Rookie darts player Tommy Brissbourne had a night to remember in the latest round of the Whitchurch Monday League matches.
Tommy recorded perhaps the most significant win of his darting career as he defeated seasoned Super League player Scott Pitchford 2-1 as the Wheatsheaf B did battle at the Old Eagles, but despite Tommy's efforts and wins for team-mates Jim McGuinness and yours truly, the Eagles swooped to a 4-3 victory.
With leaders Red Cow put out to graze with a bye, the Eagles narrowed the gap at the top to two points.
The Shroppie Fly flew into third place after a 5-2 win at bottom placed Fox and Goose and in the remaining fixture the Wheatsheaf also enjoyed a 5-2 win at home to Red Lion Malpas.
The forthcoming round of matches could well be renamed Super Monday with two "six pointers" taking place as the top two lock horns at the Red Cow whilst at the other end of the table Wheatsheaf B entertain the Fox and Goose which will both go some way to defining the league placings as we approach halfway.
There was an
eventful match in the Nantwich Friday League as the Wheatsheaf entertained a strong Nantwich outfit and many will still be wondering how they ended up on the wrong end of an 8-1 score line in a match that featured SIX maximum 180s, four of which were hit by Wheatsheaf players Phil Wragg, Gary Crowther, Paul Ankers and yours truly.
Indeed Phil and Gary's were hit in consecutive throws in a pairs leg which is quite an achievement.
Overall the Wheatsheaf amassed seven points and in any other match would have doubled their overall points haul which was testament to how well the opposition threw.
This Friday the Wheatsheaf are on their travels to the Jolly Tar. Finally, a date for your diary.
Next Thursday (July 21) there is a darts knockout at the Wheatsheaf. £3.00 to enter with a prize pot of at least £50 on offer.
