Dave Prins cemented his place at the top of the league table with two excellent wins.

Prins easily saw off Eddie Ashman 5-0, with best legs of 16, 17, and 18 (twice) darts.

Tyne and Wear County player Rob McCluskey came away with maximum points on the night with two solid victories.

McCluskey beat David Brown 5-2, with two best legs of 19 darts, and an excellent 15 dart leg with a 104 checkout.

Rob then faced the impressive Dan Gillibrand and despite Gillibrand leading 3-2, McCluskey rallied back to win the game 5-3.

Brown was a comfortable 5-1 winner over Ray Malarky in his other game.

Gillibrand shared the spoils in a 4-4 draw with Durham County star Paul Clark and was a comfortable 5-1 winner against Dougie Hall.
