Pros Tony O’Shea and Darryl Fitton, along with MC John Fowler, visited Skegness for the Ladbrokes Darts League this week where they took on a total of 22 players.

Tony was first up, taking on six players and losing only one game, to Mark Forman. But he bounced back from that defeat against John Jeffries by checking out 119, with bull, 19 bull.

Then Darryl took to the stage again playing six players, amongst them was Jon Molson, Daniel Starkey, and he decided to hit his first maximum against Chris Simpson.

During the interval a shirt signed by half a dozen top stars was auctioned off with the proceeds going to Great Ormond street Hospital – £53 was raised.

Darryl was first on in the second half taking on a final five players, beaten by Carl Abbiss. And then it was the turn of Tony to play his final five and end the night by beating Shaun Drury and Pete Evans.

Ladbrokes donated free bets for all the players, and organised the raffle again. The Liberal Club gave financial help to put this evening together.

League spokesman Chris Fletcher said: “It was great to see so many people crammed into the club, as folks travelled from Spalding and Horncastle to be a part of the night.”

The Andy Smith Pie Bus will be visiting four pubs in one afternoon on March 1. The tour will start at the Seaview, then to Wainfleet Social with hot rolls, then Duke of Wellington, in Midville, and ending up at the Liberal Club for a pie and pea supper.

Andy will be doing an exhibition at each venue, and participants could get to travel on the bus with the pro.

Tickets £10. To book call Fletch on 07789 405588.
