A Look Back In Time - Alan Towe 13-06-201

Two top teams, Stirchley United WMC and Newbridge met in a division one clash in the South West Birmingham Clubs Summer League and the outcome, as expected, was some first class darts play. One of the best games of the evening was provided by A.Wright (Stirchley United) and S.Rainey (Newbridge). Rainey chalked up a 180 plus a 100, but it was his opponent with 135,112 break and 134 who got the 2-1 verdict to help his team to a very close 4-3 victory. Newbridge man L.Scullion recorded the fastest leg of the match, taking just eight darts.

Something had to give in the tie between Brunswick and Selly Oak Flights. Neither team had lost prior to the match, the result was a 4-3 win for Selly Oak.

There was another close game in division two where Caledonian Corks defeated Bournbrook Flights 4-3 after Flights had taken a 3-0 lead. D.Cockayne was on the mark for Corks hitting not only 2x100 but also a 180.


An 8-1 home win over Red Hill has kept Sheldon Heath Flights 100% win record intact in the Small Heath Summer League. With four wins Sheldon have a maximum eight points similar to the Black Horse who beat Montgomerys 7-2. However, Black Horse have played one more fixture than Sheldon.

In the other match played Saltley Flights accounted for Custard House ‘B with a 6-3 scoreline.
