LEADERS Timperley Cons won a close contest 4-3 against Central Club on Monday in the Altrincham and Sale Round the Board Darts League.

It went down to a deciding leg where Cons' Andy Brownhill was first to hit the bull.

Elsewhere, Brooklands Tap had a fantastic 5-2 win against a strong Gardeners B team.

Budenburgs played British Rail in another close-fought match, which the reigning champions won 4-3.

In-form Cringlewood also had a great 6-1 win against Station Altrincham.

Timp Cons are pulling away at the top but there are four teams close on their tail and with nine games left in the season there is plenty of time for changes at the top and at the bottom of the league.
