The Gareth Evans Memorial Cup, which boasts the biggest independent payout for an amateur darts competition in the area, took place at the Hammer in Hand pub in Garston on Saturday, June 25.

The competition, which has been running for five and a half years, honours Gareth Evans, who was a bartender at the Hammer in Hand before his untimely death, aged just 38.

Paul Jeffrey, the landlord, said: “Gareth was a big figure around here, he was very popular.”

Sixteen contenders battled it out for the trophy and the £200 prize money over seven hours of quality darts.

Jeffrey said: “It was a cracking day. Thanks to everyone that took time out to come and play, you make it a great day of darts every time.”

Richard Chamberlain, who plays out of Harrow, bested Sean Ryder in the final over nine legs. The runner-up took home a cash prize of £75, with third and fourth receiving £50 and £25 respectively.
