Shannon end - and start - well

TODMORDEN darters have been busy lately, with a summer league final play-off now decided and the winter league getting under way.

The Todmorden Mixed Darts League summer play-off final saw Shannon A emerge victorious after a close match against Royal George.

It was Royal George who took an early lead with S. Walker beating J. Halley in the opening singles match, before Shannon A levelled with a pairing of T. Gill and S Jones defeating D. Hitchen and D. Rez.

Royal George regained the lead when D. Rez beat T. Gill and extended it to 3-1 when D. Healy and D. Mulhearn beat B. Sutcliffe and P. Chadwick.

But Shannon then took the momentum as C. Jones beat D. Healy and C. Fenton and C. Nelmes defeated S. Walker and A. Wright.

It all went down to the final match of the night, where C. Fenton beat D. Mulhearn to clinch the title for Shannon A.

Shannon A have also begun the Todmorden Mixed Darts Winter League A Division campaign well, as have pubmates Shannon B, both sides chalking up opening victories over York Hotel A and Hare and Hounds B respectively.
