Stanger retains KDDL league singles

KDDL president Craig Taylor presents the league singles trophy to Robbie Stanger, who beat Stevie Linklater in the final.

The final ranking points competition of the year took place in the Masonic Club in Kirkwall when the prestigious KDDL League Singles took place.
By semi-final stage Stevie Linklater overcame Leigh Shearer, while young Steven Low's great run in the competition came to an end when defending champion Robbie Stanger proved to strong for him.
Robbie then convincingly retained the title he won the year before by beating Stevie Linklater 5-2 in the final.
