Southern Regional Darts Final – Sun 26th May

Southern Regional Darts Final
Sunday 26th May 2013

The players gathered at Riley’s in Victoria, London for the latest Regional final where eight players would qualify for a place at the National Final in Sheffield on 24th November.

After the preliminary games had been played we were left with the final eight who all qualify for the National Final;

  • Andy Rennie v Norman Lockwood (both from the White Hart in Orpington)
  • Curtis Hammond (The George, Ipswich) v Jamie Loader (Riley’s, Victoria)
  • John Power v David Cook (both Riley’s, Victoria)
  • Steve Page (Half Crown, South Benfleet) v David Stiff (The George, Ipswich)

All four quarter finals were pretty even contests, although some excellent finishing meant that some of the final score lines did not reflect how close it was in each leg.

The semi-finalists were Andy, who defeated Norman 4-1, Curtis with a similar score line against Jamie, John with a 4-2 win over David and Steve with a 4-1 victory over David.

In a high scoring contest Andy was beaten 4-0 by Curtis who was superb on the doubles, the other semi saw a very close fought contest with Steve eventually coming home a 4-3 winner against John.

Steve put up a good fight in the final bur Curtis carried on his good form and ran out a 5-1 winner to pick up the first prize of £100.
