Lincolnshire v Cheshire
For the penultimate match in the BICC season, Lincolnshire took the 3 hour drive to the mighty County of Cheshire, now Cheshire was 3rd in the division and have been a premier team for many years, and this weekend was always going to be a mouthwatering encounter.
We started as always with the Ladies B, and to be totally honest , this section has really' dug deep' over the past few matches, and pulled out some great wins, this weekend proved to be pivotal in our quest to stay in the premier division, the girls took 4 of the 6 points on offer and got us off to a great start, points came from Layla Bontoft, Bobbi Hughes and Julie Lambie ( on her 75th appearance for Lincolnshire), but the lady of the match this time went to Shelley Bontoft-Gash with a single dart average of 19.78.
On to the Mens B, and again we were in for some great games and managed to take 7 points out of a strong Cheshire side, wins came from Johnny Baker, Lloyd Pennell, Shane Lowe, Lee Price, Dan Whitlam and a first win in his County career for young Leighton Bennett, but wth a single dart average of 27.82, Jock Watt took the match award, and with it, promotion into Sunday's play along with Lloyd Pennell.
The B team gave us a great start to the weekend and to be fair, we were unlucky not to have taken a few more points, but hey, I'll take an 11-7 B team win any day of the week.
It has to be said, we got a disastrous start to Sunday's play, our Ladies A had, well , I think some would would call it a "mare", I say , it was a bad day at the office, and we all have them, what makes it so hard to swallow for me, is the quality of the ladies A side, and then to lose 1-5, but we will put this one down to experience and move on, we managed 1 point, i'm going to talk a little more about this particular point at the end of this write up, the ladies A match award went to Dawn Armstrong with a single dart average of 17.88.
Well what can you say about the magnificent Mens A, ( I know how to pick em!!!). Going into this final section the score line stood at 12-12 and with the Cheshire team on a roll, you would be forgiven for thinking we were facing our 4th team loss this season, but the Lincolnshire Mens A had other ideas, I witnessed some fantastic games, I mean some real " scraps" were had by most of the men and i'm pleased to say that Lincolnshire came off the victors, and we deserved it, a couple of games stood out for me, the first was Adam Beck, half way through his game, he had absolutely no Bussiness at all of winning that game, but that guy 'Dug deep" and pulled off one of the finest wins I've seen in a long time, Micky Taylor, in my option is one of Lincolnshire's "class acts", his game seems to just (fly under the radar), and before you know it, he's whipped your ass, both these guys are a pleasure to watch and captain, however, their point meant no more, or less than the other 5 guys that won. The other winners in this section came from the quality Mark Forman, Lloyd Pennell (2nd point of the weekend), Adam Ward ( another scrap), and another "Stella" performance from Karl Jon Forrington, all these men, take a bow, but there can be only 1, and it came from a guy that has literally took this season ( by the scruff of the neck), Mark Wadey Wilson blasted his way to a 4-0 win with a single dart average of 29.47.
Lincolnshire win 19-17 and in doing so have just about secured our place in the premier for another season, and I'll say again ( god I can pick a team!!!!!) lol.
Before I sum up the weekend I must go back to Dawn Armstrong's game, now it wasn't her best performance by far, however, that 1 point she got us, as far as i'm concerned, was worth 4 points this game, it was a point that came at the lowest part of the weekend, and it just may have been the most important point of the weekend, and although at the time ( i'm pulling my hair out) when we are losing points I don't believe we ought to be, on hindsight, we are so lucky to have players such as Dawn, that give their all for Lincolnshire, and by that I suppose I mean each and every one of you, and I'd just like to say , I feel truly privileged to be a part of Lincolnshire with you.
And so on to the final game of the season (Essex), and its time to make a prediction , now it's looking like our friends from Essex are going to be relegated into division 1, but just because they have had a rough season, DO NOT EXPECT AN EASY RIDE, these guys are quality, and it would be just our luck for Essex to hit form all on the final BICC weekend against us. So with all due respect, we will treat this final game of the season as if it was the first.
So as I sit here in the Spanish sunshine, it's now time for me to sign off, I hope you all enjoy reading this months "write up", and I luck forward to seeing you all next month for our final match at the Blues Club,
But for now as always
LINCOLNSHIRE, TUS CAPITANES TE SALUDAN!!!!!!!!!

