County Derry will be represented by a County Darts Team for the second successive season with two trials having been organised for prospective players.

To be known as “Area 10, North Derry,” anyone interested in darts should attend these two trials for the opportunity to make the team this season after such a successful and enjoyable first season last year.

The team last year had a tremendous year and the structures are in place more now for another successful season both for home and away games and the opportunity to throw in other darts competitions across Northern Ireland and possibly beyond.

The first trial will be held this Sunday, April 19th in The Depot, Limavady.

Registration of players in the Depot will take place from 12:30pm to 1:45pm on Sunday and the trial matches will start around 2.00 p.m.

There will be a entry fee of £5 per player on the day and this will guarantee each player six matches of 5x501 legs of darts against six different opponents for an overall average at each days trial.

Each trial will ensure that all darts players who come along on the day will get a fair share of games and the chance to put forward a good average to make the county darts squad of players.

Appeal For

Interested Players

This is an appeal for any ex-players or current players from all darts leagues or, indeed, anyone generally interested in throwing darts for their county due to its popularity in the past.

Players are more than welcome from Derry, Limavady, Dungiven, Claudy, Feeney, Eglinton, Ballykelly, Greysteel and all other surrounding areas.

The second darts trial will then take place on Saturday, September 1st in Murphy’s Bar, Dungiven and further information will follow.
