W.C.D.D.L. Singles champion 2015

Gordon THE Bruce

 

W.C.D.D.L.

The League singles event saw the top players all turn up to try and add this prestige’s competition to their c.v. However when the dust from the chalk boards had settled it saw two players from the Brigands of the Paraffin Lamp toe the ocky, and it was once again young v old! One of the country’s top emerging talents over the past few years a player who has played under 18’s and 21’s in Scottish colors from Craigshill Arran  ARRY Edwards was up against a player who also back in the 1980’s was also one of the country’s finest players Gordon THE Bruce. They say time does not stand still for anyone well Gordon once again showed that he still has it and after some superb darts thrown by both players it was the elder statesman Gordon Bruce who held the trophy aloft, congratulations to Gordon a team mate of mine many seasons back, also congratulations to Arran Edwards who played brilliantly well all night had it not been for Gordon the title would have certainly gone his way, always next year, so well played to both these Paraffin Lamp Brigands. And for the rest of us there is always next year (isn’t there)

(Cast your mind’s back to what I said before the first arrow hit the flock)

Well for those with long memories, I did state on this web site that the runners for the Premier League at the beginning of this season would be between the Assassins of Pumpherston , the Brigands from the Centre, and the Nomads of West Calder, O.K. the Nomads have dropped out the league race but they won the K.O. Cup and that is no mean feat, And here we are at the cusp with the Assassins two points clear and the Brigands just the two points adrift, and yep the Highway Men in third place and may yet as stated many months ago the jokers in the pack, with something to say on how the league finishes up. However if the Assassins win they are Champions and after leading for so long from the start could anyone say that they did not deserve the title, But they are up against the Chalkers from Uphall Station so who knows anything can happen, For those teams in the mix wish you all the best may the arrows be with you!. The Championship league title was sorted a couple of weeks back and the Doo Club Flyers have that league safely tucked away, I am not sure yet but it looks as if the Almonvale Pirates are in the driving seat for runners up position in the league with the Farmers of Brucefield having their free week so will be some very nervous captains this evening, But hey that is why we play the darts isn’t it, got have some nerves or why play. All the best to everyone in both leagues a long season and just tonight and the singles to go so well done to you all. And hopefully see many of you at the darts presentation dance.

 

HI Guys and Gals, not a definitive league table but from what I have been told or heard this is what I have come up with, will update when I receive the proper tables from the match secretary.

W.C.D.D.L.

  Well what a fabulous night of arrows with three competitions being held all at the same time, the Ladies singles championship, the Delegates championship and the Champion of Champions championship.

  First to the ladies title and what a cracking competition they had, The semi final line up saw  Avril Bird a three time ladies champion up against the reigning West Lothian summer league champion Kathy Henderson and in a real nail biter of a match it saw Kathy progress to the final. The second semi final saw two times ladies champion Denise Bird just edging past Fiona Laird in a match with only Denise’s finishing power the difference between these two experienced players. And so to the grand finale would we have a new champion or would Denise make it her third singles title win, well in a superb match it saw Kathy Henderson take the ladies crown to go along with her win last week end in the George Thorburn memorial competition and her summer league titles this certainly is a lady in top form well played, unlucky Denise so at the moment Lydia Barrowman still holds the most ladies titles with four, Avril Bird with three and Denise Bird and Lena Gallagher with two titles each, and in single figure we have Yvonne  Wilson , Julie Marshall and now joining these exceptional dart players we have Kathy Henderson, Well played the ladies.

   The Delegates competition was a hard fought affair with some shocks in store along the way the players from the quarter finals onwards were as follows, John Charleston bt Graeme Bird, Davie Smith bt Stuart Tait, Kathy Henderson bt Stevie Scott (said there were some shocks!)Jim Mitchell bt John Kirk. The semi finals saw Charleston bt Davie Smith and Mitchell bt Kathy Henderson. And so to the grand finale, and though the score line does not do justice to the match it saw Jim Mitchell retain the Delegates title for the second year and his tenth in total by a score line of 4-0 over John Charleston also from the Volunteer Highway Men.

