The singles started with a draw that looked very close on paper and pretty even, first up was Kevin Edwards who looked to keep his fine form going as he participates in the PDC UK Open this weekend. He beat Andrew Currivan in a last leg decider with both players averaging over 27. Andrew won the first leg in 18 darts, Kevin responded with an excellent 11 dart leg including a 180. then nicked the third in 23 darts before Andrew levelled with a 16 dart leg, and in the final leg Kevin found a 17 dart leg to win the set. Next up Tony Osborne beat Nic Groves 3-1 with winning legs of 20, 17 & 24 darts to make it 4-2 on the night to Brightlingsea.

George Lord stepped up next for the first time this season, but he was unable to prevent defeat as he went down 3-1 to Suffolk based Jason Evans. Jason won in 22, 22 & 21 darts. The scoreline was brought to within one as Joe Twinn lost out to former Suffolk County player Keith Wright who took his chances to win 3-1 with legs of 22, 29 & 18. At 5-4 things were tight going into the last 3 sets, up next, Alan Collins put in a professional performance as he beat former PDC Tour Card holder Curtis Hammond 3-1, Alan’s winning legs were 20, 18 & 18, if it wasn’t for a few missed doubles it could have been a high average, nonetheless he come out with a 24.12 average. The two set lead was reduced to one again in the penultimate set, Sam Lepley was unable to prevent defeat as Keith Farthing put in a man of the match performance with legs of 19. 18 & 17 to average 27.64. So all down to the last, and it was left to Bryan Margerison to get Brightlingsea over the line and claim the 7-5 victory, as he see of the challenge of Wayne Bloomfield. Bryan won the first leg in 16 darts with Wayne, The Essex County A man, responding with a 16 dart leg, Bryan then brought home the victory in 22 & 23 darts to win 3-1.

A good double for Brightlingsea over their Tendring counterparts, next week Brightlingsea travel to second placed Springfield which will no doubt be a good match, with both side looking to close the gap on leaders Southend.  Still all to play for with 5 matches to go.

The score line became 6-3 as Brightlingsea’s Alan Collins lost out to Rhys Hayden in another last leg decider, A bit of a scrappy battle saw Rhys win the first leg in 26 darts before Alan levelled in 24 darts, Rhys then found his range and won the 3rd in 16 darts, Alan levelled the 4th in 19 darts, Alan then missed a dart at Tops to let Rhys in to win the set in 19 darts. The last 3 sets went the way of the home team. In set 6 we got a masterclass from the former PDC world number One as he destroyed Tim Franklin in just 43 darts as he went 17, 13, 13 darts to average a very impressive 34.95, the highest average in the league so far! In the 7th set Joe Twinn beat Sam Hayden 3-1 with legs of 28, 22 & 20 darts and finally Gavin Payne beat Stuart Thorogood 3-0 to finish the scoring in 25, 20 & 21 darts.
