Wes Newton 6-6 John Walton
John 'Boy' Walton picked up his first point of the Remote Darts League as he secured a battling draw with Wes Newton in the Monday night opener. A topsy-turvy match saw both players lead at various points in the 12 leg encounter. Finishing let both Newton and Walton down and neither player walked away from the board brimming with satisfaction.
Paul Hogan 7-5 Dean Winstanley
These two faced each other for the first time at the oche on Monday night and it was Paul Hogan who picked up the points with a 7-5 win. Winstanley has struggled so far in this competition but showed flashes of old self in the early part of the match as he captured leads of 2-1 and 3-2. Overall though, Hogan deserved the points as his scoring caught the eye as well as a 121 checkout.
Darryl Fitton 7-3 Alan Norris
Stockport man Darryl Fitton produced a comfortable win on Monday against Daryl Fitton as he consolidated his place in the Top 4 of the Remote Darts League. Fitton took seven of the last nine legs in the match to secure the points as Norris's opening leg win was the only time he was headed. A 128 checkout for Fitton in the third leg sowed the seeds for his impressive win. Rustiness looked to play a part in the West Country man's defeat and it may be that he gets better as the tournament progresses.
James Richardson 7-2 Gary Robson
James Richardson's impressive start to the Remote Darts League continued on Monday night as he beat Gary Robson 7-2. Top of the tournament averages heading into this match, Richardson reeled off six straight legs to come back from 2-1 down to clinch a fine win. In truth, Robson put up a better fight than the scoreline suggest but Richardson's finishing was clinical and it made all the difference here.
Jim Williams 7-2 Tony O'Shea
Three wins out of three for Jim Williams as he proved too strong for the veteran Tony O'Shea on Monday night. Tournament fav Williams cruised into a 5-0 lead as he forged a relentless path to the finish line but a couple of late legs for O'Shea saw him escape the whitewash. Williams looks to be comfortable with the format and deserves his place at the top of the table.
