Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser - - Motor Guide - Mark Pirie

The Ea­gle se­cured a huge vic­tory over The Clans­man as they con­tin­ued to build mo­men­tum for the sea­son ahead.

A close game was ex­pected be­tween the sides, and The Clans­man started well with Peter Lynch in fine form.

He recorded a brace of 21- dart wins, and Alex McPheat was also in the mood with a 20-dart win.

In the end it was the good form of the home side that se­cured the points.

Ped Cum­mings hit a 180 in a 17dart win and Ally Kennedy got in amongst the ac­tion with a 17-dart win.

The vic­tory in the last pairs match se­cured both points for The Ea­gle.

The Work­men’s B faced a po­ten­tial banana skin when The Swan came to visit.

Jim Parker got the away team off to a good start with a 19-dart win while Ian Weir in­creased their lead af­ter scor­ing a 180 in a 20-dart win.

The B Boys had to get their act to­gether - and Gerry Brown made his pres­ence felt with 16-dart and 17-dart wins.

The Work­men’s B then lev­elled but The Swan took the fifth game when Lachie Black hit a max­i­mum and Davy Cun­ning­ham with a 19-darter had to come from be­hind to tie the match again.

The Swan took the seventh game when Gor­don Jack­son hit a 19-dart win but thanks to a 19-darter from Tam Fer­gu­son the sides went into the pairs games level. These matches were also shared - as were the points - but The Swan will be more than happy with the draw.

In Calder­bank, The Post recorded another win with a pos­i­tive show­ing against The Work­men’s A.

It wasn’t all one way traf­fic though as Alex McNeil got the vis­i­tors off to a great start.

Dougie Pair­man was the best player for The Post on the night with a 180 and a 17-dart win while Paul Cushen man­aged a 20.

Lee Bar­ber, the cap­tain of the A squad, did well with a 19-dart win.

At the Bank So­cial Club, The Al­bert Bar will be dis­ap­pointed that they never came away with any­thing.

Ian Wilson again led the Al­bert team to a good start, but the longer the game went the bet­ter the home side got and even­tu­ally ran out win­ners.

Ge­orge Lind­say made his re­turn for The Forge af­ter sev­eral years and showed that he is a qual­ity player by record­ing an 18-dart win to help The Forge to de­feat The Boar’s Head.

Car­sons kept the mon­ster dart ma­chine rolling along when they bull­dozed Wilson Arms to hold top spot.
