Martin ‘Wolfie’ Adams carried his fine form from the international stage on to the domestic oche at the weekend when starring for Cambs.

But the winner of the Hal Open in Holland a fortnight ago couldn’t help his county to victory over Essex in the BDO Inter-Counties League Premier Division.

He won his game against Phillips Halls 4-1 with an average score of 29.70 per dart - the highest of the weekend at the March GER Club - and duly collected the men’s A team match award.

But Cambs lost the men’s A team clash 7-5 and the overall fixture 23-16.

Adams’ 13 scores of a ton or more in his five legs including one maximum, five 140s, a 136 and a 135.

Ian Withers wasn’t far behind Adams. He also won 4-1 and finished with a 29.16 average and 13 ton plus scores. He hit one 180, three 140s, a 139, a 135 and a 124 finish.

Cambs’ other match award winners were Claire Ball (women’s A), nadine Bentley (women’s B) and Tony Holland (men’s B).