The Lincolnshire Open June 12th
Once again Lincolnshire's County Darts event had arrived and with a combined total of 132 entries for the men's and ladies, in which we were thoroughly pleased with as there are always players that can't make it on the day for various reasons.
I pride myself of making sure this event runs perfect, but it's our dedicated team of committee members that make this event a success and everyone one of our committee members should be applauded for their dedication and hard work, So thank you to Des Paula Jacklin, Gordon Lambie, Jude Johnson Timothy Johnson, Rosie Pilkington, Michelle Creasey, Dean Coe and Nikki Cheavins for making the day run beautifully.
We have a great set up at our sponsors venue the Blues Club, and we cannot thank them enough for supporting us, you really are superb and thank you for your help.
We attract players from many different counties, new faces as well as our regulars, and what makes me smile is the warm welcome we always receive when ladies and gents enter the venue. And it's so nice to hear their positive comments on how we run our event.
This year I myself thought I would try out the new facebook feature were we could go live for the finals on stage. This was done through my tablet wouldn't have wanted my phone going off on the stage, I wasn't sure how this would turn out and I wasn't expecting it to be a high quality stream, but thought lets give it a go as there is nothing to lose I didn't have time to check out the lighting on the stage which unfortunately gave a bad glare on the dart board. But its something that we will try to work on if we do this again. I was pleasantly surprised as how many people actually tuned in to watch, The viewing figures are on facebook , and I for one am happy that it worked, and hopefully this is something that other counties can do for the BICC matches and the County Open events, As its free which is always a bonus.
We would like to thank every single player and spectator for coming to the Lincs Open, Your what makes it all worthwhile and we hope you will all come again next year.
This year's Mens Champion was Barry Lynn who won £1001 and the runner up Garry Thompson and the Ladies Champion was Claire Brookin who won £401 and runner up was Paula Burgess
Well done to all the finalists
The results are
garry thompson (28.69) 4-5 (28.83) barry lynn (FINAL)
paula burgess (20.57) 2-4 (23.13) claire brookin (FINAL)

LINCOLNSHIRE V ESSEX
For the final County match of the season, Lincolnshire travelled to Chelmsford to play the County of Essex, The last time we played Essex we got an 18-18 draw, however, we knew they had played very strong this season, and we were sitting in 7th position, with only a few points separating the bottom 4, and everything to play for.
I'll say right now, I will try and mention everyone in the team, but with 36 of you, its not going to be easy, so here goes'.
We get started with the ladies B, Paula had dropped into this section, firstly because, with losing the last match, she was eligible, secondly, we thought Sue's win 2 months earlier inspired the ladies to an overall win, and thirdly, it just shows character to the rest of the team, (never ask of others, what you cant do yourself). First player up, Sharon Magan, and gets us our first point of the weekend, and last lady on, Julie Lambie gets us a 3-3 draw, I think the intensity of the weekend played a huge part in Chris Vietch and Emma Tomlinson's game, with the nerves really showing, and Laura Tye was so unlucky in her game, but we will take a 3-3 draw ladies B section every month, but it was back to the second game of the day for the match award, Paula did the job she set out to do, nothing fancy, just a steady controlled 3 leg game with 100% check out rate earning her a single dart average of 20.59. Its fair to say , this section has struggled this season, Lincolnshire will find it so much easier if, this section can lift its single dart average by just 1.5 to 2 points, hitting that all important double (quicker), is the key, we will stand by you ladies, we are in it together!.
On to the men's B section, and it was perhaps the most disappointing result of the weekend, we managed just 3 points, this was a huge blow to us, although we cannot and will not take anything away from a very strong Essex side, 3 of my guys, ought to left that stage winners, however, it wasn't to be, and Essex, (quite deservedly), went on to win the entire premier division men's B section, well done Essex men. But back to our guys, and they are all there for a reason, all of them at some point or another, won for Lincolnshire in the past, winners this time round was Scott Bennett and Craig Hill, we were treated to some thrilling 7 leg games, but sadly lost all of them accept Craig's, i'm hopeful that our new 'signee' ,Mark Foreman, enjoyed his experience enough play next year!!!, and to all those that lost, it turned out that your losses just added to the drama of the weekend, as I've said before, we win as a team, we lose as a team. But there can be only one, and this match award has been a long time coming, 'step up Jonny B', a barrage of heavy scoring, plus some 'razor sharp' doubles, gave Jon Bywater a single dart average of 28.45, and the highest Lincolnshire men's winning average of the weekend.
