ROB Thom insists he “can’t fault the commitment” of the Lyme Regis squad despite their lack of fixtures at present.

The wet weather hit the Seasiders’ fixture schedule once again last Saturday, with all three of their senior teams’ fixtures postponed.

But interim-manager Thom, who is in the first-team hot-seat at Davey Fort for the rest of the season, was full of praise for how his players have kept their enthusiasm.

He said: “Everyone is up for it and have been available week in week out. I can’t fault the commitment, it’s not like people have drifted away.

“We know we have the commitment there and I have already said to the senior players that I am going to need some support during midweek games, due to where I work, but we will get through that.

“We have to try and win as many games as we can, we still have an outside chance of promotion so we want to try and look for that.

“There will be games coming thick and fast but we have been in that situation before so we will see.

“I know I still have a bit of support from Robin (Townsend) and Dave Matthews so it should not be a problem.”

Should Lyme get back in action this weekend, they will visit Bampton in the Bill Slee Cup (2pm).

Bampton currently sit second in Devon & Exeter Division Four, two league’s below the Seasiders.
