The new season finally starts tomorrow night. A reminder that the order of play in matches has
changed for this year as agreed at the AGM. The away team will put name up first and throw first
in games 1, 3, 5, 7 and 9 with the home team doing the same in games 2, 4, 6, 8.

The list of registered players has been updated to show the players for each of the ten teams
in the league. Captains need to be aware that players can be registered with the league by text
with the league secretary up to 8:30pm on the night of a match and will therefore not show up
on the online list until the next day though the player is still able to play on the night of

Good Luck to all teams taking part this year

At the AGM a motion was passed to rempve the need for signed match cards. As a pre-requisite
to this all teams need to hand in a full list of players to the league secretary for them to
be posted on the website to enable teams to check each others players when a match takes place.

The initial list of players has now been uploaded to the website though I'm still waiting on
two teams to provide their list of players. Can secretaries please check that the list on the
website is correct for their team.

Players names must be with the league secretary before they can play in a match. Players names
can be provided up to 8:30pm on the night of the match.

PLAYOFF FOR 2018-2019

I know the new season is about to start but the playoff for last years league title spilled
over to tonight and the result was Claremont 5-4 Queen of Martyrs,

It was a tight game all the way through with QoM taking an early 3-1 lead but Claremont fought 
back to draw level at 3-3, QoM then took the next game to make it 4-3 only for Claremont to
drag it back to 4-4. The final game maybe could have gone either way but Claremont edged it to
take the title they so very nearly threw away at the end of the normal season. Congratulations
to League Winners CLAREMONT and commiserations to Queen of Martyrs who came so close.


Commiserations to Queen of Martyrs



Congratulations to CLAREMONT

NEW SEASON 2019 - 2020

All the information for the new season has been uploaded to the website. There are a couple of
minor changes to the web layout. 

"Competition Dates" which used to be a tab/link on the top and side of the Home Page has now
been replaced by a "CALENDAR" tab/link which shows a calendar for the whole year including
League, Competition and SPARE dates.

"Competition Dates" can now be found under the "Competitions" tab/link.

I have removed some of the redundant links to other dart sites frm the "Darts Links" tab as
they no longer seem to provide any useful information.

Good Luck to all teams for the new season - starts on Monday 29th July.
