The first competition of the Oswestry and District Darts League season took place last week with more than 30 pairs competing.

A hard-fought session saw the 35 teams narrowed down to just four at The Ex-Serviceman’s Club in Oswestry.

Playing for a place in the final of the Pick Your Partner Doubles competition, sponsored by Barrs Love Cars, was Darren Rowe and Mim Jones of the Sports Lounge, taking on Adrian Logsdail and Steve Tomley of the Black Lion A.

The teams showed off some great darts in the closely-contested match which saw a 180 from Darren.

It was the pair from the Black Lion A who booked their spot in the final.

The second semi-final saw the pair of Glyn Jones and Barry Morris, of the Hand Inn, faced Steve Jones and Rich Tomlinson, also of the Hand Inn.

Another closely-fought tie was played out, but there could only be one winner and that was the team of Glyn and Barry.

The pair will now join Steve Tomley and Adrian in the final which takes place on finals night at the end of the season.
