UKDA National League: Midlands Report

Warwickshire County Darts Organisation’s second fixture in the Cosmo Darts Premier Division of the UKDA National League was an away game against Essex. Prior to the fixture Warwickshire were fourth in the division with 23 points and their hosts fifth on 22 points so a close result was envisaged.

That however was not the case as the home team went on to win 21-15 to lift them to third in the table with 46 points and see Warwickshire drop two places to sixth with 38 points.

The Warwickshire ladies teams were in form as they both chalked up 4-2 victories with Tammy Montgomery taking the ‘A’ teams match award for her 23-12 average and 3-0 win over Wendy Collins while Chloe McKivett was the ‘B’ teams top lady with a 20.59 average and again a straight 3-0 win in her game with Kerry Rudd.

It was not such good news for the men’s teams as the ‘B’ side lost 8-4, Nigel Heydon the man of the match with a 27.57 average in his 4-3 win over Phil Brewster and taking the ‘A’ team’s award was Jamie Atkins who had 28.05 average in his 4-2 win over Darren Peetoom as the team went down 9-3.
