The Craigavon District Darts League returned to action this week and it was cup specialists Eire Og who stood out in week one.
They defeated the Trojans by 8 games to nil and did so without dropping a leg and they still have players such as Sam Frazer and Noel Dunwoodie to call upon in the coming weeks and this could be the season they make a real charge for the title.
Drumgor also showed they are determined to win back the league title which they won in 2012 and 2013 when they had a comfortable 7-1 win over the INF with Terry Morrow being the only victor for the INF.
Reigning champions Vintage had to dig deep for a hard fought 5-3 win over the Stables who are looking back at what could have been had they not missed their doubles.
In the final match of the night the Celtic club had a 6-2 win over Clann Eireann who this season believe they have a good chance of getting that much sought after win they desire sooner rather than later.
