DUE to Burnley not participating this year, the Pendle Masters Darts Final at David Street became the Grand Final.

The first round saw Jack Mansfield defeat team mate Aidy Kelly 3-1, throwing a 115 check.

Next up, team mates Simon Spencer and Garry Gerrard clashed, with Simon winning 3-1.

David Street’s Tony Clarke saw off Trawden’s Stuart Routledge, and Crown A teamer Gary Hooper defeated Steph Leatham of the Stratagy.

The first semi-final pitched Clarke against Hooper, with the former winning 3-0, before Spencer defeated Mansfield 3-2.

In the final, Clarke went into a 2-0 lead, and Spencer pulled one leg back before Clarke took the fourth to claim to Masters title.
