Shincliffe darts team hit the bullseye
A PUB darts team has won a national competition.
The team from The Avenue Inn, High Shincliffe, near Durham, won the Punch Darts Classic at Blackpool’s Winter Gardens last weekend.
The eight-strong squad, who also won the contest in 2011, picked up £3,000, trophies and the chance to play against a professional darts player at the PDC World Match-Play Championship.
Team captain Paddy Lenagh said: “It’s great for the team to regain the title.
“I’m really proud, the team are very passionate about the sport and they deserve the win.
“Darts is hugely popular in the pub and we have a lot of support. We have been playing together for five seasons now and they are a great set of lads who are getting better every year.”
The competition featured 32 teams from Punch pubs across the country.