  The Champion of Championship competition saw some of the finest exponents of darting skill in the league take part as you would expect for this prestige’s event. Results from the quarter finals go like this, Derek Bird bt Davie Yule, Pete Hastings bt Gordon Bruce, Wullie Jack bt Alan Wilson, Davie Aitken bt Jim Mitchell, so the semi final stages were set and it saw Derek Bird bt Pete Hastings, Davie Aitken bt Wullie Jack both these matches were close fought affairs with very little between the combatants! And to the grand finale, In a match which swung one way then the other it saw the defending champion just get over the winning line first, congratulations to Davie Aitken who now jointly holds the record for three consecutive championship wins and has put himself into poll position to become the first player to win the title next year for four consecutive times,commiserations to a very gallant runner up in Derek Bird who throw some absolutely fantastic darts on the night.

  So your winners are

  Kathy Henderson Ladies Champion, Jim Mitchell the Delegates champion,  Davie Aitken your C.O.C. Champion.

   Well done to all who took part and a special thanks to Match Secretary Mr John Kirk who kept the competitions running very smoothly indeed. A late night and one which with more people now taking part in these events perhaps a look next season on how to run them as it was the witching hour before the final arrow hit the flock and with travelling time etc some players may not have hit the pillow before 1am (or maybe I’m just getting old!)

This was to be the difference between these pairs , after all other legs kept levelling up with the former always just keeping themselves in front. game finishing with final game of seven in disfavour of the pairing of runners up

Monday night Triples or to give it its politically correct name the Three Person Team!


Cracking turn out with both the upstairs and downstairs dart boards in use. Some tremendous matches on all the boards and when you consider this is a cut throat event with the format being a three person team playing 1x1001, a doubles playing 1x701, and the player who did not play in the doubles playing 1x501 in the singles, so no room for error in any of these games. When the semi finals were about to toe the ocky it saw the Murray Bar Juniors, the Doo Club Flyers and two teams from the Volunteer take to the ocky’s. And it was the two Volunteer Highway Men teams that somehow battled their way through to the finals after some very close matches. This was a repeat of the last four man team competition where the Highway Men had entered two teams and both played off against each other in the Grand finale. So it goes to show how tough this league on a Monday night is, the Volunteer are many points adrift of the Cawburn Assassins who have led for just about all off the season in the league and are two points adrift of the Brigands from the Paraffin Lamp who sit in second place just on the heels of the Assassins. So with so many good teams in both leagues the competition is extremely tough for everyone. (The way it should be)


Winners Volunteer Highway Men – Martin Deegan captain, Gary Scott, Jim Mitchell.


Runners up Volunteer Highway Men- Rex Brady captain, Shaun Robertson, Stevie Duncan.


 

 

Family Borland Sweep the Board!

 

The annual 301 Double start double finish singles competition was held on Monday night.

 

And the league’s elite turned out to do battle to try and lift the title of D Martin 301 championship. And what a field of players with over 80 players putting their name into the draw the competition was to say the least fierce with no quarter given and none excepted. 

And once the chalk dust had settled the two men left toeing the ocky were the Graham and William Borland from the Cawburn Assassins dart team who are sitting top of the league table. It was the more senior one of the brothers who took the title but quite simply a fabulous achievement to have two siblings in the grand final. Graham Borland a top county player for the men’s A team and William Borland who last year in the under 18’s was ranked at number one in Scotland for the youth tour.

 

Well played both men and congratulations to you both. Once again a an extremely well run competition with from the League and Match secretaries (Mr John Kirk & Mr John MacDonald)

at the helm , And a big thank you to our league sponsors the East Calder Doo Club.

Thanks to John Kirk for match stats.

Aberlady Bowling Club, Darts Open Doubles

Saturday 7 March

Good venue and this competition certainly brought out some of the finest talent from round and about with five pairs from West Lothian in attendance the local area was well represented.

Format was 5 x 501 for the early rounds with the final 7x501. The winners on the day were Ryan Murray and Gary Watt from Edinburgh who took the title by 4 games to 1 over Colin Robertson and Jim Mitchell from West Lothian. It was closer than the result shows with Colin and Jim both missing doubles and as we all know that is the part of the game that gets you over the winning line!!!!

