A quality local singles darts league has been suspended because of the crisis situation and it is now extremely doubtful that the season will be completed.

When the coronavirus put a stop to most sporting events the Premier League and Division One in the Cardigan RFC League were closely-fought and titles up for grabs.

The Premier consists of players over a wide area, including Professional Darts Corporation (PDC) stars Jamie Lewis, who now lives in Carmarthen and Justin Smith of Cilgerran who are joint leaders while Steve Kinsella is in the vanguard in Division Two.

As well as outstanding games in the league, which started in September last year and is scheduled to end on April 29, there are the doubles seeded on May 6, finals night on May 13, Grand Slam last 16 a week later, Grand Slam quarter-final on May 27 with the semi-finals and final on June 3.

When the event was known as Hope & Anchor Singles League another PDC leading light Jonny Clayton of Pontyberem was a regular competitor but has since withdrawn.

In that time James Bevan, who competes in the Carmarthen & District Darts League caused a sensation by achieving a magical 9-darter (T20, T20, T20; T20, T20, T20; T20, T19, D12).

It is the only time to happen in the area although former Welsh international and British Darts Organisation (BDO) player Mark ‘Chalkie’ Lewis (Jamie’s father) very nearly did the trick twice but missed double 12 on both occasions.
