Another Friday night and another top performance from the Villa Swifts as they continue to progress up the table into joint third alongside Berthas and the Villa who also had convincing wins on the night.
Despite this many feel that even at this early stage the league is a two horse race as Thatch and Sperrin Flights continue to win and keep a convincing four and five point gap over the chasers.
Player of the week this week goes to Villa Swifts player Davy Glenn who was once again on sensational form with legs in 14 and 18 darts as well as hitting a 180 and a 112 checkout. Besides this there were several other top performances from Villa Swifts players, William McKendry with legs in 18 and 19 darts, Gerald Dallas with 17 and 20 dart legs and Damian Norton who hit a 180 and a 102 checkout on his way to finishing legs in 19 and 21 darts.
There were several other excellent performances on show this week, Owen McLaughlin (Thatch Bar) was on excellent form winning his game in 16 and 20 darts while Eamon Guyler (Berthas) took his in 19 and 20 darts and Chris Murray reminded us all what he’s capable of winning his game with two 21 dart legs.
