Rising son Kevin’s too good for dad

Have your say

KEVIN Guy confirmed second place in Seaham’s Knack Premier League with a fine performance to outgun father Eddie 5-1.

Eddie won his solitary leg with an excellent 104 finish, but Guy junior proved far too strong as he won his legs in 17, 18, 20 (twice) and darts.

Ronnie Gill put in an excellent performance against league winner Paul Williams.

Gill led 3-2, but Williams showed his class to reel off the last three legs in 17 darts to seal a 5-3 victory.

Gill, who won his legs in 17, 19 and 21 darts, is eighth – the last qualifying spot for the finals night – just two points in front of Martin Price with two games remaining.

Neil Rose denied Price the chance to move into eighth place after he won their game 5-2, with a 19-dart last leg, while Price hit a maximum.

John Redpath all but confirmed his spot in next month’s showdown with a comfortable 5-0 win over Neil Richardson.

Richardson’s night did not get any better as he found himself on the end of another whitewash defeat, with Graham Mullen hitting a best-leg 18-darter in the 5-0 win.

Mullen also won his second game on the night 5-0, against Murton’s Neil Mather, with winning legs of 15, 17, 19 and 21 darts.

Mather recovered from the drubbing and handed out the same scoreline to John Squire.

Spiller Henderson hit two 100 finishes, and a best leg of 17 darts, as he outgunned Ray Malarkey 5-1.

Alan Smith’s recent good form deserted him as he lost 5-1 to Anthony Gale, when both players were well below par.

Anth Skelton agonisingly missed the bull twice for maximum 170 checkouts, but still recovered from 4-2 down to draw with Eddie Ashman.

Steve Skinner produced an excellent performance to share the points with Davey Thompson, who has just received a call-up for the Durham County squad for next month’s home game against Dorset.

Skinner had two 17-darters, while Thompson’s best came in 16 and 17 darts.
