GWENT travelled to Redditch to take on a good Worcestershire team in Division Two of the British Inter County Darts Championship, writes Morgan Barrell.

The Gwent Women's B team all played well once again as they triumphed 4-2 over their opponents, with former Wales youth international Jessica Bonner earning the ladies player of the match award following her outstanding display.

Wins also came for Brynmawr duo Rachel Parnell and Jackie Norman as well as Megan Vodden.

The ladies result gave a strong Men's B team momentum and they duly followed this up and thumped the home team 9-3.

Scott Ridler, the third generation of the well known Ridler family to represent the county, won on debut with Stephen Cake, Dave Skinner, Paul Linwood and Alan Walker, on his 50th birthday, all providing stand out performances as Gwent led 13-5 overnight.

On the Sunday, the home team came out firing with the strong Worcestershire Women's A showing their class and experience as they won 5-1 with Rhian Griffiths claiming the only Gwent point.

The score didn't reflect on the performance as missed doubles proved costly, but Gwent's lead was reduced to 15-10.

Despite the Men's A missing team captain Nick Kenny, who was away claiming Gold at the WDF World Cup in Romania, they shone once again to triumph 8-4.

Aberbargoed's Chris Jones, on his return to the A team after a couple of years away, threw unbelievable darts in his 4-1 win (31.58 average) to lead his county to an outstanding overall 21-15 victory.

Averages of over 30 also came from Ryan Palmer and Jon Worsley, as Gwent top the table after round two.

Next up for the County is a home fixture at the beginning of November against a talented Surrey side, containing a number of top players in the BDO.

Meanwhile, Super League pace-setters Chepstow FC extended their lead to five points following victory at the Tredegar Cons, while defending champions Pontnewydd dashed Gilfach's title hopes as they came away with a handsome 6-1 win.

Aberbargoed's Alec Small continued his recent form with a 30 average as he lead his side to a narrow 4-3 win at home to Chepstow, while wins also came for third-placed Baneswell, Crumlin Rugby, Abergavenny and Cross Keys.

Golddiggers still remain top ahead of Cwmbran Rugby and Brynmawr, who both have games in hand in the Ladies Super League.

Crumlin's Michelle Mellish side proved too strong for Garndiffaith as they won 7-0 while Cheryl Jones led Cwmbran Rugby to a convincing 6-1 win versus Top Club Risca.
