This week was the final scheduled week of league fixtures, however we do have a handful of games to play on the spare week on the 27th April due to snow week.
In division one the Diamond won 9-0 against the Boars Head C and the Bull A won 6-3 against the DWMC. These results mean if the Diamond beat the DWMC in the rearranged fixture then they win the league, if they lose the Bull A win the league. Paul Perkins hit a 180 for the Bull A, team mate Andy McNicholas checked out on 100 and John Ross of the Workies checked out on 14. Jason Davey of the Boars Head C hit two 180s in his pairs match, the first 180 was the actually the first throw of the whole match.
The Old Endeavour can finish third above the Hairy Bull if they beat the Bull B, this week they beat the Phoenix Maddogs 6-3. The Hairy Bull were 7-2 winners against the Dewdrop Oast.
The Boars Head Arrows won 9-0 against the Real Diamonds, Jim Greenway checked out on 121 and Kyle Manton checked out on 102, both for the Arrows.
In division two the league title is back in Three Cups hands, if they win their rearranged game against Tilmanstone they will win the league. This was after their 6-3 win against Phoenix Rising and the Admiral Harvey B 5-4 win against the Crown & Sceptre.
Biggest winners on the night in division two were the Diamond C, they won 9-0 against the Bull B. The Boars Head A were 6-3 winners against the Carriers, they jumped over them in the league table by the difference of just won game win over the whole season.
The Admiral Harvey A were 8-1 winners against the DSAA Hope they finish the season third, one above the Diamond.
Finally in division two the Tilmanstone Club beat the Bull Dogs 5-4.
In division three the Hairy Crown won the league, unfortunately it wasn’t decided on the night as the Nelson couldn’t field a side and they had a 9-0. The Hairy have a cracking first season of darts in the league and been a great addition.
The rise of the Northern Diamonds this season has seen them as a real solid side now, they are promoted as well, they won 8-1 against the DSAA Misfits.
Third place will be the Carriers, they do have one game still to plat though against the Crown Smiffys and they had a bye this week. The Smiffys won 6-3 against DSAA C.
The Sportsman won 5-4 against the Phoenix C and the Phoenix St Pauls had a solid 7-2 win against the Old Endeavour.
