An open darts tournament was held at Gunnings Bar, Neyland, last week with some excellent darts thrown.

In the first game, ex-welsh international Marshall James from Llanelli showed he could still play and had two 12 dart finishes and a 161 outshot to beat Andrew Sinnett 4-0. Rhys Davies from Crymych beat Jeremy Evans from the Legionnaire 4-1 and Shane King beat Gareth Starling, Trafalgar, 4-1.

In the quarter finals Marshall had a tough battle with Rhys Davies but won 5-3. Shane King had a 15 darter in his game with Llew Bevan and won 5-2. Robert Hughes (Trafalgar) had another nail-biter with fellow Trafalgar player Steve Mcdermott to win 5-4 and a 13-year-old from Wisemans Bridge Kian Davies beat Alan Dark 5-3.

In the semi-finals Marshall beat Shane King 6-2 and Robert Hughes beat Kian, who is undoubtedly one to watch in the future, 6-0.

The final was a classic with two ex-internationals and both proved that they could still play top quality darts. Indeed, Malcolm Hawkins said afterwards both of them could 'still be playing for Wales'.

There were four 15 dart, two 13 dart and a 16 dart finish between the pair of them with Robert eventually coming out on top 8-3 to win the £200 prize. Marshall took the runner up prize of £100 and the highest out (161) and the quickest legs with two 12 darters to add another £40 to his prize money.

Shane King and Kian Davies both had £30 each as semi-finalists. Landlord Mike Gunnings was thanked for his sponsorship, as was Malcolm Hawkins for running the tournament.
