Friday night will see the inaugural Mailey’s Cup winner crowned with host bar, Mailey’s, battling it out alongside The Cosh, Brandywell and Carraig for the Estate Services Friday Night Darts League’s most recent addition to the trophy cabinet.
Mailey’s go into finals night as strongly fancied favourites of the semi-finalists following last month’s great cup run but it is far from clear cut.
The Cosh defeated Phoenix after they had seen off the challenge of Mary Bs while Tracey’s Bar accounted for Fairview after the last game in a seven game thriller only to lose the play-off with Carraig at the end of the night.
Mailey’s defeated George’s and Brandywell saw off the Oak in the Phoenix Bar to make the last four.
