Jolly Drovers 2 - 8 Chelmsford

The dartboard pictures are back!

The game started off far closer than the final score implies. We trailed throughout the opening team game and considered ourselves lucky when Kris sank the D4 to pinch the point. The Doubles games also were close affairs, as The Jollies brought it back to 2-2.

The six Singles games were a different matter though. We had started to score well and settle on their board, and although most of our finishes on the night were shots at low doubles we played a very strong game and won all 6 of the Singles points.

I'll give Kris Man Of The Match for his important finish on the opening game in which we struggled as well as a great 74 finish in a game against their strongest payer on the night (Paul). Forgive me for a quick humble mention to my 180 followed by a 135 too!

We now have two weeks away from the League. The Chelmsford will be the neutral host of the Team Cup competition semi final on 3rd April and there will be a Race Night at Chopwell Central on 10th April.

Chelmsford 9 - 1 Cricketers

Although we didn't play particularly well last night we were allowed to scoop another 9 points against The Cricketers who did not build their scoring as well as they did two weeks ago in the Away leg.

We started well and got down to the double fairly quickly in the opening Team game, with Peter finishing it on D4. By the time the Doubles games were played we had a 3-1 lead, but after their good scoring in the earlier game I thought they'd be good for a few Singles points.

Although we won all of the Singles games they were a really mixed affair and several times we had to rely on The Cricketers missing their doubles and having some bad luck. Two points from the two games for them really isn't a fair reflection on their efforts, but as always it is the finishes that count.

Peter was the Man Of The Match, getting three of our winning doubles.

Singles Cup Night

What a great night for our 4 team members who made it through to the last 16 of the Darts Singles Cup. The games were played at The Derwentside last night and many of our team went up to support them.

Peter was first up for us, but lost 2-1 to Alan W from Coach & Horses. Alan played a very steady game with good scoring. He rarely strayed from the 20 bed and was impressive all night.

We were guaranteed a success though as Roger and Alan were drawn against eachother. Roger edged it 2-1 to progress. Kris too made it into the next round with a 2-0 victory over NC.

To top off a great night for us Roger booked his place on Finals Night with 2-0 victory over Thomas, and Kris called upon his AAA game to beat Steve Dawson 2-0 and join Roger in the last 4 on Finals Night.

Cricketers 1 - 9 Chelmsford

We picked up some useful points on Tuesday night after a long string of 6-4 results which have seen us slip down to 10th in the League Table. We played a reasonable game but The Cricketers were let down by some poor finishing and would have scored two more points at the very least if they had finished off the games they were doing well in.

Our finishing was better than in previous weeks with a 76 from Peter, 55 from Alan, and a 68 from Roger being the best three.

Alan P was again the clear Man Of The Match for us, hitting three winning doubles in his Team, Doubles, and Singles games.

Chelmsford 6 - 4 Stanley Masons

Yet another 6-4 result to report from Tuesday night, and again it was in our favour. We were scoring well and getting down to the doubles first, but several times we faltered on the finishes.

We took the lead on the opening Team game and won two of the three Doubles games, but from this point the Singles games were shared and we had to just take a narrow victory on a night where better finishing would have seen far more points for us

Alan P was again the Man Of The Match for us, hitting half of the winning doubles for us.
