Coach and Horses 6 - 4 Chelmsford

When The Commercial pub was demolished last year their darts team moved 30 yards up the road to The Coach and Horses. They've re-branded the team with some great team T-Shirts, each carrying the individual's nick name on the back and a Fender Stratocaster / pub name design on the front. I was really tempted to buy one at the bar but didn't have the money for an impulse clothes purchase on the night!

Although we're a pair of well matched teams we made it really hard for ourselves by losing the opening Team game after leading throughout. Then, two Doubles losses saw us 3-0 down which was always going to be difficult to overcome. It seemed we were just wandering towards defeat without really playing any worse than our opponents.

However, three wins in the Singles games saw us back on track, and we were really close to drawing the match but for a narrow defeat in the last Singles Game of the night. Kris takes this week's Man Of The Match for his wining check-outs in his Doubles and Singles matches, but there were no true highlights to report. Perhaps Joe from their team plus Peter and  Kris from ours were the most consistent throughout the games.

Aren't they. Cheers Station Cars. We're playing a non livestock monikered pub next week, so it' back to the old dart board shots :o)
