Darts Corner SDA County Darts Championship – 20th November 2021


After the opening two weekends in the Darts Corner SDA County Darts Championship its all too familiar in the North Section as Grampian top all three leagues.


They lead the Men’s league by 5 points with Fife second on 17 and Angus in third spot with 10.


Grampian’s 11 points is four ahead of both Angus and Fife in the Ladies league.


This guarantees Grampian the lead in the Overall Table with 33 points ahead of Fife in second with 24 and third placed Angus on 17.


In the South Section its much more open with East Stirlingshire out in front with 11 points in the Mens Section but Greater Glasgow just behind on 10 points with that match still to finish.


Renfrewshire control the Ladies Section with 7 points leaving Ayrshire and Greater Glasgow both on 3 points, but again there is an unfinished match.


The Overall Table looks like it could go to the wire, even at this early stage as the top three teams are only separated by one point. Greater Glasgow lead on 13 points just one ahead of both East Stirlingshire and Renfrewshire.
