Ian Jolly wins Fishies Open

editorial image

THE FISHIES Open was played on Saturday in the Fishermans Inn, Arbroath.

After a full afternoon of darts the final was contested by Allan Begg and Ian Jolly. Allan had the better of Ian in the early exchanges but his opponent’s experience and consistency proved to be the key and Ian won the match 4-3. Allan had chances to take the match but failed to capitalise.

Amanda Smith of Total Darts Promotions was commended by several players for her organisation and the smooth running of the competition. Thanks were extended to Bev and all the staff at the Fishermans for a great day of hospitality.
