County win for darts ladies

Selfie time for the victorious Lerwick Ladies team in Kirkwall on Thursday night.

THERE were mixed fortunes for Shetland’s leading darts players in Orkney at the end of last week – with the women emerging triumphant and the men losing out in their respective inter-county clashes.

The Lerwick Ladies won a closely-fought match over their Kirkwall counterparts at the town’s Royal British Legion on Friday night. Theresa Wadley hit the double to give Lerwick a 12-9 victory.
