Big week for darts stars
Airdrie and District darts league star Cameron Menzies will head to the oche at the Grand Slam of Darts.
Menzies accumulated enough points after becoming a Winmau World Masters semi-finalist to move up to sixth place in the BDO world rankings – and secured a wildcard place in the tournament.
Menzies, who features for Carsons in the Airdrie league, is eagerly awaiting the announcement of who he will face in his group – with a guarantee of at least three games in the competition.
Meanwhile, in league action, Carsons kept top spot with a big win at The Boar’s Head.
Phil McBride hit a 20-darter for the champions, with Jim McGeary and Alan Henry scoring maximums.
The Boar’s Head did put in a good performance though - with Ross Walker battling to a 20-dart win.
Workmen’s B kept up the pressure at the top of the table with a convincing win over Wilson Arms.
Their counterparts the Workmen’s A kept their winning run going as they stunned The Albert Bar with an 8-4 win.
Bank Social Club drifted further down the table with a 9-4 slip up to The Swan, and The Barnyard made it two wins in a row with a narrow 7-5 win over The Clansman.
Jack McKay was the star of the show for Barnyard – formerly The Forge -– with a 180 and an 18-darter.
The Post have been a surprise package for many teams this season, and the league new boys cruised to victory as Paul Cushen struck an 18-darter and Dougie Pairman hit a 16-darter and 21-darter.
Luck of the draw Cameron Menzies
