DARTS

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

THERE was a dou­ble tri­umph for RAFA Club’s Tony Stephens at the Wy­combe & Amer­sham Darts Club League fi­nals night last Fri­day.

Hav­ing teamed up with Dan Anstiss to win the pairs com­pe­ti­tion, Stephens, who last won the sin­gles com­pe­ti­tion 12 years ago, ended his long wait for a re­peat win by land­ing that tro­phy too.

Anstiss and Stephens beat Tot­teridge SC’s Pat O’Reilly and Leigh Ross in the semis of the pairs be­fore tri­umph­ing 2-0 over Wooburn pair Simon White and Leigh Birch in the fi­nal.

In the sin­gles, Anstiss was knocked out by John Beat­tie (Ha­zle­mere), who then lost in the semis to Rob Br­ere­ton (Wooburn Club), who had beaten Dave Schreiber in the last eight.

Stephen reached the fi­nal by beat­ing Dan Franzen (Wooburn Cub) and Herbi Mar­shall ( RAFA Club), where he lifted the tro­phy with an im­pres­sive 3-1 win over Br­ere­ton.

In the Sec­re­taries Cup, mean­while, O’Reilly beat Andy Long (Wooburn Club) in the semi fi­nal be­fore see­ing off Mick Carl­ton (Cres­sex CC E) 2-0 in the fi­nal.

This fol­lows wins for Tot­teridge and Holmer Green Le­gion C in the team com­pe­ti­tion fi­nals night the pre­vi­ous week.

Tot­teridge won the Chal­lenge Cup af­ter beat­ing Wooburn Club 5-1 in the fi­nal, while the Bowl Com­pe­ti­tion fi­nal went the way of the form book as Holmer beat Winch­more Hill CC 5-3.
