Last night saw the Singles Knockouts take place at the Con Club. Once again it was a brilliant turnout with over 60 players taking part (although we would still like more to enter). We would like to thank everyone who came to play, support or just watch and hopefully a good night was had by all. We would also like to thank everyone for their patience, we understand some people have to wait longer for a game than others but that's just the way the draw goes. Also special thanks to all the people who helped out last night by marking extra games, it really does help us out.
 
Onto the darts, and there were some brilliant darts played throughout the night so well done to everyone and congratulations to:- 

The 4 players who made it through to the Division 1 Singles Semi Finals are:-

A Dyer (Con Club)
K Lawerence (Con Club)
S Poulter (Carpenters Arms)
N Palfrey
(Berkeley Arms) 

 

The 4 players who made it through to the Division 2&3 Singles Semi Finals are:-

A Greenhall (Kings Stanley SC)
L Smith (White Hart)
J Drage (Prince of Wales)
G Beard
(White Hart)

Next week is Finals Night and it would be brilliant to see all teams there to celebrate what a great season it has been and lets all have a great night. For those involved next week, either with playing or just picking up trophies, there will be a rough order of play added to the website at the start of next week so keep an eye out for this. 

Finally, just a reminder that we are looking for people to help us next week by volunteering to mark a few games. If you would like to offer your services to help then please contact us.  

 
Friday 6th October 2017
 
Last night saw the Pairs Knockout take place at the Con Club. In total we had 37 pairs take part which was a brilliant turnout and we continue our record of increasing the number of entries each year. We would like to thank everyone who entered or just came along to watch and we extend a special thanks to people who on the night helped things run smoothly with everything from the draw to chalking extra games, this help really makes the night run smoother. The 4 pairs who made it through to Finals Night are:- 
 
Aaron Dyer & Josh Lewis (Con Club)
Andy Hammond & Keith Lawrence (Con Club)
Bari Jackson & Les Madgewick (Hardwicke RBL)
Matt Kerry & Tony Constant (Atkins Arrows) 
 
The semi finals will be drawn on the night. 
 
Next week is the Divisional Singles Knockout. To make it viable to do a separate knockout for each Division, we need a good amount of entries from each league. If we are unable to get enough entries from Division 2 or 3 teams to run separate knockouts, we will merge these into 1 knockout (Division 1 will stay separate). So please all get your entries in ASAP so we have a good idea of numbers and we look forward to seeing many of you next week.
 
 
 
Friday 29th September 2017
 
Last night saw the league season come to a close. Both the Con Club in Division 1 and Duke of York in Division 3 got wins which meant they both finished the season with an impressive 100% win rate. All of last nights results can be seen here and the final league tables can be seen here. We would like to thank every team who has entered the league and made it what it is, without you there would be no league to run so we look forward to welcoming you all back next season and hopefully seeing many of you at the Pairs and Singles Knockouts in the coming weeks.

The Individual Standings have also been updated and include all league games played this season. Congratulations to the winners of these who are:- 
 
Division 1- S Poulter (91.67%)

Although the league season may be finished, there is still plenty more to look forward too with the Pair next week, Divisional Singles the week after then Finals night.

Friday 22nd September 2017
 
Last night saw the final scheduled league matches take place and all the results can be seen here. The league tables have also been updated and these can be seen here. Congratulations to the following teams who take the awards on finals night :-
 
Division 1 Champions- Con Club
Division 1 Runners Up- Berkeley Arms
 
Division 2 Champions- Kings Stanley SC
Division 2 Runners Up- White Hart
 
Division 3 Champions- Duke of York
Division 3 Runners Up- Fountain Inn
 
The winners of the Individual Standings, most 180's and highest checkout will be confirmed after all league games have been completed. Please note that we will not be giving out a trophy for most 180's if the winning amount is 1 (As Per Division 3 currently).
 
Please note that we try to operate a 2 up 2 down policy in the summer league and this is what we will be aiming for next season. This is dependant on teams entering the league/ dropping out etc. so the league reserves the right to amend the league structures next season but we will always liase with teams and be as fair as possible to all.
 
There are still quite a few rearranged games to be played with some teams still having 2 to complete. We will be in contact with teams over the next few days to try and arrange these games and get them played in the free week next week.
 
We are now taking entries for the Divisional  Singles Knockout and Pairs Knockout. Click the links for full information on each. Please contact either Mark or Jay to enter.
 
 
 
Wednesday 20th September 2017 
 
There was a rearranged game played in Division 2 on Monday night in which the Ship Inn B beat the White Hart 13-8. This result means congratulations must go to Kings Stanley SC who have been crowned Division 2 Champions and achieve promotion back to Division 1. The Division 2 table has been updated accordingly in line with this result.
 
