Gosport Mens Dart League
Mon 19th Sep 2011
36 of the leagues’ best players converged on the Carisbrooke Arms to contest the Summer League Individuals, amongst those Hampshire star Dave Harper aiming to retain the title he won last year the standard as usual was very high with some fantastic games on the night.
The early rounds threw up a few surprises as in-form former winner Lee Evans of the Carisbrooke A exited at the first round stage, as did Rich Clark and Paul Sharp both players in red hot form this season.
The last 8 consisted of Marty Ward (Green Dragon AA), Tommy Maitland (Green Dragon AA), Paul Smith (Foresters L), Steve West (Gordon Arms), Matt Lloyd (Foresters MH), Dave Harper (Carisbrooke A), Tim Phillips (Queens Head A), Martin Harper (Foresters L).
After some fantastic games the final was to be between Dave ‘Pepperami’ Harper and Tim ‘The Legend’ Phillips, with Harper retaining his title after a 4-1 win. Losing semi finalists were Martin Harper and Paul Smith.
On the night there were 180s from...
Shawn Richards (Foresters B), Dan Mulvey (Carisbrooke B), Rob Norster (Queens Head A), Ian Harty (Queens Head A), Paul Smith (Foresters L), and 2 a piece from Matt Lloyd, Tim Phillips and Dave Harper.
Paul Sharp (Windsor Win) 100, Ian Harty 101, Dave Harper 116 & 126, Paul Smith 114 & 152.
Mentions to Dave Harper for a cracking 12 dart leg, and Matt Lloyd for a 14 dart leg, also thanks to Maxine Cadwallader and Catherine Collier for making sure the competition ran smoothly.
