Wingate siblings win darts doubles crown

CHRISTMAS is full of cheer in the Wingate household after father and son Dave and Karl, pictured top right, won the Friday Benevolent Darts League Division Two pairs final.


In what was an evening of intense competition between 44 players, three trophies were handed out.


The Division Three final saw 12 teams whittled down to Steve & Dan Middleton (Newtown C) against Wayne Green & Jack Danahar (Pagham CC). The Pagham pair made the stronger start, and didn’t let up until double-top was hit by Green, giving himself and Danahar the title of Division 3 Pairs champions.


The Division Two final saw Graham Crawley & Stuart Gray (QE2 Galleon) face off against the Wingates (Friary D).


After the opening two legs were split, the Wingates took control of the decider with a ton and 95 between them. Karl Wingate then hit double 3, making himself and his dad the Division Two Pairs champions.


Division One saw 20 teams take part, the second highest turnout on record, with Richard Ragless & Nick Wyatt (Friary Z) taking on Lee Franklin & Micky Rowland (Friary Z), pictured bottom right, in the final. After some strong scoring, both sides took one leg apiece.


The last leg saw a slower start, but Franklin & Rowland took the bull by the horns and forged into the lead. It was left to Rowland to hit double 10 to take the leg, match and Division 1 Pairs champions title.
