I hope you have all had a great summer, the darts especially been hot as has the weather.
Top of the shop in division one is the Hairy Bull, they are still unbeaten this season, a superb effort in an incredibly tough league. Second place, but four points behind is the Diamond, they have suffered defeats against only the Hairy Bull and the Old Endeavour.
Near the bottom of the table it is incredibly close, four sides are on six points, Whitfield Club, Admiral Cups, Three Cups and the Real Diamonds. With only three games left it is definitely going to be a nervous end to the campaign.
In division two the DWMC Maddogs and the Hairy Crown are promoted, we just don’t know which side will win the league. At the bottom of division two the Crown A are relegated, back to back relegation’s, I thought only Sunderland did that.
The second relegation spot is between the DSAA A and the phoenix C, the Anglers are in the driving seat though as they are four points clear of the Phoenix.
Division three, the Crown B are promoted back to division two, but the second promotion spot is between four sides. The Old Endeavour, Phoenix Rising, Sportsman and the DSAA Hope are all on 22 points. We will all be watching with interest over the coming weeks to see will be joining the Crown in division two.
180s leaders are Ricky Edwards of the Admiral Cups and Wayne Venes with 7 each in division one, Dave Buddle of the Boars Head A and Alan Harper of Tilmanstone both on 2 in division two and Shaun Mayes of the Sportsman is 3 in division three.
The big checkouts have also been flying in, Jim Greenway of the Crown Arrows 158 is the biggest in division one, Mick Law of division two has a 136 and the biggest overall is Roy Marsh of the Crown B of division three, he hit a 160.
Some pro night updates for you,
As many of you are aware there has been a major change in the BDO officials, which has seen the resignation of Richard Ashdown who is our normal MC. This has meant that Richard is now working more and more with the EDO, WDO and the PDC which is great news for us is his contact of players is extneding even further, especially in the PDC. However, these new roles means he is unable to MC our pro night this year, but he has found us a replacement, Paul Starr a regular on the MC circuit with Richard. Richard however is actually disappointed that his long run has ended in Dover, but had vowed to come back next year with a top pro, bigger and better.
There will be no other changes, we still have the incredible Stephen Bunting and our usual Stage Set with Jazon Hawthorn.
