started with the divisional knockout cup finals.
In league two The Dun Cow overcame The Bowls Club by 4 games to 0. In
the doubles there were wins for Luke Spense (101) and Richie Elliott
(140) followed by Nev Thornicroft and Clive Hart (100x3). Luke Spense
(136,100) followed by Keith Chapman took the first two singles games
but with there being no way back for the Bowls Club the game was
conceded making The Dun Cow League 2 KO Cup Champions.
League 1 saw The Workers host St James A. The Workers took the first
doubles game through Matt Edgar (140,125,100x2) and â€˜Wadeyâ€™
(140,131,125,100) only for Mick Doney (100) and â€˜Hempsâ€™ (131,100x3)
to level the match. The Workers then took the first three singles
games through â€˜Wadeyâ€™ (121), Andy Winters (121,100x2) and finally Ray
Jones (140,123,100) making The Workers league 1 KO Cup Champions.
During the evening a competition was held by Paul Marsh
called â€˜Marshyâ€™s Halve itâ€™ with the proceeds going half to the winner
and the other half to Paulâ€™s chosen charity, winner of this
competition was â€˜Juiceâ€™.
The presentation of the trophies followed with an entertaining
performance by Mick Doney on the mike announcing the winners and
runners up for all competitions. A mention must go to the fabulous
performance of our musical entertainment of the evening, brother and
sister act, Side by Side who had us all up and reminiscing the songs
of our youth!!!! Special thanks from the Daventry darts league go to
Ray Jones and Dave Hewitt for all arrangements for the evening
including the selection of superb trophies; these just get better
each year and the excellent buffet.

Hewitt on the sad news of the death of his father, unfortunately this
meant that Dave was unable to attend the evening and see the results
