William Hill Skegness Dart League

Sid Dennis and Sons Division One

A cracking game took place at Red Lion Burgh as they took on basement team New Park Rangers, with no less than eight legs in 20 darts and under.

Brad Martin kicked things off for Rangers with 4 x 100, 120, 134, 135, and legs of 20 and 17 darts in his win over Chris Simpson 4 x 100, 125, and it was ironic that they had to wait for Brad’s last game where he beat Scott Smith, hitting 5 x 100, 125, 140, 103 finish and legs of 20 and 15 darts, for their only other point of the game. Scott replied with 5 x 100, 122 and an 18 darter, and also hit scores of 2 x 125, 3 x 140 in his other game against Ray McIvor.

Red Lion had Chris Simpson 101, 2 x 125, and an 18 darter, Anthony Hulley 3 x 100, 140, 120 finish and a 20 darter, he also hit a 19 dart doubles leg with partner Scott Smith.

Arctic Shrew Monkeys fielded a weakened side, and saw their faint title aspirations disappear as they went dowb 6-4 to Liberal Lads. Liberal had Gordon McQuillan 7 x 100, 125, 2 x 140, Stuart Giles 100, 2 x 140, Mark Carter 2 x 100, 121, 140, and captain Eric Hammond 4 x 100, 2 x 121, 123, 135, 137, 113 finish and a 17 dart leg in his win over Martin Bell. Eric’s last leg win was the match winner. Monkeys had Shaun Drury 9 x 100, 121, 2 x 140, and Martin Bell 4 x 100, 137, 4 x 140.
