Live League: Payne off and running

Josh Payne took the early lead on Tuesday, in ending Day 1 of Group A, top, after winning four of his five matches, with Champions Week of Phase 1 commencing at the Online Darts Live League. 

Payne, who entered Champions Week having won the opening week of Phase 1 at the beginning of February, won four of his five matches as he took the early lead, in recording victories over Robert Owen, Jim McEwan, Lisa Ashton and Colin Osborne, with his only defeat coming against Scott Baker. 


Elsewhere, Jim McEwan also ended the day with 8 points from 10, but sits behind Payne on leg difference. Three players in Scott Baker, Lisa Ashton and Colin Osborne all sit on 4 points each, with Baker sitting in 3rd with a higher leg difference between the trio, as Robert Owen sits bottom on 2 points.
