Saturday saw 17 players compete in the SDA double start singles competition in the Lerwick Legion. The 1st round saw players compete on 4 round robin boards with the top 2 players from each board progressing to the quarter finals.

The quarter finals saw Stuart Paul beat David Thomson 3-0, Gareth MacRitchie beat Gary Devaney 3-0, Barry Couper beat Hazel Bruce 3-0 and Neal Redfern defeat Gareth Pottinger 3-0.

The semi finals were played over the best of 5legs and both saw 3-0 victories for Stuart Paul over Barry Couper and for Neal Redfern against Gareth MacRitchie.

The best of 7 leg final was played to a high standard with the first 4 legs being shared by the 2 players with neither player being able to break their opponents throw. Neal then took a 3-2 lead in the 5th leg hitting a timely 180(his 2nd of the final) then checking out in his next throw before going to claim victory in then next to emerge a 4-2 winner.

During the nights play there were 180s recorded from Neal Redfern (3), Stuart Paul (2), Barry Couper (2) & Gary Devaney. Gary also checked out 109.

Thanks goes to the Lerwick legion for hosting the event.
