going to come up against at the start of the season,” said Edwards. “But promotion was our goal and we’ve achieved that.

“The lads are still going to keep putting the effort in and hopefully we can finish second behind Henry’s Cronies.

“If we can do that it would be another great achievement.”

He added: “It’s been a long season and we’ve had more games than we did in the Perry Street League.

“There has been more travelling involved but the lads have been superb, and it would be good if we could win our two remaining games.”

Meanwhile, Lyme’s reserves ended their season in the Perry Street Premier Division with a 7-2 win at Misterton last weekend.
