Flett Shield win for Gary and Nicky

The Steven Flett Memorial Darts took place on Friday night when 16 pairs contested the competition, the first of three charity events to round off the domestic darts season, but before the season is out, there is also the big one, the inter-county match against Shetland this week in Lerwick.

Winners in the Steven Flett mixed doubles competition were birthday boy Gary Wilson and Nicky Laird who beat Mark Shearer and Anne McOmish 4-2 in the final.

Earlier, previous holders Kevin and Shona Gray were beaten in the first round by Stevie Linklater and Elizbeth Irvine, however their progress was halted by Mark and Anne and the semi-final stage.

League president Craig Taylor said a huge thanks to all who took part and donated prizes for the raffle on the night.

Funds raised at this event, which was almost £200, and from the Tattie Bogle Charity Shield next month, on May, Friday 11, will be donated to Eunson Kloss Residents Association.

The May weekend charity darts fundraiser in the Masonic on Friday, May 4, will be donated to Macmillan Orkney in memory of Carole Celli who always very kindly supported the charity fundraising at the event and many others.

This week the men’s and ladies KDDL teams head to Lerwick to contest the annual fixtures against their Shetland rivals.

The Orkney men have a record setting 8-in-a-row victories in the sights, but Shetland will be trying all out to stop them, however the reds will be determined to keep the run going. The darting drama will be played out on the big stage in the Lerwick Legion.
