Mann After My Own Dart

John Mann's sixteen ton plusses accented an 8-3 win for Monday Premier League leaders Tradesmans over Indian Inn.

Mann (32.67) blew away reigning individual champion Harry Bull 3-0 with world class legs of 15, 17 and 14 darts and was one of seven players to notch at least one maximum in the contest.

Three of Mann's teammates added their name to the 180 column with Mike O'Brien and Andy Bates adding to Shaun Dring's brace.

That effort added one to Bates ten tons overall whilst Jaden Whitting also ably support his team with twelve ton plusses.

Mann's shortest leg of 14 darts was matched by O'Brien in his 3-0 win whilst Indian's four maximums were shared between Harry Bull, Danny Bull and Alec Turner who managed two.

Despite the heavy singles loss Harry Bull still managed to put eleven tons on the board, as did Turner who won against his former team 3-2 thanks to a brace of 16 dart legs.

Danny Bull also added an 18 darter in his 3-1 singles and hit the highest checkout of the match with a 74 single visit outshot to further prove this match was in no way one way traffic.

Tony Tasker top scored with fourteen three figure scores for the Victory A who fell to a 6-5 defeat in the final tie of their matchup with Octagon B.

Chris Beale and Bill Rennie played out an epic battle in which Rennie hit the only maximum before falling 3-2 to Beale who crucially won legs in 14 and 18 darts.

Tasker hit a 17 darter in his 3-2 win that took his team to the hill at 5-5 before Ryan Ring won the final tie of the match 3-1 over Tony Conn who checked 95 for the highest checkout of this contest.

Nathan Langdon was in inspired form with fourteen three figure scores but was at a loss to stop his Union Inn team succumbing to Cherry Tree B 6-5.

Langdon's 101 checkout was usurped by a 114 from George Beckett who joined teammate Phil Taylor in reaching ten ton plusses.

With the Union 5-3 up, the Pennycross side strung three on the bounce which included maximums from both Beckett and Marc Webber who won the final match of the night 3-1 to give his team comeback win.

Andrew Cook added thirteen three figure scores to the scoreboard, including a brace of maximums, in King Billy's 10-1 win over Bluebird B.

Both Cook and Kevin Lofthouse added 16 dart legs in their 3-1 and 3-0 singles wins whilst Scott Wapshott supported the team well with ten tons.

The only noteworthy contribution from the defeated Compton team was a 112 high checkout from Dale Halford.

Second placed Octagon A had both Simon Washington and Dave Pethick in decent form as the pair both notched eleven tons a piece in a 6-5 win over Victory B.

Washington joined Paul Palmer as the only players from the victors to hit 180s whilst Alfie Ford was also in good nick with ten tons overall.

Paul Gavican top scored for the defeated team with eleven tons whilst Scott Cook also reached ten three figure scores overall.

Cook had to be on top form to defeat Washington 3-1 with a 144 checkout, maximum and a brace of 17 darters doing for the Octagon player.

The leg Washington did manage in this matchup came in just 16 darts whilst Cook's teammate Paul Goundry also chalked up ten tons on the night.

Glenn Halford was his usual impeccable best with eleven ton plusses, including his team's only maximum, in his team's 8-3 win over Brewery Tap.

Sean Taylor was the other 180 hitter in the match and his 18 dart leg in a 3-1 individual win was only beaten by a 16 darter from Halford in his triumph by the same scoreline.

The only highlight from a 9-2 defeat for Cherry Tree A by Bluebird A came from Matt Nicholson's maximum in one of only two points his team won on the night.
