And we are off, another season of darts is underway!
As you are all aware we have undertaken a little restructure which means that we now have three divisions, which means that we have less byes in the league. This may mean in the future that the league is more difficult to get in to as we only have space for one more team and we will always prioritise you, our current teams.
I personally think three divisions is the best for the league.
On with this weeks darts.
In divisions one the biggest winners on the night were the reigning champions, who are now playing from the Old Endeavour. They beat the Diamond C 8-1. The match included three big finishes, 143 from John Hughes and a 118 and 100 from Ryan Lucas.
