THE Bognor Friday Night Summer League’s summer season concluded with a blind trebles knockout followed by the trophy presentation at the Newtown Social Club. It was a quiet night with only 57 players taking part in the knockout.

The early rounds saw some great darts from many players, but in the quarter-finals some of the ladies felt their male partners let them down.

In the first semi-final, Dave Owens, Alex Norgett and Matt Shoebridge beat Karl Wingate, Rick Cousins and Andy Stubbs in a close game.

The second saw Simon Edwards, Steve Aizlewood and Ashley Clements get the better of Steve Taylor, Declan Belcher and Keith Robinson.

Once again a knockout final went to the full three legs with the tons being shared between both sides. The last leg started slowly but picked up withe a ton on each side. Both team were left on 40 after 24 darts, but then there was double trouble. Eventually the double was hit and the winners were Edwards, Aizlewood and Clements who received the £110 jackpot.

With a great selection of raffle prizes to be won, and an excellent selection of trophies supplied by C&M Trophies of Littlehampton, the presentation went well.
