Big week for darts stars

Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser - - Sports -

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
