None more so than Anne Lofthouse and her win against new leader John Leach. John had earlier in the night seen off Charlie Stocks 6-1 and Anne had also seen off Andrew Friar 7-0 and with the two meeting in the game of the week, it was Anne who hit 3 sub 21 dart legs and John also but Anne taking a 4-1 lead which held her on for a famous 4-3 victory. John with a very good win under his belt and the 3 points from the game with Anne makes him a clear leader at the top of this week's league. Micky Stocks continues to climb with another two wins this week along with Ben Beardmore and Dave Wilson who also won his games this week. Antony Ainsworth keeps moving up with a good 5-2 win against fellow journeyman Lee Thompson. Last week's leader Maison Wilson also won 5-2 over Sie Simons. Steve Hattersley picked up valuable points this week to keep pressure on the leaders as did Tom Briggs. Player of the week has to be Anne Lofthouse and she was also involved in game of the week with John Leach although we had a few nail-biting games with Gavin and Lee. Dave Wilson grabbed a 4-3 win over Pete Bramley and Tom with a 4-3 also.
