Packed house at Hemsby for league’s finals night

PUBLISHED: 05:58 28 April 2017


There was a packed house at the Hemsby Village Hall for the Flegg Darts Finals.

In the first match Alkan Mehmed took on Paul Woolston in the Veterans’ Singles Final.

Alkan should have won 2-0, but failed to hit the double in the second leg, allowing Paul to hit back. In the third and decisive leg it was eventually Alkan that finished the job.

The next match was the Youth Singles Final and it was the 2016 winner Kane Read versus Luke Carpenter. Although both players know they can play a lot better it was Luke that won it 2-0.

Then followed the Mixed triples final as Kerry Jobson, Andy Mason and Rob Mooney took on Amanda Dyball, Neil Horn and Martin Seaman. Although there was a 180 from Andy, it was the Amanda, Neil and Martin team that were more consistent throughout the match to clinch a 2-0 win.

Next match on was the Mixed Pairs, and Paul Woolston would have better luck this time as he and Chrissy Woolston deservedly overcame the 2016 winners Amanda Dyball and Neil Horn 2-0.

The Memorial Cup drawn pairs saw Alex Betts and Eddie Woodward take on Claire Broom and Ollie King, with Alex and Eddie storming to a 2-0 win.

The Ladies’ Pairs Final then followed, and the mother and daughter team of Mandy and Kerry Jobson took on the 2016 winners Chrissy Woolston and Claire Broom. In a close match it was Kerry and Mandy who recorded a 2-1 win. Remarkably this is the fifth time these two have won the competition.

Next up was the Men’s Pairs Final between Barry Wortley and Phil Monsey and Paul Woolston and Darren Millard. Although Phil started with a 140, the pairing of Paul and Darren scored relentlessly throughout, Paul hitting the second maximum of the evening in a 2-0 win.

In the Ladies Singles Final three times and current holder Kerry Jobson took on 2015 winner Chrissy Woolston. In a tight encounter Kerry held on to her crown with a 2-1 rwin.

The final event of the evening brought together two outstanding players as Martin Seaman, the 2016 runner-up, took on youngster Ollie King. Both players scored well and although Ollie hit the third 180 of the evening it was Martin who deservedly won 2-1.

An auction in aid of the Nelson’s Journey charity followed.
