Leek and District Darts League

LEAGUE newcomers Horseshoe Inn (Longnor) followed up their previous week's victory by giving Elmos a lesson in the league cup.

Benks II, with the addition of Martin Emery, look a force to be reckoned with in Division Two.

The lads from Buxton, Ball Haye Tavern II, eased through their tie with Benks I, but Butchers Arms had a much tighter afair, narrowly beating a decent Blue Mugge II. Of the other ties, the main upsets were Central's amazing win at First Division Snooker Club I and Pride of the Moorlands knock out Division Two's Stafford Arms.
