Two changes to the rules voted at the AGM will be posted nearer the start of the season. Eligibility to play in competitions and throwing format were the two subjects.
58 players took part in last night’s pairs at The Foresters and there were many supporters.
As expected a there was high standard of darts throughout the competition with many strong pairs teams taking part. There were numerous 180’s and high shot outs, however a 160 and a 170 by N Milner were the highlights.
Losing semi finalist were P Smith / K Wilkins and S Jannaway / L Evans who lost 4-3 and 4-1 to P Winter / T Moore and P Sharp / K Woodward respectively.
In the final Shippy and Kev took the first leg against the darts before Paul and Tony stormed back to a 3-1 lead. Shippy and Kev fought back and won the next two legs to force the match to a one leg decider.
Despite the quality of the players, nerves were evident in the deciding leg with both teams having darts to win. But having missed darts at doubles in the previous leg for the match and in total having missed 12 darts for the match in both legs, Paul and Tony finally came through to seal the match and the pair’s trophy.
