Alcoholic Shrew Monkeys travelled to Liberal Club and came away with a massive 9-1 win in the Sid Dennis and Sons Ltd Division One of the William Hill Darts League.

High scores in this game came from Julian Smith​ (3x100), 125) and Gordon McQuillan (3x100, 135, 140) for Liberal.

Monkeys’ Martin Bell​ (3x100, 121, 140, 2x180), David Tuplin​ (2x100, 135, 3x140), Lee Yates (3x100, 125, 140) and Colin Lees​ (6x100, 180) threw well.

Their nearest rivals met at the Barkham, with Barkham Arms taking on New Park Rangers.

It was the Rangers who proved too strong, gaining a 6-4 win, moving four points clear of the Barkham.

Countryman Dads Army took on Boathouse 501s in a basement battle, and the away side just edged this 6-4 to hoist themselves off the bottom, leaving the countryman propping the table up.

In the Sid Dennis and Sons Ltd Division Two, Boathouse Bouys caused a bit of an upset as they beat highflying Seaview Raiders 6-4 - a result that all but puts paid to the promotion chances of the Seaview.

David Saunders (2x100, 132, 135, 140), Mark Saunders​ (100, 133) and Jack Saunders (4x100) were on target for the home side, obviously liking the new set up at the Marine.

Finnegans found leaders Railway Cobras too strong as Cobras won 7-3, and are now four points clear at the top.

Second-placed WMC Amigos had a comfortable 8-2 win over Three Tuns to maintain second spot, and are now four points in front of Seaview.

Mick Jones (2x100, 123, 140), Spencer Davis​ (2x100, 132) and David Reding ​(3x100, 117) were the high scorers for Amigos.

The Winter League AGM saw two teams drop out, but a new one set to join. A total of 16 teams have registered an interest, while Royal Oak were not represented. Charnwood Hotel are the new team.
