West Midlands Lose Out To Derby In Relegation Battle

Red Dragon Darts

With both teams struggling for points West Midlands had a vital away game against Derbyshire in the Andy Wheeler Fisheries Championship Division but returned on the wrong side of the close 19-17 result to see their hosts move two points above them with a game in hand and the Midlanders drop into a next to bottom of the table position with 153 points with just one more game to play.

West Midlands will have home advantage in their final game against Northamptonshire who are three places above them in the table and have thirteen points more than them, Oxfordshire are two places above and with 156 points are only three to the good the West Midlands but their final game is an away tie against bottom of the division Cleveland and points should be a little easier to obtain than those for the West Midlands.

Saturday’s games saw the ladies ‘B’ lose 5-1, Jacqueline Trott their sole winner with a 13.30 average. The men’s ‘B’ went down 7-5 with Glen McGrandle their top player with a 26.62 average. The ladies ‘A’ finished on the wrong side of a 4-2 scoreline with Jacqueline Maiden clinching the lady of the match award for her 19.51 average while Shaun Carroll took the men’s ‘A’ award for his 31.17 average with his team making the overall score a more respectable 19-17 by winning 9-3.
