Mark Holden’s 14-darter lit up the 5-2 victory for the Grove, Blackley, over the Victoria, their fourth success in as many games, while John Tansey enjoyed a 15-arrow leg as the Friendship, another team with four wins from four matches, beat the Charlestown 5-2.
The Friendship (23 points) are top of the table, a half-point ahead of Boarshaw teams, Higher Blackley Cons, White Hart, Woodside WMC and the Gardeners Arms. Champions Grove lurk dangerously on 21 points but with games oin hand on all but the leaders.
John Farbrother’s 16-darter was the best last week in the Middleton men’s Monday League. It helped his Gardeners (Sandy Lane) team win 4-3 at the Albion. They are joint third in the darts table with the Millbeck, four points behind the Gardeners (Grimshaw Lane), 6-1 winners against the Carters, and 15 points adrift of runaway leaders Joiners. They defeated the Lancashire Fold 6-1, their fifth win from as many matches. The Joiners and the Lancashire Fold are joint top of the crib table with 10 points after the Fold beat them 2-1 last week.
Maureen Jordan’s 21-dart leg of 501, the best so far in the Middleton Ladies League, was consolation for the Jolly Carter, beaten 4-3 by the Oddfellows. Friendship A and Ring O’Bells, who meet on Monday, share top spot in the first division having won all four of their games, while the Carters Arms made it five from five in the second division when they beat Hebers 4-3.
