Kevin Guy came out on top in the clash of the night against Davey Thompson in the Knack Darts Premier League in Seaham.

Guy took full advantage of a couple of missed doubles in legs one and three, by Davey as he stormed into a 3-0 lead.

Despite a fightback by Thompson, it was second-placed Guy, with the help of two maximums, who deservedly came out on top 5-2.

Guy enjoyed winning legs of 23, 15, 20, 20 and 17 darts.

Southwick’s reigning champion Paul Williams and Ryhope number one John Redpath were involved in a eight-leg thriller which ended in a 4-4 draw.

Williams looked to have the edge when leading 4-2, but Redpath never gave up and fought back to win the last two legs and take a point.

Graham Mullen had to be at his best to see off Alan Smith in another eight-leg thriller, with Mullen’s winning legs in 22, 15, 18, 24 and 17 darts, including a tremendous 141 checkout.

Jimmy Ashett made it seven wins from seven with a 5-1 victory over an improved Barry Rutherford.

Spiller Henderson showed the form of last season as he hit 18 ton-plus scores in a 5-3 win over Anth Skelton.

Eddie Ashman made it eight 180s for the season as he hit three in a hard fought 5-3 win against Steve Skinner.

Martin Price hit a 180 as he opened up with an excellent 13-dart leg and went on to win 5-1 against John Squire.

Neil Rose also hit a maximum and won in legs of 14, 16 and 20 darts, with a 5-2 win over Neil Richardson.

Anthony Gale was a 5-2 winner when he overcame Ray Malarkey in a scrappy affair with a best leg of 18 darts.
