Sudbury secure an impressive away victory

Sudbury Town darts team made the long trip to face Saxmundham B in the Suffok Super League and secured a second consecutive win, winning 5-3 on the night.

Sudbury captain John Attwater made several changes to the team, with Ross Theobald, Martin Totman and Mark Theobald coming in to replace Steve Balls, Alex Topper and Jason Stalker from the team that had beaten Felixstowe the previous week.

Sudbury went behind in the first game as Dan Tatum (20.53 average) lost 3-2 to Trevor Pearse, but were level after Brett Claydon won a tight game in the deciding leg against Andy Mower, with a 24.17 average including a 180.

Sudbury moved ahead as John Attwater (16.57 ave) scrapped his way to a 3-1 win over Cliff Brown, before Gary Butcher increased Town’s lead with a 3-0 win over 
Robin Tilbrook – his 26.84 average securing him a third successive man-of-the-match award.

Martin Totman made it 4-1 with an assured performance, winning 3-0 against Sean Brown with a 23.12 average, but Darren Hadfield kept the match alive for Saxmundham, beating Sudbury’s Ross Theobald (17.07 ave) 3-0.

Ian Randles (25.47 ave) sealed the win for Sudbury with a neat 3-0 win, including a 180, over talented youngster Ryan Meikle.

David Dearing won the last game for Sax, beating Mark Theobald (19.82 ave) three legs to one, leaving Sudbury as 5-3 winners.

The halfway stage of the season is reached on Tuesday, and Sudbury face an away trip to Woodbridge – but will be back in home action the following week (December 18) against Smock Misfits in the quarter finals of the Knockout Cup.
