Oh wow, what an awful match this was! With averages in the mid-30s and darts per legs running into the 60s this was a tough one to play, and this morning my legs and back are killing me.

Scoring, on the whole, was pretty good for us both, but there were a lot of 7, 11 and 26s mixed in with the good scores too.

And finishing?!

Least said, soonest mended, that’s what I always say.

I think this was my last match of the season, as I am sure I have a bye next week, and hopes of the other two no shows actually showing have been squashed.

I was kinda dreading this match, against the top of the league player and had an awful few days practising. Didn’t start particularly well either, but did have one or two darts at a double in the first three legs. I played an absolute blinder to win the fifth leg to salvage some pride, but my opponent was far too strong for me and took the match on his throw, 5-1.

Posted some of my best numbers too in this match. I’ve not been playing that badly to be fair, and my average is slowly climbing up into the high 40s. I just need to be able to practice for longer periods without my back hurting. I’m feeling okay after today’s match, so fingers crossed!

I think I may have intended these to be a weekly thing, but my back hurts due to my hernia and I just can’t stand standing at the oche for any amount of time, which is incredibly frustrating.

I had darts at doubles in all three legs, so should have won really, but there we go.

Two no shows for the last two matches, although we have flexibility when we play I’m not spending too much time chasing them for a game when there’s no response at all.

This evening started okay, held my throw in 30 darts to win the opening leg and had chances to win the next two too.

And then it fell apart. I remember plenty of 7s and 11s, sometimes a 30!

Halfway through the sixth leg, I remembered I had been practising following through fully with palm down and pointing straight at the 20 and realised I had stopped doing this completely. Things got a little better after that but the damage was done and my opponent rightly won 5-1.
