Another League Singles title for Kevin Gray


                    League Singles runner up Erlend Lennie with winner Kevin Gray.

The final ranking tournament of the season took place last Friday night in the Masonic. 

A slightly lower than expected turnout of 38 players took part in the League Singles. 

This was the final ranking tournament of the season with selection for the KDDL select team to represent the league in the annual match against Shetland up for grabs,

Some of the top players went out early on but by the semi-final stage it was regular semi finalists Kevin Gray up against Stevie Garner and Paul Foubister against the upcoming Erland Lennie. 

Kevin and Erland both won 4v1 in comfortable fashion,  the final itself produced some excellent darts but when Erland missed doubles in the 4th leg to tie up the match at 2 all Kevin took full advantage and reeled of the 2 legs in style to win 5v1 and claim his fifth title of the season and winning the league singles for the 7th time . There were 10 high checkouts on the night and 17 180s with Erland getting 5 of them . 

The ranking points were quickly added up and after a team meeting to select the 3 wildcards the following players have made the team to play shetland, with captain Craig Taylor. 

Kevin Gray, Iain Linklater, Brett Dickinson, Stevie Garner, Erland Lennie, Jaime Drever, Bruce Moar, Stevie Linklater, Brian Moar, Robbie Stanger, Wayne Monkman, and Paul Foubister,  reserves Erland Ritch, Ian Finlay, Stevie Moar, Josh Alexander. 

The B league select to play in Shetland was also finalised and is as follows, Josh Alexander, Ryan Tulloch, Davie Henderson, George low, Ali Linklater, Robbie Norquoy, Erland Eunson, Nicol Gray, Karl Scott, Jaime Marwick, Oscar Stout, and Jaime Tulloch,  Reserve Logan Peace.

Well done to all the above and good luck against the Auld Enemy. 

The final A league game was played on Monday night with the outcome deciding if it would be the Muppets who played already relegated Bilco boys, or the Murray Arms who went down in the end it was the Muppets who held onto their A league status winning 8v4 on the night to pip the Murray Arms on games difference,  so the Bilco boys and Murray Arms will drop back into the B league next season. 

Fixtures: Friday 22nd Steven Flett mixed dbls in the Kirkwall Legion names in for 7.30pm.