We end Saturdays play 12-6 down, and one extremely unhappy captain lol.
Sunday morning arrives, and with it, fresh outlook, i'm thinking, lets get a good draw, and another season in the premier is still possible. A good draw was hoped for, and that's exactly what we got, so much so, that was what I based my team talk around, unfortunately, the Essex ladies played a 'blinder', and I didn't see it coming, now that's not to say I underestimated the Essex ladies, individually they are all extremely good, but they all hit it together and got 4 great points, and to be honest they were close to a perfect 6, luckily for Lincolnshire, we had Heather Lodge, who can (and has) fought for England lol, and an 'ex winmau' world master in Laura Tye, both ladies got the win, and with it 2 valuable points, but this time it was Laura who took the match award, with a single dart average of 21.98. I'm a huge fan of the ladies game, and this weekend saw 10 ladies from Essex and Lincolnshire achieve a 20+ single dart average, you put on a show for us ladies, and i'd like to thank you for that.
And so on to the final section of the weekend, and my fantastic Lincolnshire men's A, I cannot tell you how much I promote the Lincolnshire men's A, whenever I get the chance to talk about them, I do so with so much pride, they have rose to the challenge on so many occasions, I , like so many others, depend on them, and why shouldn't I?, I cannot speak about them without saying the words awesome, fantastic, as that is what they are, and today, they didn't disappoint, although , it didn't always look that way. We lost the first game, Adam Beck won us the second, Lloyd Pennell narrowly missed the 122 on the bull, losing the 3rd game with a single dart average of 29.29, we took the 2nd and 3rd point from Mark Blackwell and Craig Hill, now folks, at this point in time, i'm sat on the top table, laptop on with darts for windows on the Hampshire / Cornwall match, I pad with darts for windows on Devon / Warwickshire, and I watch Karl Forrington, Chris Fidler and Jock What, do 'not much wrong', and still lose, and to put it mildly, i'm starting to feel a little nauseous, step up Simon Stainton, from 2-0 down, Simon won 4 straight legs and got our 4th point in the section, it was then that Cornwall reached 18 points in their match, meaning, Lincolnshire needed just 1 point to stay in the Premier Division. it was the time for 'Drill Bit' to take to the stage, and I've got to say, Micky Taylor has become one of those guys, where you think, 'yep, were gonna do this', Micky kept his nerve, just as I've come to expect him to, although the game did have its moments, in fact when he was called on tops for the win, I had to look away, the room was silent, every person there knew the importance of his next 3 darts, I heard Micky's first dart hit the board ( thud), and a slight gasp, then I heard his second dart hit the board( thud), and the room erupted, WERE IN THE PREMIER AGAIN!!!.
I think the best compliment Lincolnshire can get, is when the opposing team then all come and congratulate you on staying in the Division, and that my friends, make me very proud. With no disrespect meant to either side's players, the last 2 points were 'run of the mill' for my guys, yes all 4 guys remaining wanted to win, and needed to for themselves, but it almost felt like the match had ended with Micky's point, and to be honest, that's a little disappointing, because the final 2 games from Adam Ward and Dean Baker, were just as entertaining as the 16 games before, and I for one am glad it didn't come down to a 1 game shoot out, as its been so many times in the past, never the less, both Adam and Dean won their points for Lincolnshire, and that's nothing less than I expect from them 2 men. But back to the match award, this time it went to a young guy that has only played 'treble board' for a year or so, its his first season for Lincolnshire, and his A team debut, Craig Hill impressed so much, I promoted him from the previous day's play, he got 2 points over the weekend, and took the A team match award with a single dart average 27.43. The mighty Lincolnshire men, win this section 7-5, over a very good Essex team,Lincolnshire boys, take a bow.
The final score was 21-15, and I could not be more proud.
If you ask any of Lincolnshire's team or supporters, what is the team they look forward to playing the most, the majority will say Essex, we have a fantastic time with you, be it home or away, win, lose or draw, we have great friends within Essex, and I for one cant wait till the last game of next season and I've got to say special thanks to Lynn Kelly, (and she knows why).
