League darts took a back seat in last week’s Innes Bar Inverness Winter Darts League action for the triples competition that was held at SoBar.

This was the 46th staging of the event played in memory of a former association chairman John Price.

As in common with every competition this season, it had not been played for two years due to the impact of the pandemic on all sporting competitions.

The first semi-final saw the Seaforth Club from Nairn, in their first season in Inverness darts get the better of the Muir of Ord outfit Tarradale who were runners-up in the final the last time the competition was held.

They would be joined in the final by the reigning champions, Innes Bar C, who took out a mixed triple with players from Portland A, Raigmore and Smithton.

But in the final it was debutantes, Seaforth Club, who stopped the Innes Bar from making it two in-a-row and took their first piece of silverware back to Nairn.

Representing the Seaforth Club were Phil Keen, Michael Maclean and Kenny Maclean to win the competition for the first time.

Their opponents in the final were Sandy Morrison, Derek Maclean and George Main from Innes Bar C.

On their way to winning the competition Seaforth Club also defeated Seaforth 3 in the first round, Terrible Twins in the last 16 before defeating the Highland Bauldys in the quarter finals, before winning their semi final and final clashes.

Knockout competitions continue to take precedent wit the opening round of the Inverness Supreme Cup takes place on Thursday with fixtures taking place at multiple venues throughout the city.

Highland travel to Fife on Saturday in their opening match in the Scottish Darts A ssociation County Championship.
