Full steam ahead for Roffey against The Railway

The top two in both divisions of the Horsham & District Darts League clashed last week, as competition for places heats up.

There were 180s for the visitors’ Dan Waller and Tony Peters.

Elsewhere in the division, bottom side Kings Arms, Billingshurst were beaten 6-3 at home by The Windmill.

In Division 2, it was another top two clash, leaders Roffey S&SC C went to Kings Arms, Horsham, who avenged last week’s cup defeat by wining 5-4, aided by a Karl Lucas 180, while Roffey S&SC A had a fine 6-3 win over Rising Sun Alliance to stay in third place.

Steve Hindle’s 108 out shot was the highlight of Horsham S&CC’s visit to HFC@The Norfolk as they came away with a 5-4 win.

Roffey CC also won 5-4, at The Rising Sun, and Nick Dunn won again to remain the only player in either division to have played in and won every singles game.
