11 November 2019Stevie Linklater wins Davy Cooper Cup

40 players entered the Davy Cooper Memorial Darts held in the Kirkwall Masonic on Saturday.
Organised by the KDDL, it is also a fundraiser for the RNLI and Fishermen's Mission, with prizeboards, raffles and a coin push all adding to the fantastic £730 total raised on the day from generous players.
At the end of the competition, the score was Stevie Linklater 4, Brett Dickinson 0 in the final, where missed doubles made all the difference, with the seasoned campaigner Stevie, winning the cup for the third time, and retaining the trophy after winning it last year.
League president Craig Taylor thanked all who came along, donated prizes, and gave so generously throughout the event.
A cheque presentation will be made to the charities later in the season.
