NEW season, same New Saracen’s Head C in Holbeach and District Darts League Division One.

The perennial title contenders have made an electric start to the campaign with a flawless five wins from five – putting them six points clear of the rest already.

Their latest victims were Sutton Bridge RBL, who succumbed to a 16-6 defeat. Pete Richardson fired a 17 dart leg, while Brian Fines managed a fine 106 checkout for the leaders.

That finish was bettered by Rick Seaton elsewhere, though.

The Five Bells C ace nailed a super 142 out as his side registered their first Division One win of the campaign.

Horse and Groom B were on the wrong end the 15-7 scoreline, with Dave Seaton and Colin Seaton both managing 17-dart legs for the winners.

In Division Two, Five Bells A kept their 100 per cent record intact with a 13-8 triumph at Legion B.

Howard Wright and Dave Clarke wrapped up the points with victories at the death.

But at the other end, New Saracen’s Head A are still searching for their first point after suffering five defeats on the trot.

They went down 13-6 at Horse and Groom A, with a 113 finish from Mark Horspool the highlight.

There was better news for Crown and Mitre in Division Three though, as they broke their duck. Tigers C were the first team to incur their wrath in an 11-6 beating, despite a 140 from Lee Ransome.

• STEVE Stancer put in a man-of-the-match display as Fenway A stayed top of the pile in Aron Moyses Spalding Town League Division One.

He arrowed a plethora of ton throws in a perfect 7-0 triumph over Hole In The Wall A, which keeps them two points clear of the rest.

Drayman’s Arms C remain hot on their heels in second, but they were pushed all the way by a friendly foe.

Fellow club side Drayman’s A led 3-1 ahead of the final three matches, but victories from Neil Glover and the teams of Dave Bourne and Ivan Forman made it 3-3.

Glover and Bob Allison then combined to take the decider, leaving the C team 4-3 winners.

Down in Division Two, Fenway B are seven clear at the summit following a 6-1 home success over Royal Mail Cart.

A super 106 checkout from G Herd was the highlight or a pretty one-sided clash.

Pete Brackenbury went two better for Draymans’ B, finishing with 109 in a 4-3 home victory over Birds A.
