The singles league reached its conclusion last Friday in the Sea Angling Club.

Reaching the semi-finals were Jamie Reid, Andy Dowie, Murdo Alex Macleod and David Macmillan.

In the first semi-final Andy Dowie’s experience got him over then line to record a 4-1 win over Jamie Reid. In the 5th leg Andy hit a 180 and a 66 checkout to win the game.

David Macmillan eased into the final with a comfortable 4-0 victory over Murdo Alex. Both players hit a 180 in this game.

Into the singles league final and Andy won the first leg hitting a 180 and a double 8 to finish. In leg two David levelled the game with a double top finish. The third leg was a cracker and David won it with a double 12 checkout, after just missing the bull for a 170 finish. Andy won the next leg to make the score 2-2 in this best of seven final.

David claimed the next leg with a 64 checkout to take the lead for the first time. Andy also hit a 180 in this leg, his second of the game. Andy then pipped David to win a scrappy 6th leg to ensure this final would go all the way to the wire.

David has played Andy in many a final but he saved his best darts for this last leg as he hit a 180 and got a 17 Dart double 20 to win the singles league title for the first time. Congratulations to both players for producing such a thrilling final and let`s hope that the standard can be maintained in the forthcoming Darts Festival which runs from Monday 28th January to Saturday, February 2.
