Social Club stun Shannon in darts series

TODMORDEN Working Men’s Social Club pulled off an excellent result beating high-flying Shannon A in Todmorden Mixed Darts Winter League’s A Division.

TWMSC edged it 11-10 and Hare and Hounds B, who have won two of their three games, head the table, ironically courtesy of a victory over TWMSC and another close win over York Hotel.

In the B Division, Royal George have made it three out of three to lead by two points from Rope and Anchor.

The only maximum 180s have come in the B Division, with A. Franklin’s for British Legion and another from Weavers’ C. Inman.

Players in both divisions have been finishing well.

In the A Division there were finishes of 114 from S. Irving (Hare and Hounds B), 152 from B. Maguire (TWMSC), 116 from J. Hook (TWMSC) and 135 from C. Fenton (Shannon A).

In the B Division best checkouts were from D. Healy (Royal George, 115), D. Mulhearn (Royal George, 102), D. Hargreaves (Rope and Anchor, 114) and M. Gledhill (Rope and Anchor, 98).
