DARTS: Awesome Anton seals Seaton title

Have your say

ANTON Liscey got his hands on Holbeach and District Darts League’s Wally Seaton Memorial trophy after an impressive showing at Tigers Social Club.

In what always proves a popular event, Liscey saw off regular contenders Mark Horspool and Gary Mace en route to clinching the singles title and £175 top prize.

Having beaten Shaun Shailes 3-2 in the last eight, Horspool then then defeated by the same score in the semis.

Mace beat Dave Seaton – who managed a trio of 180s – 3-0 in his last-four clash, but went down 3-1 to Liscey in the final, despite managing two maximums of his own.

In the ladies’ version, Casey Horspool beat Linda Merrison 2-1 in the final to bank £40.

The event raised an impressive £448 for charity.

• CLAIRE Ball has won the Spalding and District Darts’ League Open.

The England women’s international beat Simon Hill in a keenly-contested final, banking the £50 first prize in the process.

Losing finalist Hill consoled himself with a cool £25 for reaching the final.

Ball also defeated Kelvin Crane in the semi-final, while Paul Ford was the other to fall in the last four.

Both beaten semi-finalists trousered £10 each for their troubles.

League chairman Ian Tilley presented all of the prizes.
