Chequers took over at the top of the Ridley League with a 12-3 win at defending champions Chelmsford Black Bull.

The Felsted team showed their all-round strength and took the first four darts singles.

Del Kochan led a fightback in vain for the hosts, as Chequers capped a fine night with a 6-0 whitewash in the dominoes.

Compasses moved up to second as a dommies whitewash helped them overturn their home clash with the Dog & Partridge.

Mick Cain’s team took the main darts 6-1, but didn’t win another point as Compasses’ Dan Taylor hit a 180 and team-mate Chris Cook a 171.
