The Bears suffered a defeat at the hands of Devon who were perilously close to a relegation back to the 1st Division. However Devon belied their lowly position and played superbly to take both of the B games and drawing the A games. Lady of the Match was Marian Conway other winner was Denise Keyte. Match award in the Mens was Carl Green who claimed it with a 0.01 better average than Matt Edgar. Ladies A took a tough and well earned point in the Ladies with Sue Gulliver taking the award. Jamie Hughes was the match award winner with a superb 32.32. Overall result being 20-16. The County still kept their position of Fourth in the BICC Premier Division.
We are losing two officials at the end of the season.
Margaret Fish is standing down as Ladies Team Manager
although will be considering staying on as a match day official.
Gill Poole is standing down as Ladies Superleague Secretary and general committee member.
The Executive are now considering possible candidates for these positions in the 2016-2017 season.
Anyone interested in either position please contact either myself or Brian Johnson.
We are also discussing possible increases in the selection panel for both Mens and Ladies.
Any person interested in becoming a selector for either once again either contact myself or Brian Johnson.
May we thank both for their efforts for the County and wish them all the very best.
Warwickshire were left to rue missed chances during the B games as they lost out by the slimmest of margins when going down at the hands of Essex by 19-17. Tough weekend was expected by all and that what we got, Ladies B took a good 3-3 draw with Angela Jones LOM 21.85. Mens B should have got a better return but a 7-5 loss with Matt Edgar MOM 27.80. Ladies A suffered a 4-2 loss with Trina Gulliver 26.37. Mens A put out a great 7-5 win with Dean Stewart again MOM with a 29.40. The Bears travel to Devon for their final fixture of the seasoon where they will be looking to consolidate their 4th place in the BICC Premier Division.
Donna Pinch and Lisa Deslandes booked their place at the National finals of the BDO Gold Cup. They defeated Caroline Pike and Wendy Adams. In the Singles Trina Gulliver and Sue Gulliver took their spots in the finals. They will go through to the Finals in July in Manchester.
Four players from the County battled their way through a tough night of darts to claim their places in the National Finals on July 2nd in Manchester for the BDO Gold Cup. The first time ever that each County can send multiple players in this event which many Counties have often enquired about. In Group one Mark Westgarth hardly put a foot wrong as he defeated Mark Strong 4-1, Jamie Hughes also commanded his board until the final where he defeated Ant Childs of Rugby who had earlier won against Mark Carter, Ian McFarlane and Tommy Ryan. Group three saw Carl Green defeat team mate Kishan Jiwa. Board Four was also a tough challenge for all but eventually Dickie Foster defeated team mate Mangal Singh. Tonight sees the Ladies hold their qualifiers whilst the mens pairs is scheduled for the 14th April.
Ian Shaw and Dean Stewart made it through from a dissapointing entry of 33 players last night in the Warwickshire Play Offs of the Winmau World Masters. They both had tough passages but survived a few scares. Shaw had to overcome Mark Carter in his Semi Final whilst Michael Spencer was the other semi finalist losing out to Stewart. They both go through to the Regional Play offs at a venue and date TBC. They will be joined in the Regional Play offs with the two highest eligible players from the final Averages List.
