THE OAK Arrows’ recent domination of the Jackie Clifford Cup continued last Friday night in Phoenix Bar as they retained the trophy with victory over the host club.
The Oakgrove Bar based club defeated Phoenix by four games to one in the final after seeing off the challenge of Bog Inn in the semi-finals.
Phoenix had earlier produced the shock of the evening when defeating one of the pre-tournament favourites, Mailey’s in their semi-final match.
And the Estate Services (Iona) Friday Night Darts League Committee would like to congratulate the Arrows on their victory and thank the Phoenix Bar for their sponsorship of the final.
