Friday Benevolent League - Ladies and Over-60s

The final of the over-60s’ competition saw Brian Laker take on tom O’Sullivan.

O’Sullivan was trying to go one better than he did two years ago when he lost in the final, but Laker was having none of it. Although he had a few loose darts, losing one on the floor, Laker won 2-0 with some old-school throwing, taking the title of over-60s champion.

The ladies’ final was very close with the players meeting in the final for the third time.

Debbie Clements went into a quick lead by taking the first leg, and the second leg was almost hers too, but Hayley Gatford got the double to take it to the last leg.

In the last leg Clements took the early lead but let Gatford back with a chance at the double. Gatford didn’t take it and missed out on another title, allowing Clements to take the winter ladies’ KO title.