Lincolnshire, together we have made Lincolnshire history, never before have we made 3 consecutive years in the Premier Division, what makes me proud, is the fact that, at the start of my captaincy nearly 6 years ago, lets say, a few people were a little (sceptical) lol, but together, we have made history for Lincolnshire, we've made ground breaking decision's, and its come good, your belief in both me and Paula, makes our jobs easy, never let it be said, that any one person has done more than any other for our great county, we've done it together, and made ourselves a cutting edge Premier team, and that, is something special.
On to 2016/2017 season lets hope its as great as this ones been.
but for now, Lincolnshire, as ever YOUR CAPTAINS SALUTE YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lincolnshire v Cheshire
IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM, IF NO ONE ELSE CAN HELP, AND IF YOU CAN FIND THEN, MAYBE YOU CAN HIRE, THE A-TEAM
For the penultimate game of the BICC match, Lincolnshire hosted the mighty county of Cheshire, with both counties on level points, and only 2 spaces away from the relegation zone, there was everything to play for.
We got underway with the Ladies B, but unfortunately the Lincolnshire girls couldn't find the same quality of game they had found the previous month, managing a disappointing 1 point. This point however, came from a Lady "desperate" for a win, it may come as a shock to you the reader that this Lady has not won a county game for almost 2 full seasons, despite having the highest average on most occasions, but with an emotional and nail biting 3-2 win, Julie Lambie left the stage with a single dart average of 14.70 and the match award, onwards and upwards Ju Ju.
The Lincolnshire men's B claimed 5 of the 12 points on offer, and I have to say at this point, I feel we ought to have had 2 more points fair and square in this section, however, it's them that hit 4 doubles that claim the match, winners were, Craig Hill, Steve Hamill and Andy Bingham, before I go onto the match award, I need to speak about the Paul Kirkham v Mark Jodrill game, whilst this match was being played, it was quite obvious to all, that Mark ( Cheshire ) was in some distress, so much so that at 3-2 the match had to be stopped, it was explained to me that Mark has an ongoing condition that made it necessary to stop the game, Mark was taken outside, and after 20 or so minutes, a decision was made for mark to carry on the game, I have to say in fairness to both players, I must have been difficult for both, Mark was not the same player after the break as he was at the start of the match, but all credit to Lincolnshire's Paul Kirkham for having the resolve to hit 2 winning doubles to take the match, it was unfortunate circumstances for both players and one I'm sure neither will forget in a hurry, might I also add, I have since spoken to Mark, and he's hopeful on a full recovery, and all of Lincolnshire sends their best wishes to him. Back to the match award, and their can be only one, this time a very controlled performance was put in by the guy from Mablethorpe, Kev Tomlinson left the stage with a single dart average of 26.85, well done that man.
The scores on the doors, 12-6 in Cheshire's favour
Onto Sunday and the Ladies A, we ended this section 3-3, so I suppose a good result in this section, wins came from Dawn Armstrong and SBG, but it was last lady on that took the match award "Super Sue Edwaeds". This Lady has slipped into the Lincolnshire team with a touch of class, for me, her win was never in doubt, but with it she took the lady of the match award along with a single dart average of 22.43, and you just know there's more in the tank !!!.
We start the final section of the weekend 9-15 down, STEP UP THE MIGHTY LINCOLNSHIRE MEN!!!, I've said it before and I'll say it again, Lincolnshire has one of the finest men's A sections in the country, and have pulled of some fantastic wins in their time, but none more so needed than this one, winners were Rob Hewson, Adam Ward, Micky Taylor, Adam Beck, Simon Stainton, Joby Booth, Lloyd Pennell and Chris Fidler, each and every one of these men were absolutely fantastic, but one stood "taller" lol , than the rest Jock Watt put in one of his finest performances, taking the match award with a single dart average of 28.24, Lincolnshire men's A, "take a bow".
I have to say, for one reason or another, the county weekend has got to be one of the most memorable ones, it had everything, great darts, fantastic people and more drama than Eastenders and Corrie, and to cap it off, after a disappointing Saturday, we got a draw, I'd like to take this opportunity to wish Cheshire all the very best for their final match of the season, and I hope we both stay in the premier division so you can show us your hospitality again next season.
Lincolnshire, 19 points this weekend and a great result, but let's not kid ourselves, changes have to be made for the final match of the season, it's to close not to, and for me, there's just to much at stake, I want Lincolnshire to stay in the premier division, never before has Lincolnshire had 3 consecutive years in the premier division, let's make it a first ehh!!!
