After a closely fought final, Charles Robertson claimed the top prize in the Alex McKerral Trophy singles charity darts competition.

Played in the Argyll Arms Hotel, Southend, on Monday night, the semi-finals saw Charles up against Stephen Jordan, while Gavin McLachlan contested Jamie McGougan.

Charles and Gavin made it to the dramatic final after two tight matches, with Gavin storming into a 3-0 lead, only for Charles to come back to make it 3-3, then take the deciding leg to win the trophy.

A spokesperson said: ‘The final was a fantastic match to watch with both players high scoring and high finishing, there was also some great games in the early rounds, Stephen Jordan hit a 12 dart leg which included a 180 and a 154 finish, Charles Robertson 180 and Gavin McLachlan 100 finish.

‘Thanks to Malcolm and Lynn Maguire of the Argyll Hotel for donating the bottle prizes.’

£72 was raised on the night which will be donated to Macmillan Nurses.
