Hethersett Hawks Darts Night
A pre-season social event with a difference was held at Hethersett Social Club – a darts competition run like a four-a-side cycle speedway competition. Seven teams stepped up to the oche including one team from Norwich Stars who also had Lee Grange guesting for Team Cossey. A few heats were won by scores less than 30 so ability with the arrows was not always required. Lisa Wells tried to keep a handle on the score sheets although the Hawks new team manager did not help by putting his Mum down twice on the programme and leaving his Dad off in the Consolation Final. Watch that trick on a Sunday!!!
In the end it was the Norwich quartet of Paddy Wenn, Gary Colby, Mike Marshall and David Ewbank who proved they had a mis-spent youth to win the final with ease. Kevin Wells excelled to get the lowest possible score prize with three scoring darts – 3 – and Steve Perkins earned himself a bottle of wine for his first visit to the board placing a 133 which was never surpassed as the highest score.
For the record here are the scores on the night –
Team Wells 48
Team Perkins 42
Team Nelson / Kell 36
Team Butler / Hamill /Adams 34
Team Norwich 47.5
Team Grimes / Collins / Webster 39

Highlight of the evening was the arrival of some food leftover from an earlier function at the club which the members duly obliged in helping out!!!
