There were no Games in the Sid Dennis and Sons Ltd Division One. However, the 15 dart challenge made its introduction to the league and 22 players entered.

Pick of the prelims was Carl Parnham against Kristien Thein, as predicted it was a close game going the distance with Carl gaining the win 3-2.

Darrell Webb met Steve Emsen in the first round and, in another game to go all the way, Darrell took the win.

Dave Manson played Geoff Poulter and it was again a close affair with Dave edging it three two, pick of the quarter finals saw team mates George Millington and Ken Wilson clash, and a very close game followed, with George just holding out for a three two victory.

Carl Abbiss and Carl Parnham won their respective semi finals to nil, to set up an intriguing final which ebbed and flowed with some heavy scoring, however it was Carl who had the edge with a three one win.

Sid Dennis and Sons Ltd Division Two

With all promotion issues settled last week, the minor placings were up for grabs as WMC Aces, laying in fourth place, took on runners-up Finegans.

After a poor start to the season, the Aces have come good in the second half, and must be left wondering what might have been if their early form had matched their latter form, they shared the singles three all, and then it was the aces who took the game by the scruff of the neck, winning all the pairs to run out nine three winners and take third place, Aces Mick Jones was the high scorer in this one hitting a couple of 140s.

Cricket club had a 9-3 win over Ex Service C, champions Liberal Lads ended their campaign with a trip to Welcome Anchors and with 16 scores of more than 120 it was a cracker of a game, with the Liberal running out nine three winners, I Parnaby hit 120, 125, 140 for the lads, while Anchors S Dore 120, 123, A Hardy120, 2 x140, W Burles 125, 140 and R Subden hit the bulk of their scores.

Another high-scoring game took place at the Vine as they entertained Royal Oak, and it was the away team that had the edge in singles taking a 4-2 lead they then took the first pairs to lead 6-2, but the Vine fought back well taking the final two pairs, Vine had A Jobes 120, 140, and M Spence 120, 125, and Royal Oak had A Pringle 3 X 140, S Petit 121, 125, and T Parkin 2 x 140 on the scoresheet. Liberal Us ended their season with a nine three triumph over Welcome Hillbillies

All league fixtures are now complete, however, still to play are the mixed doubles, trebles, mens doubles, singles, and k/o cup final, all dates in fixtures
