The quality of darts was high with Smith hitting seven perfect darts at one point only to see the eighth wire treble 19 as he narrowly missed out a perfect nine-dart leg.

Just shy of 60 entrants took part with a separate ladies competition taking place this year, won by Jo Clements who beat Kaz Kirby in an exciting final.
