LYME Regis continued their upsurge in form with a comfortable 4-0 win at Dawlish United in the Devon & Exeter League Premier Division.

Lyme created numerous chances but lacked a clinical edge, leaving boss Julien Simier concerned at half-time despite opening up a 1-0 lead.

The Seasiders’ opening goal came via Brad Rowe but the forward and Tom Bastin both hit the woodwork, while Harvey Brimicombe also missed a good opportunity.

Simier’s fears were realised in the second half when Lyme conceded a soft-looking penalty.

However, experienced goalkeeper Chris Higgs produced a wonderful save to kick-start Lyme into life.

Mark Bailey got his second goal in two games, before young sub Tom Kilcoyne played a pivotal role in the last two goals as Rowe and Bastin got on the scoresheet.

Simier told the Bridport News: “I can’t complain at all. We’re coming back slowly.

“We’ve had issues with players’ availability and injuries but we’re slowly getting the team back.

“We needed time for those players to come back. It’s good for the morale and everyone’s enjoying it.

“It’s easier for me as well, there’s less of a headache with selection.

“More than the result, it’s our resilience.”

Simier also confirmed defender Cam Vere has joined Wincanton Town, while talented midfielder Fred Parsons has stepped across to Bridport Reserves.

Simier said of Vere: “Cam left and fair play to him, he’s been great for us.

“He had the call from Wincanton, had a trial and he enjoyed it. He’s going to play there for the rest of the season. We’re going to miss him.”

Lyme Regis host Beer Albion at Davey Fort on Saturday (3pm).

Rob Fellingham returns and Joe Bond is nearing a return.

Lyme: Higgs, Pollard-Jones, Turner, K Wellman (J Sargent 65), R Sargent, Bailey, Garrett, Bastin, Brimicombe, Rowe, Daines (Kilcoyne 60).
