Cricketing darters are spot on, on the oche!

The cricket club darters were in fine form when they met Conservative Club at home in their latest Cullompton & District Darts League outing. The team raced into a two-nil lead thanks to wins from Luke Wrightson and Bryn Jones, Jonny Reed, Gary Newall and Jordan Rose all then lost, but captain Alan Dowrick leveled things up at 3-3 at the end of the six singles.

The double saw Luke Wrightson and Jordan Rose edge the cricketers into a four-three advantage and the win was confirmed when Alan Dowrick and Steve Birley won their doubles. The visitors claimed success in the last of the doubles – a narrow defeat for Gary Newall and Jonny Reed, but overall 5-4 success for the home team.

Next up for the cricketing darters is a visit to the oche at the Kings Head, Cullompton.
