1st to Play Steve carmicheal, a nervy start continued
through the game and steve could'nt maintain his improved game and lost to K Dowing 3-1
ave- Carmicheal 18.42 Dowing 18.95
2nd up was young Murphy keeping up his winning streak by over coming a stong player in P Minett with some well taken
doubles and a steady game murphy came through to win 3-2
ave- Murphy 20.21 Minett 19.01
3rd Mark Todd came to
the oche with his own fan club in tow, namely his nephew, with his locks flowing and some dogged darts he managed to overcome
R Thomas, Mark came through to win a scrappy game 3-2
ave- Todd 19.76 Thomas 19.19
4th the beast Andrew Dennis
played a very good player in J Marshall with both players hitting some excellent darts. The beast was on for a win but unfortunatly
those doubles did not appear and Dennis losing the game with a better ave than Marshall 3-2
ave- Dennis 21.89 Marshall
5th Ebo was next to play hoping to keep up his M.O.M performance from the last game. Ebo started at a blistering
pace and throwing some superb darts was on the way to an excellent result against N Williams. But a game that could have gone
either way Williams took out the doubles required and Ebo lost the game again with a better ave than his opponent. The result
of 3-2 to Williams was not a reflection on the darts thrown by Ebo.
ave- Ebo 24.29 Williams 23.63
6th Gordon Grey
next to the oche overcoming his opponent K Davies with some ease. Grey thowing steady darts with 180 part of his scores, and
hitting his doubles with consistant ease. His opponent did not give up but Grey with his experience and showing no nerves
shook hands winning a well deserved game 3-1
ave- Grey 21.05 Davies 20.04
7th Wayne Williams up against M Dale
was a game that could have gone either way. Williams hitting 180 on his way to a 3-2 win. Some darts thrown were not of the
standard expected from williams but shows that when his back is against the wall he can dig deep and win important games for
ave- Williams 21.28 Dale 18.33
8th A man of the match performance from Carl dawkins against a very good
player in P Hare was the game of the night with the bird hitting some excellent scores and taking his doubles when asked.
This performance shows why the bird is held in great regard by his teammates and produced a game worthly of his M.O.M
Dawkins 25.47 Hare 23.25
9th The last player of the night Damian Edgell has been clicking his heels for 2 games and
was given his chance against R Davies. The game being the last of the night was a very difficult baptism for Edgell. But with
some excellent support from the rest of his team mates and some well taken doubles we saw what we can expect from Edgell in
future games. He won his game 3-2 with what was a dissapointing ave but i am sure that we will see better from this player
in the future.
ave- Edgell 18.35 Davies 18.66
SWANSEA vs RHONDDA BOROUGH
going into the game with an unbeaten record
Swansea B were confident but this confidence was short lived.
Before writing this report can i thank mark
todd who, although ill with a trapped nerve in his shoulder showed the commitment required to have a successful team by turning
up and backing the boys all the way and marking the score sheet all night with no hesitation.
1st Gordon grey came to the oche with a very
respecful average and wins under his belt, gordon could do nothing against a player in G Pugh determined to show his class,
although gordon showed his class with a very good leg and hitting 171 was defeated in a very good game 3-1
grey 21.01 pugh
2nd Damian edgell playing only his second
game did not throw the darts we all know he can and in a dissapointing game lost to A hughes 3-0 we all know that damian can
throw class darts but is at the moment finding it hard to reach his potential. just a mention that hughes took out a very
edgell 18.10 hughes 18.56
3rd young murph has been showing his class
in previous weeks but could not overcome a stubborn m davies and went down 3-0 with murphy hitting 180 and several attempts
at doubles the luck just was'nt there. with both players hitting respectable averages it just was not murphys night.
22.77 davies 22.10
4th wayne williams with already one MOM under
his belt played a very good player in w harries and again williams walked away with the swansea MOM award with his display
winning 3-1 williams feeling under the weather with a bad cold still managed to hit his doubles when required and overcome
his opponent with what could have been an even better average if he was feeling himself.
williams 23.19 harries 18.47
5th steve carmicheal again was mr consistancy
with a steady torrent of 60s and 100s playing m smith. cazz walking away with 3-1 win despite busting 111 in one leg.
cazz seems to have weeks where the darts just flow and other weeks where he will struggle against minor players but seems
to be able to pull it out when required. once again mr consistancy.
carmicheal 19.47 smith 16.25
6th chris webber has been kicking his heels
for 2 weeks and when getting his chance unfortunatly did'nt take it. webber being the player we know he is did not produce
the darts on the night with a very dissapointing game against d rogers losing 3-0. prehaps the break was playing on his mind
and tried to hard but with averages returned he will have to play a lot better to produce the darts and averages we know he
webber 17.89 rogers 15.64
7th steve washer playing his first game standing
in for m todd produced a display of darts that will confuse many people. having taken the first leg against b cole he managed
to lose all track of the game and the nerves really set in. cole hitting two 180s on the way to a 3-1 win.
8th by this time this reporter had to leave
due to onforseen circumstances and missed this excellent game between a dennis and c james, dennis winning the game 3-1 with
a respectful average. i am sure that dennis produced the steady game we have all come to expect from him and.
c james 18.35
9th game of the night brought together two
players in c dawkins and j james both capable of hitting high standards of darts. the game apparently did not disappoint
with both players hitting very good averages and high scores. dawkins not taking his opportunities on the doubles fell at
the last hurdle 3-1 to the rhonnda MOM disply by davies. i am sure this will not dent the confidence that dawkins has
in his darts and will soon return to winning ways.
this ended the nights darts with Swansea
losing their first game 4-5 but i am sure that by the response that was shown by the swansea players that they will return
to winning ways very shortly.
