Its Christmmaaaaaaassssssssss!!!

What a year of darts we have had, action packed and now with the new longer league format virtually no weeks without any darts.  The support from you all, week in week out is really appreciated.  Not just by the committee, but the landlords/landladies of the league for making the choice to take part on a weekly basis, and actually I think that you all appreciate each other in making the league what it is.  Yes we all go out to win, but the encouragement I see teams give each other week in week out is superb.

All of this are part of the reasons why I, and I am sure the rest of the committee do what we do.  Yes the eye role moments happen when I think why do we bother, but they far outweighed by moments of joy, so in 2019 I am looking forward to more and more of those moments of joy.

On with the darts, and a reminder that 21st December is the Nigel Pascall Cup, all are welcome.


In division three the Nelson lost for the first time, they were beaten by the Eagle 5-4, and with the Phoenix C winning for the seventh game on the trot they are now two points top of the table and unbeaten.  They beat the Misfits 8-1 this week and they join the Diamond in division one as the only unbeaten side.

The Sportsman beat the Northern Diamonds 6-3, and the Phoenix Rising won by the same margin against the DSAA C.  The recent bad form of the Old Endeavour carried on, they lost 6-3 against the Eagle A, that’s four defeats on the trot.
