The Cork Darts Organisation Premier players individual league will get underway on Friday November 4 at the Groves Lounge on Dublin Street Blackpool.
Entries for the competition will close on Tuesday November 1 and group qualifying games will be played on November 4.
Some if not all of the very best darts players in Cork have had the honour of winning this very prestigious and hard to win singles competition with the very first player to win the competition being Dinny Bob’s who won it back in 2001 when he defeated John O’Shea in the final which was played in Kennedy’s Bar on the Blarney Road.
The sixth series of games in the Cork Darts Organisation leagues were completed on Monday night last and the Joshua Tree can be very satisfied after their visit to the Groves saw them come away with a win.
Joshua Tree opened with a win through John Kennifick defeating Brendan Long and it was 2-0 to the Josh as William Goulding overcame home player Craig Bowen.
John O’Callaghan pulled a game back for the Groves with a win over Denis Madden but the remaining two games went the way of the Joshua Tree as wins by Eddie Keating and Jonathan McCormack against Steven Casey and Garry Lane respectively sealed the win.
Quinlans 2 overcame the challenge of their first team as they ran out 4-1 winners with wins from William Fouhy, Jason O’Donovan, Dylan Crean and Jack Secular while the sole win for Quinlans 1 came from Eddie Cull.
Muskerry Arms travelled away to Hennessy’s in the Cork Darts Organisation third division league and came away with all five points available on the night.