But for now, as always, Lincolnshire

LINCOLNSHIRE V CORNWALL
Ladies B - a breath of fresh air !!!!!
For the 7th game of the BICC, Lincolnshire travelled to the county of Cornwall, and for the bottom 4 / 5 teams this weekend was very important.
We started with the ladies B, and after a very brief team talk, Sue Edwards took to the stage and showed us why she had been scouted for the team, but before I elaborate, a few words about the rest of the ladies B. This has been a highly criticised section, but this weekend the ladies got it together, and claimed 4 of the 6 points on offer, wins came from, Sharon Megan, Laura Tye and Emma Tomlinson, these ladies all fought it out and got the mighty Lincolnshire off to a great start, but for the match award, we go back to that first game of the day, Sue Edwards gave the ladies inspiration by claiming Lincolnshire's first point in this section for 3 matches, and despite missing many doubles, left the stage a winner with a single dart average of 20.31. Sue has fitted straight into the Lincolnshire side and from all of the team I've Been asked to say, Sue, "welcome to Lincolnshire".
Onto the men's B, and I have to say from the start, all the men's games were of a great standard, it turned out that we won this section 7-5. The men's B have been really strong on the whole this season and have really "held their own", wins in this section came from Craig "GET A SHAVE ALREADY"Hill, John Hollins, Richard "TRICKY"Selby, Kev Tomlinson, Chris "BLOBBY" Fidler and Gary Blades, but the match award came from debutant Joby Booth, Joby played perhaps the most controlled game from a "county first timer" I have ever seen, he hit back every ton+ score with one of his own, and smashed the double with his first dart, every time, Joby left the stage, a 4-3 winner with a single dart average of 28.90, and was promoted to Sunday's play.
Lincolnshire lead Cornwall 11-7
The draw for the Ladies A, was a pretty even split, and that was proved with a 3-3 draw, points came from Tammy Montgomery and Heather lodge, both had scrappy games, but both know how to hit that winning double,and it's kept Lincolnshire in with a shout of staying in the premier division, but there can be only 1 match award, and this time it went to a lady that ain't claimed this award for a couple of seasons, but this weekend, with a flurry of huge scores right when she needed them, Dawn "DIZZY" Armstrong took the lady of the match award, with a single dart average of 22.82, it was a cracking game, well done Dawn.
And so onto the final section of the day, I said I would be happy with a 6-6 draw, and that exactly what we got, the Lincolnshire men produced the grit needed to keep us out of the relegation zone, the all important wins/ points came from Simon "LEFTY" Stainton, Dean "THE ONE AND ONLY" Baker, Adam "SCRAPPER"Ward, Micky "DRILLBIT"Taylor and a second point of the weekend from Joby Booth, I will say right now for those that were not there to see Joby's game, he was fantastic, not the highest of averages, but it had everything, and for me, was the most entertaining game of the day, well done that man, but for the highly prestigious men's A match award, we have to go back to the second game of the day, no stranger to this award, Chris "BLOBBY" Fidler took the match a 4-1 winner with a single dart average 28.81.
On the whole, a fantastic winning weekend for Lincolnshire, the darts was great, the company even better, we got chance to catch up with our Cornish friends, and made more friends on top, I'd like to thank Cornwall for their hospitality this weekend, and best of luck for the final 2 games of the season.
And so Lincolnshire, we are now into 7th position with just Cheshire and Essex left to play, with what I've seen this weekend, I know we can make history, and stay in the premier division for 3 consecutive seasons, we have the team to do it, and I believe now WE HAVE THE MORAL, it's been a pleasure to captain you fantastic lot this weekend, but for now, as ever, one final thing left to say,,,,
LINCOLNSHIRE , YOUR CAPTAINS SALUTE YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Attention, there will be 4 men and 2 ladies go through to the Gold Cup singles finals, and 1 ladies pair 2mens pairs, this was decided by the BDO board.
Lincolnshire haven't had a meeting yet to decide how we will play it, but I'm presuming it will be the same as we always do, meaning, we play down to a winner in both men's and ladies , but both winner and runner up in ladies singles and men's pairs will go to the finals, and all semi finalist in the men's singles will go on to the national finals.
1 x ladies pairs
2 x ladies singles
2 x men's pairs
4 x men's singles
Finals held 2nd July in Manchester not lakeside like previous years.

