KINGS Arms have moved up into joint second place in the Porters Function Room 501 Top 20 League after taking maximum points from their visit to Victory Inn B. Paul Palmer was on target with a brace of 180s while Warren Gordon was their leading marksman with 16 throws of a ton or more. Porters Patriots defeated Victory Inn A 8-3, but Antony Hayman and Andy Bates were pushed out of the top three in the singles table when they were defeated by Tony Tasker (3-0) and Neil White (3-1) respectively.

Neil White and Dave Pethick won their doubles in 36 darts (27.81) before there were solid performances in the singles from Lee Hellings (26.84), a winner in 17, 17 and 22 and Fred Goldsmith (26.37) in 17, 19 and 21.

The Mirrorman has run to last 32 before bowing out

NO fewer than 160 of the world’s elite darts players converged on the Butlin’s Minehead Resort over the weekend to participate in the 2020 Ladbrokes UK Open and not only was Plymouth’s Simon Stevenson in the mix, but he had a great run to the last 32 before bowing out to the two-time World champion and former UK Open champion Gary Anderson. The unique multi-board tournament carried a total prize-fund of £450,000, and Stevenson gave his PDC Order of Merit a boost to the tune of 4,000 points. By virtue of Stevenson having an Order of Merit placing of 64, he was exempt from the competition until round three but came up a very useful Dutchman in Kevin Doets. Doets had earlier defeated the 2018 U

Nail biting Victory sets Stevenson up to meet Webster

SIMON Stevenson put his supporters through a nail-biting deciding leg before winning 6-5 this afternoon and setting himself up against Darren Webster in round four of the Ladbrokes UK Open tonight and a guaranteed 2,000 order of merit points. His opponent this afternoon was Kevin Doets who earlier had defeated the 2018 UK Open semi-finalist Dave Pallett but found Plymouth's The Mirror Man a tougher nut to crack. Simon went 2-0 up in 13 and 18 and had a dart at the bull for a win in 12, only for the Dutchman to pull one back in 15. Stevenson then restored his two-leg advantage when taking the fourth leg in 14 before a pulsating fifth leg. The Mirror Man left himself 130 after just nine darts

Ruthless Patriots whitewash a very strong Octagon side

THE Patriots were absolutely ruthless in their latest Porters Function Room 501 Top 20 League fixture and defeated a very good Octagon side 11-0. Seven maximums were record, two from Octagon’s Tony Perkin while his-team mate Alfie Ford (100x15) was their top scorer. But this was all about Porters Patriots. They put 72 throws of a ton or more on the scoreboard, led by Andy Bates (100x17) and John Mann (100x14) who both hit 15-darters when winning their singles 3-2 and 3-0 respectively. Mann and Malcolm Johns secured their 601 doubles in two straight legs with their best coming in a very creditable 14 darts. Maritime Governors did all the scoring when hosting Fawn A, but couldn’t convert their

Great Scott! What a showing from Hayman and Cook

SCOTT Cook (pictured) and Antony Hayman, inspired Brewery Tap to an 8-3 victory away at the Maritime, in a fixture that produced 119 throws of a ton or more, including eight maximum scores. Hayman’s personal ton tally was an incredible 23, which included three 180s, while Cook (29.47) emerged a 3-0 winner in 19, 17 and 15. In the best encounter of the evening, Kieran Burns (100x13) took Hayman to 2-2 before being edged out. Reigning champions Steam Packet suffered a rare defeat when they lost 7-4 to visitors Bluebird C. The league table showed that the Eggbuckland side were no fewer 36 points behind their illustrious opponents before the fixture, but they upset the form book with a deserved

Cornwall victorious, but threat of relegation remains

CORNWALL won their latest British Inter County Championship fixture, but still remain dangerously close to the premier division's last relegation spot, with only four points separating them from ninth place Lincolnshire who they defeated 22-14. The ladies’ B side laid the foundations with a confident 4-2 victory with wins from Becky Curnow (16.28), Courtney Hancock (19.03), Emma Dow (16.27) and Tyrian Jesse (14.88). But the Men’s B team were equally impressive and played a big part in the Duchy’s overall success when they won their encounter 9-3. Greg Hambly (26.75) started the rout when he emerged a 4-2 winner, aided by a checkout of 125, only for Dave Mills (26.02) to follow when he hit a

The Mirror Man is in the mix for tilt at UK Open title

NO fewer than 160 players will make their way to the Butlin’s Minehead Resort this weekend to participate in the 2020 Ladbrokes UK Open and Plymouth’s Simon Stevenson will be in the mix. The unique multi-board tournament, which carries a total prize-fund of £450,000, will be covered live by ITV Sport and begins on Friday at 11am.

By virtue of Stevenson having an Order of Merit placing of 64, he is exe

Devon suffer heavy defeat away to Yorkshire in BICC

DEVON have to be very careful that they are not drawn into a relegation battle after losing 26-10 to Yorkshire in the premier division of the British Inter County Championship. Devon drop down one place to sixth but are only six points in front of Lincolnshire who hold the last relegation spot, but Lincolnshire will be Devon’s next opponents. Devon’s Ladies B side gave the county a fighting chance when they held their hosts to a 3-3 draw with wins from Sarah Brown (18.81), Michelle Andrews (17.66) and Jodie Hawton (14.31) but it all went downhill from there. Glyn Wells (23.41) emerged a 4-3 winner in the Men’s B fixture before Steve Colbourne (27.32) won 4-1, aided by a 12-darter which he fi

Kay ranked No.11 after an excellent show in Germany

KEELAN Kay competed in his first PDC tournament of the year at the weekend when he travelled to Hildesheim, Germany, to participate in the first four rounds of the PDC Unicorn Development Tour at the Halle 39 and despite being one of the youngest competitors will return home later today with his head held high. On the opening day of competition he got through to the last 16 in Tour 01 before bowing out at the quarter-finals in Tour 02, an outstanding achievement for somebody who only turned 18 in January and against a field of no fewer than 222 of the best young players in the world. He opened his account in Development Tour 01 with a 4-1 win over Barnsley’s Keaton Haddock in 18, 17, 18 and