Well played Ryan and Gary commiserations to Colin and Jim.

An excellent run tournament with very good prize monies with the s/f picking up £50 per team r/up £130 and winners a lot more!!!!!

A good day out by the seaside was had by all.


Final League positions Bo'Ness Friday night singles league.

Darts News!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well after a busy week end on the darting circuit it has seen county captain William Harraughty add the prestige’s Bathgate League 301 double start double finish competition to his impressive c.v.

Also on the winning trail it saw the pairing of Colin Robertson & Jim Mitchell on their travels, these two doubles partners made the journey down to North Berwick and came away with the Open Pairs title which was held in the Auld Hoose in North Berwick, Colin and Jim both recording maximum scores on the day with Colin on the treble nineteen’s and his partner in crime on the more traditional way!


W.C.D.D.L. Four Person Team Finals.

Well the semi finals of the league Fours saw some superb action as the four teams involved were trying like gladiators of ancient Rome to win the laurel leafs ok (the trophy)

Cawburn Sports Bar Assassins, Paraffin Lamp Brigands, Volunteer Highway Men 1&2. 

On board one we had the Volunteer Highway Men (1) up against the Paraffin Lamp Brigands. And this was a match that ebbed and flowed one way then the other! Colin Robertson edged out Craig Agnew to put the men from Uphall 1-0 up but back came the Brigands with two excellent wins with Gordon Bruce and Stevie Scott getting the better of Jim Mitchell and Gary Scott, so 1-2 for the Paraffin Lamp Brigands, Last game of the singles saw Martin Deegan coming out by 2 legs to 1 over Arran Edwards in superbly high scoring encounter and so after four singles matches score stood at 2-2. The first doubles pairing saw the Brigands team of Gordon Bruce and Arran Edwards winning 2 legs to 1 over Martin Deegan and Gary Scott, so with a 3-2 advantage it was now or nothing for the men from Uphall and it saw the pairing of Robertson and Mitchell keep the match alive edging out Scott and Agnew to take the match into overtime. Now it was a four man 1001 leg which would decide who claimed a grand final spot. And quite simply with absolutely nothing between the teams it saw a double six annexed for the Highway Men which saw them through to the final by the tightest of score lines 4-3.


The semi final on board three saw the Volunteer Highway Men (2) up against the league leaders at the moment from the Cawburn Sports bar or known as the Cawburn Assassins.


Once again a cracking match up which saw the team of Rex Brady, Stevie Duncan, John Fulton and Shaun Robertson taking a 3 games to 1 lead in the singles over William Borland, Paul Weir, Graeme Bird and William Harraughty. A fight back looked on the cards however the match was decided in the final pairs with the Highway Men taking the tie by 4 games to 2.

So the final saw the two teams from the Volunteer line up against themselves, needless to say the Volunteer Highway Men were crowned League Fours champions. So congratulations to Colin Robertson, Jim Mitchell, Gary Scott, Martin Deegan, John Charleston, Shaun Robertson, Rex Brady, Stevie Duncan, John Fulton. To the team from the Volunteer Arms on both teams making it through some tough matches well played the Highway Men from Uphall.

  Some top shooting from the night saw Maximums recorded by Arran Edwards of the Brigands, Stevie Duncan and Gary Scott from the Highway Men, and Colin Robertson with a cracking maximums score of 171 on the treble nineteen bed. Good finishes came from Stevie Duncan superb 121 via 60-11-bulls eye, William Borland with 114 and 77 game shots for the Assassins, Rex Brady 110 game shot, Martin Deegan rock solid 75 take out. Fast games came by way of Colin Robertson 19&20 arrows, Stevie Duncan 18 darter, Stevie Scott 18 dart game, Martin Deegan 17 &20 dart games, Mitchell 19 arrow leg.

  Once again many thanks to the Doo Club our sponsors of the W.C.D.D.L. and Mr John McDonald our League secretary for overseeing the proceedings on the night.

Monday Night darts
The Quiet Men take the Title and the rest of us chalk the board!

