Worker Bs move top with fourth vic­tory Run of form brings sum­mer lead

Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser - - Drivetime Extra - Staff Re­porter

Work­men’s B claimed top spot in the BC Travel Sum­mer Darts League as they made it four wins in a row.

In a strange week for the com­pet­i­tive di­vi­sion, a cou­ple of teams now find them­selves in un­usual po­si­tions.

The first of these is Car­sons who dropped to third place.

How­ever, this is no fault of their own as they only had one match this week as they bat­tled against AJ Join­ers.

This was far from a wooden per­for­mance from the Coat­bridge team and they man­aged to take four legs and in­deed four valu­able points from the game, thanks to Ricky Grant who snatched a draw in his sin­gles game and part­nered brother John to vic­tory in the pairs.

With the likes of Derek Cun­ning­ham and Gra­ham An­der­son still see­ing off all be­fore them many teams will be happy to take four legs from the Air­drie and District League cham­pi­ons.

The other team in an un­fa­mil­iar po­si­tion is The Work­men’s A who have pulled them­selves away from the bot­tom of the ta­ble.

They are yet to win a match, but they have been very com­pet­i­tive and with one point for ev­ery game they are hold­ing their own.

They par­tic­u­larly gave a scare to the Work­men’s B as they were lead­ing 5-3 at one point thanks to good vic­to­ries from Rab McFadyean and Char­lie Mor­risey.

In the end the B squad got their act to­gether, with Cammy Reynolds on­form for with a 19-dart win.

The A team then got off to a great start against The Work­men’s C, who were still flap­ping af­ter de­feat from The Clans­man.

The class of the C team - in the shape of Ian McCaskill - did the dam­age with a brace of 18-dart wins to keep them in with a chance of reach­ing the last four and avoid­ing the Con­so­la­tion Cup.

The Work­men’s B sud­denly found form with an ex­e­cu­tion of dart­ing prow­ess against AJ Join­ers.

Scott Gibb se­cured a 16-dart win and Jackie Bryce re­turned to the fold with a 20-dart vic­tory.

The Coat­bridge lads only took one point in a match that was all one way traf­fic.

The Clans­man moved up to sec­ond in the league af­ter a good week.

They had beaten the Work­men’s C and they took con­fi­dence from that re­sult as they dished out a white­wash to Wilson Arms.

They now look cer­tain to reach the play-offs, and Wil­sons look des­tined for the Con­so­la­tion Tro­phy.
