BEN MARLEY came back from the brink to defeat team-mate Andy Whiteley and take the Tuesday Double In Double Out Division One darts singles knockout crown.

A total of 57 players took part in the two division action at the Newtown Social Club.

While numbers were limited in the division one contest, the action was very competitive with lots of high scoring registered.

The final saw The Legends’ team mates Marley and Whiteley against each other.

Both scored well in the first leg, but it was Marley who hit double top to take the opener. He followed that up with victory in leg two too.

But then Whiteley hit back, taking the next two to take it to a decider. Whiteley took charge of leg five with shots of a ton, 82 and 78 leaving just 40. But he missed three darts at double top and Marley stepped up to hit 20, 16 and double 16 for a 68 out-shot, taking the match win and the Division One Singles Champion title.

Division Two also saw team mates play each other with Chi Snooker Club’s Alex Norgett and Keith Robinson facing off.

Despite failing to hit his in-shot for two throws, Robinson took the first leg with a 108 out shot. His good form then flowed the next two rounds.Norgett missed his chance with 66 left to let his opponent take the leg with one dart at double 4. Then he completed a comfortable 3-0 win with a 17-dart leg to take the division two title.
