Stanley Masons "B" 3 – 7 Chelmsford

Pictured : Roger warming up

You’ve seen the blood, sweat, and tears on this blog, but at last I have a great result and a satisfying personal performance to report upon. I’m even taking the unusual step of naming myself as the Man Of The Match for hitting the highest score of the night (140), and finishishing sweetly on 76 (S20, S16, D20) and 91 in two darts (the highest finish of the game) to blag two of the valuable points in my Doubles and Singles matches respectively.


We started poorly, losing in the opening 1001 Team Game, and needing approximately 250 points as the Masons sunk their winning double. They were on form, and we knew we needed to do better.

We then took the next 4 points to set up a decent 1-4 lead, but Alan then suffered some appalling luck and saw 137 points "on the floor" due to three bounce-outs on the wire and he lost his Singles game.

Roger was next up and lost his Singles game too, but we then took the next three consecutive points to win 3-7 on the evening, and we’re now looking forward to our big test against league leaders Steel Club next week. Lambs to the slaughter, or heroes in the making? We’ll see . . .

Tommo, something is wrong with your blog... As you can see to the left I had commented a few days ago. I was surprised to see that there were '0 comments' on this post today. When you drill down, however you can see that it is indeed there. Strange. In the event only I can see that comment (browser cache??) the gist of it was congrats and well done!!

Jay, There's still enough points left in the season for you guys to finish 2nd or 3rd. Lets' see if we can't do you a favour by holding Steel Club. It won't be for want of trying.