Well with the second half of the season now underway it saw the normal league matches stop for a week, not that meant there were no darts being played Monday was the staging of the leagues Two Person Pairs competition the Match play doubles this is a competition where it is played over five legs of 501 with each player in a team playing the members of the opposition and should the score be 2-2 after the four singles legs a sudden death leg of 501 doubles would decide the outcome!
Now this competition is highly regarded to be one of the toughest competitions on the darting calendar to compete in.

Well 44 two person teams turned up to register and so with six boards in use for over three and a half hours the standard was to say the least explosive with many players turning on the style.
Big finishes which are the main stay of all good players were being recorded by many of the league’s top arowsmiths and here are the ones that were recorded on the night,

Jamie Fleming 92 game shot, Jim Quinn from Harthill 113 game shot, Mid Calder’s John Hanlon 98 take out, East Calder Hit Man Stevie Scott rock solid 78 game shot, Craig Agnew finding form with two good finishes off 75 & 80 match shots,
Rex Brady from Pumpherston 80 take out, Gary Finlayson cracking 102 kill, Brian Mairs one of the most underrated dart players in the league cracking 109 take out and a player you must take very seriously indeed.
Darters finding the red lipstick of the treble twenty saw Saun Robertson, Sandy Coulter, Gordon Bruce along with
Rex Brady firing in maximum 180’s also finding a maximum was Kirk Gordon with a superb 171 via the treble nineteen’s.

Now games finished in extra quick time saw some superb efforts put in and here are the ones reported!
West Calder’s Martin Balfour rock solid 20 darter, Scott Cameron (welcome back)! And Stevie Scott also with 20 darters however Stevie then went 3 better and fired in a nice 17 arrow leg, Rex Brady just one adrift of that score with a fine 18 arrow game, Brian Mairs 19 darter, Arran Edwards three excellent legs of darts 2x16 darters and a 19 leg game, Gordon Bruce 2 x14 dart games and a 15 darter, Saun Hanlon nice 18 arrow game, Mitchell a 15 darter.

Well once the first couple of hours of intense competition on the ocky were over we had eight worthy quarter finalists lined up and here are the results!

B Mairs & G Finlayson bt S Scott & C Agnew, The Fabulous Baker boys (brothers) bt M Deegan & R Brady.  S Duncan & S Robertson bt G Bruce & A Edwards, G Borland & G Bird bt J Devlin & J Grant.
Semi finals saw S Duncan & S Robertson bt G Borland & G Bird, B Mairs & G Finlayson bt The Baker Boys.
And then to the final which saw the pairing of Gary Finlayson and his long time darting partner Brian Mairs who represent the Uphall Station Chalkers from Uphall Station claim the title over the team of
Stevie Duncan & Saun Robertson of the Volunteer Highway Men from Uphall.

Congratulations go to the team of Brian and Gary this seasons Match Play Champions, commiserations to Stevie and Saun well played both teams.

For information we have at the moment teams picking up trophies at our end of season bash we have the
Cawburn Assassins, Volunteer Highway Men, Uphall Station Chalkers, Paraffin Lamp Brigands all on the trophy list and with the league so tight in both divisions and with so many teams now having extremely strong teams anyone from the top four in each league could quite simply put take the titles! And remember the teams just outside these positions will have a lot to say who and where the silver ware will end up come the final round up, should be some very exciting times ahead on a W.C.D.D.L. Monday night darts events!

Maximum 180 hitters saw Craig Agnew and Gordon Bruce of the Brigands finding the red lipstick on the night. Top finishes were recorded by John Tannoch from the Pirates of Craigshill with a cracking 100 game shot, other players finishing in style were John Charleston Uphall’s favourite darting son with not one but two 100 game shots, Arran Edwards on target with a 117 take out, Mitchell with a solid 86 game shot. Fast games in the past week were recorded by Martin Deegan 2x17 dart games, Colin Robertson 18 darter, John Charleston 17 and 18 dart games. But fastest game by far was the man from Pumpherston married life must be suiting him as he fired in yet another 12 dart game his second in to weeks Graham Borland once again recording the top game. Other players knocking in solid 20 darters were William Harraughty with 2x20 dart legs and John Two Hands Hanlon also with a 20 darter.
