William Hill Darts League action took a side step this week as competitors took part in the divisional singles events.

Division Two teams met at the Ex Service Club, with those from Division One taking part at the New Park Club.

At the Park Club nine players lined up.

The first semi-final saw an all 501s affair as Liam Simms did battle with Pete Evans.

Pete narrowly took the important final leg to make the final.

The second semi saw Lee Yates, the Arctic Monkeys’ only representative, take on and beat Liam Clarke from the Red Lion.

In a very tense final it was Pete who just edged things to claim the title.

At the Ex Service, 15 players took to the oche, a fair turnout as there are only four teams in this league.

Some good darts were thrown, and the odd surprise was thrown up.

The biggest shock of the night was Chris Butler with his win over Darrell Webb, to move him into the semi-final, where he found Ian Chamberlain waiting.

Ian proved too strong.

The other semi saw Ray Bettison take on Steven Emsen, and Ray proved a tough nut to crack as he moved into the final, making it an all Cobras event.

It was fitting that the champions of this division should also battle out the divisional singles.

On this occasion it was to be Ian Chamberlain who came out on top, beating his teammate to the title.
