Darts News – A West Midlands Round Up By Alan Towe

It was certainly third time lucky for Warwickshire as in their rearranged premier division fixture with Cheshire in the BDO Inter County Championships they followed up two consecutive defeats with a terrific 22-14 win.
It was something of a strange weekend as both ladies teams finished all square at 3-3 and both men’s teams chalked up 8-4 wins.
For the ladies Trina Gulliver (22.43) and Lisa Whitmore (19.30) took the respective ‘A’ and ‘B’ team awards while for the men’s ‘A’ it was Dean Stewart with a great 30.36 average and for the ‘B’ Matthew Edgar recorded a tremendous 32.58 average.
The win has seen Warwickshire move up from next to bottom of the table to second place with 53 points, however the remainder of the teams in the division at this point had only played two games.