For the 6th game of the BICC County season, Lincolnshire took on the mighty county of Devon
We started as usual with the Ladies B, and unfortunately, this section didn't get the start that Lincolnshire was hoping for, this was due mainly to a strong Devon side, there was a few positives to take from the games played , but ultimately, we didn't manage to get a point, lessons to learn!.
Onto the men's B, and we managed a 6-6 draw, points in this section came from Kev Tomlinson, Jon Bywater, Chris Fidler, Steve Hamill, and another "Stella" performance from Martin Bell, but the match award, with a blistering 32.32 single dart average was "Prince Charming" himself, Karl Forrington. A great draw from the men's B section, and we was unlucky not to get 2 more points, but on the whole, a solid performance.
Over night we are 12-6 in the red
Onto Sunday's games, and not the best draw for the Ladies A, we managed 2 points, not surprising though when you see the Devon side, they have a couple of "stand out" players, but on the whole, one of the strongest teams in the Country with no easy games, heather Connerton got Lincolnshire's First Ladies point of the weekend in what can only be described as a "nightmare" game, but scrapped her way to the win, the only other point took the match award, Paula"KICKASS"Jacklin left the stage with a single dart average of 22.46, well done to the Mrs on this one, an expected point carries so much pressure.
And finally we come onto the men's A section, and I'll say it right now, Lincolnshire men's A "TAKE A BLEEDING BOW" you were simply fantastic, even Devon said how great you were, we lost the first point, this saw a 17-8 score line in Devon's favour, "UNLEASH THAT CAN OF WHOOPASS" lol, points came thick and fast, here's the winners, Adam " THE. SCRAPPER"Ward, Simon Stainton,Mark Blackwell,Jock "THE COP" Watt, Karl Forrington, Rob Hewson, Micky Taylor and Adam " BLUE STEEL" Beck, a great winning men's A weekend. With the final game to play, Devon had the all important 18th point, the weekend came down to 1 final game, and it has to be said, (both men, both great players, both overcome by nerves), and who cud blame them, in the end, Lincolnshire lose 17-19, but deserved winners Devon take the 3 bonus points. But back to the match award, and when this guy makes a come back, he don't do it in half measures, I say come back, it may have gone unnoticed to some, but this guy has lost a couple of games of late, but not content with just a win and a County point, this man takes the match award too, part of the Lincolnshire team " back bone ", Dean " THE ONE AND ONLY" Baker left the stage with a single dart average of 27.66, well done that man and welcome back !
I cannot remember a better weekend of darts, the Devon players were absolutely fantastic and a credit to the sport, every game was played in great spirits, and it feels good when you know that Devon feels the same, and on behalf of Lincolnshire, I'd like to take this opportunity to wish Devon, all the very best for the remainder of the year.
I really hope that we stay in premier this season, if for no other reason than to travel to Devon, to give them the chance to return the hospitality, this was a similar feeling I had last year with Essex, and we got them in 2 months.
And so, only 3 matches left to play, and miraculously we go up a place in the division, ( out of the relegation zone) , it would be fair to say that this season has not gone in the way I had hoped it would, however, I'm experiencing it with a great bunch of people, my Lincolnshire friends, and friends we are all making at other counties.
It was a loss this weekend Lincolnshire, but I've never meant the following more.
Lincolnshire,,,, YOUR CAPTAINS SALUTE YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lincolnshire County Darts are proud to announce, that it will now offer sponsorship to all, and any of its County players including reserves, to participate in the BDO tour, this will include UK and international events.
Lincolnshire County Darts believe, we are the first, and only County to offer sponsorship of this type, to its County players, the idea comes from a belief and confidence in its players.
Lincolnshire County Darts find itself in a very lucrative position, this is due (in part), to an excellent sponsorship deal, and fantastic management, but also from the support given by everyone involved the mighty premier division team.
Lincolnshire County Darts has decided after an executive committee meeting, to invest in its players, the deal that has been offered, will enable many players to attend both national and international events, that they would otherwise not be able to participate in.
This means that not only do Lincolnshire County players, have all County away matches paid for, but now, all tour events paid too.
I myself, am very excited and pleased in the direction that Lincolnshire County Darts is heading, and wish all the very best of luck to all who take advantage of out generous offer.
Lincolnshire, as always
WE SALUTE YOU!!!!!!!!!
