You have jumped up to 2nd Matt, at least until you enter the R15 results in which I did rather well :shock:
My recent form had been rubbish but it all came good on Saturday :)

Indeed, we actually had one leg with three players scoring ton-plus scores, Peter 114, Antony 111 & Lax 108, not to be outdone Kevin hit the winning double in this leg, thereby proving the classic saying "scores for show, doubles for dough!"

This shows the extent of Antony's form - 9.3 points is an impressive return for one days darts! Kevin ploughs on up top with another 7.71 to his total, Laxmeesh weighed in with a none-to-shabby 4.64, Peter 3.82 and Tangy 1.00 - all other players failing to score.

* eventually will add a nifty link to the results pages allowing you to click through to a mini-league table showing just that day's results. Eventually!
Three singles wins at the end of the night really helped, including a 64 checkout. We only had a few players on Saturday but somehow the "brothers grim" kept on pairing up. Usually we don't do that well as a team but on Saturday it was a good combo.
