Danny JamesDarts ace Danny James is thought to be the first player to achieve a minimum nine-dart finish in the Shropshire Super League.
James, from St Georges in Telford, hit the perfect nine dart 501 leg during a win for title-chasing Dun Cow against Red Lion’s Pete Huddlestone.
“I am well chuffed,” admitted James. “Even to think about it now means that I get knots in my stomach.
“I’ve hit a couple of consecutive 180s in the past but never come close to a nine dart checkout.
“It truly was a moment to savour.”
It was certainly no fluke by the 33-year-old, who has won 17 of his19 Super League matches for Dun Cow as they battle it out with Childs Ercall at the top of the table, notching 10 maximum 180s.
James, who also plays for Shropshire’s A side in the BDO inter-counties championship, is third in the men’s averages table.
