An away game against Lincolnshire was Warwickshire’s latest fixture in the Premier Division of the BDO Inter County Championships and it turned out to be one they will quickly want to forget. Prior to the fixture Lincolnshire were languishing at the foot of the table on 42 points with their opponents some twelve points and four places to the good, a win not out of the question for Warwickshire, but sadly the year ended on somewhat of a sour note as they went down 21-15.

The weekend began well with both the ‘B’ teams winning, the ladies chalking up their best win of the season so far 5-1 with Melanie Jones (21.82) their lady of the match. The men’s ‘B’ side recorded their first win in four a 7-5 result with Tom Ryan (27.14) their top man.

Sunday was a different story with both of the ‘A’ teams losing heavily, Natalie Gilbert (20.59) the sole winner in the ladies 5-1 demise while man of the match Jamie Hughes (27.34) and Dean Stewart were the only two winners in a 10-2 reversal for the men.
