Before we head in to the darts round up, I hope you had a great Christmas and all have a happy and healthy New Year. This weeks blog is a double week round up, as many have you seen i have had some family illness that has taken a lot of my spare time. Thanks for all you kind comments and understanding during this period.
Also, over the next week I would hope that I will be able to confirm dates and venues for the end of season knockouts, I just need to firm up with the rest of the committee and also I dont want to clash with the ladies league presentation which is the last Friday in April.
Ok, on with the darts.
Over the last two weeks division one has opened up a little, with the four sides now within two points of each other. The previously unbeaten Bull A beat the Bull B 7-2, but lost last week to the Dewdrop Oast 5-4. This result means that the Diamond have moved to top spot, as they beat the Phoenix 8-1 and the Hairy Bull 6-3.
The Old Endeavour have had two wins, they beat the Boars Head Arrows and the DWMC, 7-2 victories against them both.
Before the Hairy Bulls defeat against the Diamond they beat the Boars Head C 8-1. The Bull B lost their two matches, one against the Bull A and a 6-3 defeat against the Phoenix Maddogs, who bounced back from that defeat against the Diamond.
The Dewdrops win against the Bull followed a 5-4 win against the Boars Head Arrows who have lost two on the bounce.
The DWMC bounced back from the defeat against the Old E with a 8-1 win against the Real Diamonds.
Over the last two weeks there has been 180s in division one from, Simon Scott of the Phoenix, Andy Smith of the Dewdrop, Al Terry of the Old Endeavour, Tony Earl of the DWMC, and Blake Manton of the Arrows.
