The Joshua Tree will this coming Friday night March 22 stage the Cork Darts Organisation men’s Cork city individual championship and with the draw made all entrants must be present at the venue no later than 8.15pm for an 8.30 start.
A great night of darts is expected at the Joshua Tree with all of the top players having entered into the event, Ciarán Teehan who only last week played over in Wigan in the PDC development tour which is designed for all darts players between the age of 16 to 23 now finds himself at number 10 on the PDC development order of merit after having a marvellous weekend in which he improved with each competition, having finished in last 32, last 16 and a semifinal appearance will now strive to add this most prestigious local title to his burgeoning CV
Any player who is not present when called to play will immediately be scratched from the championship and no excuses of any type will be accepted, this competition rule will be strictly enforced on Friday night at the Joshua Tree.
There was a full series of matches played across all four divisions in the Fosters sponsored trophies after the recent break for the finals played in the Fosters cups were completed on Monday night last.
Tower Bar were the hosts as they welcomed the Joshua Tree first team squad to their premises for the opening clash in the Fosters Crean and McGarry super trophy with memories fresh from their recent meeting in which the Tower inflicted a 6-1 pasting of the Blarney Street outfit.
Matters however were reversed in this encounter when it was the away side who came out best as they took full revenge for that recent defeat with a 6-1 scoreline in their favour.
Tower did take the first game as Neilus O’Mahony got the better of Eddy Keating over three legs but the remaining six all went to the Joshua Tree as Darragh O’Neill, William Goulding, John Kennifick, Jason Galway, Sean Downey and Damien O’Driscoll all impressed.
Groves who claimed the Fosters super cup only very recently by virtue of their win over the Riverstown Inn were brought back a little on Monday night as they fell by 4-3 away to the Maple Leaf.
The first four games here were shared with Jerry Coughlan and Dean Meighan winning for the Groves and Gerry Horgan and Conor Hughes taking points for the Maple Leaf.
Pat O’Mahony and Frank Bowdren had the Maple Leaf 4-2 in front as they each won but Robert O’Donovan earned a further point for the Groves as he took the final game for a 4-3 loss on their own board.
Top of the Hill proved to be better by a 5-2 scoreline at home against the Local with wins coming from Stephen Sheehan, Chris O’Rourke, Kyle Hosford, Pierce Carmody and Stephen Keating with wins for the Local coming from Aaron Walsh and Eric O’Donoghue.
