The Castleside Inn

Sadly The Castleside Inn have dropped out of the League, and all points scored against them are void.

It's really sad to lose a team and I suspect they've suffered from the problems that most pubs and clubs have been facing for the last few years.

The Beer & Pub Association report that pub closures are approaching 30 a week (source), and it's worrying times for a game like darts which is heavily dependant upon the pubs that we play in. Special events and unique selling points can only go so far to compete for the pound in your pocket during times of economic uncertainty.

All the best to Noel and co. up there, and I hope they're able to field a team at some point in the future.
