Standard high at memorial event

The annual Derek Finch Memorial Pairs competition was won by Sudbury pair Andy Lawrence and Jason Stalker after an excellent evening of darts at the Northcroft Social Club.

The Jennings Racing sponsored event was very well attended, raising £215 for the Upbeat Heart Support Group.

Lawrence and Stalker, who play together for the Horse and Groom, played well throughout, before defeating defending champions Richard Watson and Nicky Wright from Haverhill 3-0 in the final.

The standard of darts was high, with several Suffolk and Cambridgeshire county players involved and both pairs faced tough opposition.

The losing semi-finalists were Dan Tatum and Ross Theobald, and Colin Hynard and Geoff Parmenter.

Organiser Ian Randles thanked all players and sponsors who helped raise money, with a special mention to a large donation from the Sudbury Charity Darts League.
