Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - - Sport Starts Here -

Dar­ren Butcher starred as Mar­ket A handed Faver­sham Darts League lead­ers The Brents a 6-3 de­feat. The open­ing dou­bles set the tone for the even­ing, with a bar­rage of ton­plus scores for Mar­ket’s Chris Dadd and 180s for Brents’ Martin Cole and Mar­ket’s Butcher. Mar­ket fin­ished the dou­bles 3-0 to the good but Brents hit back with sin­gles wins for Cole and Ke­iron Boor­man be­fore Mike Brett won for the Mar­ket to put them 4-2 in front. Ivan Boor­man pulled one back for Brents but the game was won by Pat Clancy and Butcher then rounded things off, helped by his sec­ond max­i­mum and a su­perb 155 check­out. Cas­tle A hosted The Rugby Club and led 3-0 out of the dou­bles be­fore sin­gles vic­to­ries by Bob Ma­son, Steve Wright, C Bartlett and Lee Grigsby saw them to a 7-2 suc­cess. The Three Tuns were at home to Horse­shoes B who led 2-1 after the dou­bles. Sin­gles wins for the Tuns by Rory Gat­ward, Clive Pout and Dink Har­man were coun­tered for the Shoes by Rob For­ber and Rob Jones with John Ed­wards tak­ing the cru­cial ninth game to give the Shoes a 5-4 vic­tory mar­gin. Mar­ket B recorded a 6-3 home win over Cas­tle B, hav­ing led 2-1 after the dou­bles. Jor­dan Hard­ing, Paul Jones, Craig Pre­ston and Kiah Lee all en­joyed sin­gles wins to con­tinue the Mar­ket’s im­pres­sive run. A strong home per­for­mance by Rail­way Ho­tel re­sulted in an 8-1 vic­tory over The Bull A, for whom Ian Apps was the only scorer. Rail­way skip­per Phil Nut­ting added an­other 18 to his tally. Bull B eased past the Queens Head 7-2, helped by sin­gles suc­cesses for Steve Alexan­der, Dave Kirby, Gra­ham Amer and debu­tant Wes Gore, who scored a 180. Gavin Har­daker and Leigh Bean replied for the losers. Three Horse­shoes A were vis­ited by an ever-im­prov­ing Foot­ball Club who emerged from the dou­bles 3-0 up. Sin­gles wins by Ge­orge Har­ris, Neville Boakes, Shane Love, Richard Boswell and David Miles ex­tended the lead to 8-0 be­fore Alan Coomber grabbed a con­so­la­tion for the Horse­shoes.
