Champion of champions

Skegness Men’s Darts

by Chris Fletcher

CONGRATULATIONS go to Martin Bell on becoming inter-league champion of champions by beating S Hammil 3-0 in the final.

This is one of the hardest titles to win as games are played against the singles champions from all the leagues, including Mablethorpe. Louth, Coningsby, Alford and Old Leake, so it is a remarkable achievement.

Martin’s Butlin Cup team mates could not match his heroics as they suffered a heavy defeat in the final against Mablethorpe.

There was better news for Tony Warry and his Mackenzie team as they beat Old Leake to retain their trophy.

In league action, and the only result from division three saw the Welcome Hillbillies defeat Ex-Service C 10-2.

J Upton hit a 160 for Welcome and J Fairley hit 140, 138 or 120 for Ex-Service.

In division two, Seaview Boys lost 9-3 to Bell Hotel and Ex-Service Sports stormed back to the top spot with an 11-1 win over Welcome Anchors.

The only game in division one saw the shock of the season as bottom placed and winless Finnigans Hotshots travelled to Burgh against Bell Oyl, with the Bell chasing second spot.

Hotshots led 4-2 after the singles, and won the first and last doubles to secure an 8-4 win.

D Andrew hit two 180s, two 140s and 125 for the Oyl.

There are a number of postponed games this week, and captains should arrange them as soon as possible.

Finals night will take place on May 6, and players should be at the Seaview for 8pm prompt.
