Dale Never Fails To Impress

Dale Halford continues to show why he's now becoming one of the best and most dangerous players around with sixteen tons during an 8-3 Monday Premier League defeat for Bluebird B against Octagon A.

Ten of those aforementioned efforts were ploughed in during a five leg singles win whilst most of the running from the victors was produced by Lee Hellings.

Hellings (27.83) checked two legs in 17 darts during a 3-0 singles win that saw the only maximum of the match from Hellings that rounded off a twelve ton haul.

Halford's teammate Jamie Roberts added the third 17 darter of the match in a 3-2 defeat; a feat that was only bettered by Alfie Ford's leg in 16 in a 3-1 win.

Fifteen tons from John Mann led runaway title favourites Tradesmans to an 11-0 win over Victory C to make it nineteen successes from nineteen starts.

Mann's total was rounded off by outstanding finishes of 128 and 160, which dropped teammate Andy Bates' 120 into third for the evening.

Bates added nine more tons to that to give him ten tons to his name; a total that was accented by the only maximum of the match.

Mann (28.90) also claimed the shortest leg of 501 on the night; his 14 darter accompanied by one of four 18 dart legs in the match.

Fred Goldsmith (25.47) put two of those onto the scoreboard in a 3-0 win whilst teammate Jaden Whitting produced a single leg in six completed visits in a 3-1 triumph.

Bates also put his name amongst those shooting low numbers of darts with legs of 15 and 17 darts contributing to his 3-0 win.

Danny Bull's fourteen tons got Indian Inn off and running to a 9-2 success over Octagon B who had Steve Daley firing a 100 checkout in the defeat.

A Jack McMinn master class of heavy scoring brought about a personal ton tally of thirteen, and a 7-4 win for Bluebird A against Cherry Tree A.

The best showing from the defeated visitors came in the form of a twelve three figure scores from Mike Whatley.

Ten tons from Dave Lee put a fire under his Cherry Tree B team, which helped them towards a 7-4 triumph over a talented Bluebird C team.

A crucial 103 checkout from Tony Teal in a 3-2 win did enable Teal to get the better of Lee in the individual phase; that effort one of ten tons overall for Teal personally.

Teal's checkout was only bettered by Glenn Halford's 111 three dart combination out shot in a 3-0 singles win that saw a leg taken in 18 darts.

Lee's teammates George Beckett and Marc Webber were the only two players to hear 180 called after throwing, which contributed to the match result being swung in their favour.

Scott and Andrew Cook faced off in opposition teams as Scott's Victory B bettered Andrew's King Billy by an 8-3 score line.

The brothers scored all of the maximums in the match with the three being shared in favour of Scott Cook by a two to one split.

Scott Cook added a 14 darter in his 3-0 individual success whilst Andrew Cook equalled that showing and added a leg in 17 during a 3-2 triumph.

Paul Goundry won his singles 3-1 thanks in part to a 15 dart leg whilst a 110 from teammate Paul Gavican was the best finish from all twelve players on display.

Two 180s from Mark Bell couldn't arrest Colebrook's slide to a 6-5 defeat at home against Victory A for whom Quinton Taylor joined Bell in the 180 column of the sheet.

Bell also took the best leg of the match with a leg in 15 during his 3-0 success before the game was won by Luke Johnson with a 110 checkout contributing to a 3-0 win with the scores tied at 5-5.
