The men’s ‘B’ after going 4-2 down salvaged a 6-6 draw when Tom Martin won the last game of the day against Robert Turner 4-1. The man of the match award went to David Hill who in the opening game of the day beat Lennie Holmes 4-2 after Holmes had won the first two legs, Hill’s average 27.19.

West Midlands fixture in the Premier Division of the BDO Inter County Championships was a home tie against bottom of the table Cheshire, a game they desperately needed to win to evade any possibility of relegation. Both of the ladies teams shared the points as the ‘B’ team went from 2-1 down to 3-2 up and then lost the last game to finish level, the lady of the match award going to Shellbie Simmons who beat Lyn Marsden 3-2 and averaged 15.42. The ‘A’ side after trailing 3-1 battled on to finish all square at 3-3 with anchor player Sarah Roberts winning 3-0 against Jane Stubbs to not only salvage a draw for her team but at the same time take the match award for her superb 24.64 average. Both of the men’s teams finished on the wrong side of a 7-5 result with Shane Price the ‘B’ teams top player with a great 30.25 average and for the ‘A’ it was Nick Fullwell who averaged 29.47. The overall 20-16 defeat has seen West Midlands drop into the bottom two places in the table on the same 95 points as their bottom placed opponents with both team’s three points short of Essex who are just above them. With tough away games against Lincolnshire and Glamorgan and just one home tie with current league leaders Lancashire relegation now looks a real threat for the Midlands side.
