DAVEY Thompson continued his rich vein of form as he collected six points to move up to fourth place in Seaham’s Knack Premier League.

Firstly, Davey beat Alan Smith and despite Smith taking the opening leg, it was one way traffic after as Thompson won the next five including 15 and 17 darters.

Next up for Thompson was Graham Mullen, and he was left shell shocked as Thompson was in sensational form as he came out a 5-0 victor.

Eddie Ashman in excellent form as he beat Anthony Gale in a one sided game which saw Ashman take the opening leg in a tremendous 14 dart leg, aided by a maximum.

Ashman then reeled off the next four legs, including two more 180s, a 124 finish and another 14-dart leg to complete the win.

Smith’s second game of the night was also a whitewash, but it was Spiller Henderson who produced the goods to claim three much needed points.

Anth Skelton moved up to seventh after a 5-0 win against Neil Richardson, with Skelton hitting two maximums on the way to victory.

John Squire continues to improve after he took a well deserved point against high-flying John Redpath.

Barry Rutherford produced his best performance of the season, though it came in vain as he faced leader Paul Williams, with Williams claiming a 5-2 win.

Kevin Guy moved up to second after a 5-0 win against Neil Mather.

Ray Malarkey hit a maximum and had winning legs of 19 and 20 darts as he shared the points against Ronnie Gill in a 4-4 draw.

Eddie Guy and Neil Rose’s match also ended in a draw.
