Doubles Cup Night

I'm afraid The Chelmsford drew a blank on Doubles Cup night on Tuesday, with none of our players going through to the second round.

Roger and I were the only ones playing at The Chelmsford, with our team mates playing at the other venues. We had a good night despite losing 2-1 in our first game. The best darts of the night came from the pairing of Davey Gill and Nev who were the only ones who had to play two rounds to get through, due to the nine teams competing. Four pairings progressed through to the next round later in the year.

I know the league are always fine tuning these events to ensure there are no late finishes, and I thought it worked well on this year, with the final games completing in good time.

Chelmsford 5 - 5 Moorcock "A" Team

Picture by Bradley (thanks Kris)

Last night's return leg against The Moorcock "A" Team was another low scoring game, but this time they were far more determined with some very pleasing performances within their team, and a draw was the least they deserved.

Things started off well for us with a win in the opening Team game, but from that point onwards we always seemed to be chasing, and we were 2-4 down at one point.

This was our first Home game in he refurbished Bar area, and the management have done a great job with it. In particular there's an open fire in the corner now and the treated floor boards look impressive.

We had a close tie again for Man Of The Match this week, with Alan and Chris hitting all but one of our winning doubles between them, but Alan shades it with his D20 and D8 finishes, and is now at the head of the leaderboard.

Moorcock "A" Team 3 - 7 Chelmsford

A 90 finish on the practice board

We didn't have a darts game last Tuesday due to the Dominoes Doubles Cup, where sadly none of us made it through to the next round. We've got some decent dominoes players in the team so it was a real disappointment to come away with nothing other than the usual good night up at the Jolly Drovers.

Last night it was back to the darts league, and despite a slow start in a game which rarely hit any heights we were able to win the game by taking the final four Singles points of the night.

They've got an authentic old fashioned country pub up there with a decent Blade III board, but none of us found it a comfortable throw for some reason. We'd better get used to it because we play their "B" team back there again soon.

There was some real competition for the Man Of The Match award this week, as three of our players sunk two winning doubles each (Peter, Alan, and Micheal). The award goes to Alan however, with his solid 76 finish in his Singles game (S20, S16, D20). He also finished the awful X1 I left him in the team game, which was a huge relief to me.
