Reigning BDO World Champion Scott Mitchell was in top form as he took on Skegness darts players at the Ex Service Club.

Mitchell’s world trophy was on display, and the oche ace showed exactly why he is such hot property - as Lee Yates was the only one of the 20 opponents to take a leg from him.

In front of a full house, Mitchell also took on league legend Martin Bell in a best-of-three contest, which he won 2-0.

The BDO champ hit numerous 180s with trick shots, including standing on chairs, throwing darts backwards and throwing from more than 12 feet away.

Chris Ramsay pushed him close but, after leaving himself 170 finish, he then produced his best darts of the night to hit a 180 to bust.

Mitchell then fired in the double, and it was chance over for Chris.

The guest’s best leg came against Pete Evans​. Pete was in great form and hit two 180s in practice, but Mitchell showed no mercy, going out in 11 darts.

The final round of the William Hill Darts League’s Sid Dennis and Sons Ltd Division One will see Barkham Arms and New Park Rangers battle it out for the runners-up spot.

Barkham will play an outstanding fixture against Countryman Dads Army, knowing that a win will put them level with Rangers, with Barkham having the superior leg average.

However, after that they face champions Alcoholic Shrew Monkeys while Rangers face lowly Marine 501s.

In the Sid Dennis and Sons Ltd Division Two, Railway Cobras are the champions with WMC Amigos the runners-up.

The presentation evening will take place at the Marine Boathouse with a singles and blind draw pairs knockout on October 30, starting at 8pm.

The winter league kicks off on November 6 with the Knockout Cup preliminary round.

Matches will be Seaview Oak v Liberal Us, WMC Aces v Ex Service Cobras.

League matches will begin the following week.