 
Friday 15th September 2017 
 
Congratulations to the Con Club who are once again Division 1 Champions and have kept up their 100% win record with another victory last night. Congratulations to Berkeley Arms who have secured the Runners Up spot. At the bottom of Division 1 it promises to be an exciting end to the season, The Lamb have secured their survival with a win last night which leaves relegation between Cross Hands A and Hardwicke RBL who play each other next week in what is effectively a shootout to see who avoids relegation (Unless 2 teams get promoted).
 
In Division 2 Kings Stanley SC are within touching distance of being crowned Division 2 Champions after another win last night. A win next week or White Hart failing to win all their remaining games will seal the deal. At the bottom Prince of Wales B must win and win well in their final game to give them any hope of avoiding the drop. 
 
In Division 3, with the Duke of York already crowned Champions, it looks like the Fountain Inn will clinch the Runners Up spot with only a highly unlikely set of circumstances able to stop this happening.
 
All the results from last night can be seen here and all the updated league tables here
 
A final request to captains of all teams, if you are cancelling or rearranging a match please let the league secretaries know as we spend a lot of time chasing results of games that didn't take place that no one informs us about. 
 
The Individual Standings have now been updated. Click here to view.
 
 
Friday 8th September 2017 
 
The Final of the Mark Drew Memorial Cup will be Con Club v The Lamb and the final of the Consolation Cup will be Ship Inn A v Atkins Arrows. Congratulations to all 4 teams who progress to finals night.

Friday 31st August 2017 
 
After last nights results, the Con Club are just 1 more win away from being crowned Division 1 champions again with an incredible leg difference of +157 so far. The battle to avoid relegation is really heating up in Division 1 with the Cross Hands, Lamb and Hardwicke all level on 6 points going in to the final few weeks and the Ship Inn A looking over their shoulder on 8 points.
 
In Division 2 Kings Stanley SC are 1 win away from earning promotion back to Division 1 and being crowned champions with only the White Hart able to catch them, but only if they win all their games and Kings Stanley slip up.
 
In Division 3 congratulations to the Duke of York who have been promoted and crowned champions after keeping up their 100% record and now look to go the season unbeaten.
 
All of last nights results can be seen here and the updated league tables are available here.

Finally a note to all teams, if you are cancelling a match or rearranging a match then please would you let the league secretaries know. A lack of communication from teams make its more difficult to keep on top of updating the website and we end up chasing results for games that were postponed etc.

1st May 2017 
 
We hope everyone has now had chance to look at the fixtures for the upcoming season and is looking forward for the kick off next week. Fixture lists and results cards will be delivered to all venues in time for the start of the new season. As we approach the new season we thought it best to just go over and reiterate a few of the league rules.
 
            - All league games are played in the format of 2 singles, pairs, 2 singles, pairs, 2 singles and then a pairs to finish off.

            - In Division 1 the format is 6 singles matches of 3 legs each and 3 pairs matches of 3 legs each (play all 3) making games the best of 27

            - In Divisions 2 & 3 as usual the format is 6 singles matches of 3 legs each and then 3 doubles matches of 1 leg each making games the best of 21  

            - The pairs matches in all leagues are 501 double start, double finish

            - Bust back is to be played in all leagues

            - The end of season Singles Knockout will once again be divisional and the Pairs Knockout will remain all leagues together

            - The awards for most 180's hit will also be divisional again but the High Checkout award will remain all leagues together


Please refer to our Rules page for a complete list of rules for the upcoming season.
 
We pride ourselves on the smooth running of the league and with making sure that we update the website at the earliest possible opportunity after games. However to do this we need every teams help and co-operation in making sure match information is sent in on time.
 
This season again we will be requiring teams to send in pictures of results cards after the game. This will mean that one picture contains all the important information needed to keep the league running smoothly. Pictures can be text to the number on the bottom of the results cards (Jay), through WhatsApp to the same number, through facebook (Jay Castle) or through email to jamiecastle91@gmail.com. It is important that the picture is or contains:-
 
            - The card must have players first initial and surname wrote on the card rather than just first names so we can identify players for the individual standings

            - Any 180's or high outs hit during the game are to be written clearly on the card 

            - Both team captain's must review all the information on the card and then sign it to confirm it is correct

            - It is the responsibility of the home team captain to send in the picture of the completed card on the night of a game
 and make sure it is clear enough to read
 
Captains will receive a message back confirming that the picture is acceptable. This means there will be no need to post any results cards, they can be saved up and returned at the end of the season.
 
If you have any questions then please get in touch and we look forward to getting the season started and making it run as smoothly as possible           
 
 
28th April 2017
 
With the season fast approaching we are pleased to confirm that all leagues are now finalised. This season we have 3 leagues of 8 teams so thank you to all who have entered and we look forward to another exciting season starting on the 11th May. The fixtures have also been completed and they can be viewed here.
 
As last year seemed to run smoothly we have decided that this season there will be no need for an AGM so all rules will be the same as last season. Please refer to our Rules page for more information. We will post more information in the coming weeks ready in time for the new season. We look forward to getting the season started and playing darts.
