Semi-finals

Crown Duels 4 Z Team 3: Z Team took the lead as Steve James set the standard hitting a 180. Brian Laverick pulled Crown level before Alan Alder restored the lead, only to be pegged back again as Ben Hopkins drew the teams level again.

Mark Foster took a nervy decider to give Crown advantage before the doubles matches. Kev Walters & Bob Gardner won the first doubles to bring it to a decider. Mark Foster & Brian Laverick were able to complete the job and send Crown Duels to the final.

The Big P 4 Wheatsheaf Inn 1: Wheatsheaf Inn were shy to get started against The Big P. Dan Powell got his team off to a winning start. Jason Murray also gifted a head start and showed no remorse with his win. Bhav Solanki also kept the pressure on as a 3-0 lead put them in pole position.

Mike Feasey had different thoughts and kept his team in it, but Tony Reesby put a stop to it and saw his team into the final before any doubles had to be played.

Final - The Big P 3 Crown Duels 4: Brian Laverick was up first and earned a 2-0 win for the Crown. Tony Reesby pulled The Big P level but Crown took the lead as Mark Foster is triumphant. This was backed up again as Rich Ludlow gave Crown Duels a 3-1 lead.

Under pressure now, Jason Murray kept his side in the final and was backed up when Jason Murray & Tony Reesby were able to draw their team level and into the the last game.

Rich Ludlow & Brian Laverick had the honours to help get their team over the winning line and top off an eventful summer season of great darts.

A special thanks to hosts Stephanie & Jamie from the Bar 8 who sponsored the Summer League and set up a great venue that deserves more darts competition in the future.
