Colchester 4 Harwich 8 (23/09/10)

Harwich 4 Southend 8 (19/09/10)
Harwich started their home games at the Royal with a disappointing defeat at the hands of Southend. Southend were pleased with the new venue and shocked by the large crowd of support, something other teams do not get and will have to come to terms with.
Harwich pride themselves in being run professional but Southend topped that when they pulled up in a stretch limousine.
Scot Lawrie (24.14) and Peter Barton (26.00) made the perfect start in beating Paul Marsh (25.48) and Matthew Waddoups (19.00) in the opening pairs.

Kevin Edwards (20.52) and Nick Groves (25.19) won a scrappy against Steve Maish (25.08) and Steve Haggerty (18.10).

Nick Groves (22.74) was an unlucky loser to Paul Marsh (22.09), Groves went 2 - 0 up only to missed doubles in the next 3 legs whilst Marsh showed the fighting spirit that has seen him force his way into the county squad.
Peter Barton (23.04) was 2 - 1 up only to run out of steam against the heavy scoring Paul Barham (24.70) and lose 3 - 2. Young Barham hit 2 x 180's to show he will be a great asset to the county team.
Wayne Mardle (27.67) will have to polish up his finishing as each time he missed his doubles Steve Haggerty (25.25) hit his, including a 104 finsh.
Kevin Cook (20.74) and Steve Maish (22.62) never got going in a poor match and once again it was the Harwich player who went in front only to lose.
Adrian Genery (19.94) lost 3 - 2 to Richard Watering in another poor game for Genery, a player who was once a regular for the county A team but seems completely at a loss now.
Mr. Reliable Kevin Edwards (26.01) had to be at his best to beat Graeme Mills (24.57) 3 - 1 as Mills missed his chance to go 2 - 0 up.
Marcus Smith (20.48) was completely overpowered by Stephen Kiamil (24.64) who romped to a 3 - 0 win.
Last but no means least was a game that has to be an early contender for match of the season, Scot Lawrie (29.24) beating Matthew Waddoups (30.66) 3 - 2. Lawrie took legs 1 and 2 in 16 darts each leg only for Waddoups to hit back with winning legs of 16 and 13 darts.

Alan Colllins (22.56) and Kevin Cook (29.83) lost the opening pairs to Robbie Turner (26.67) and Martin Compton (28.94) in a tight game that saw Compton take out 106 on the bull for the game.

Wayne Mardle (27.01) was given a baptism of fire as he had to face old adversary Barry Adlam (24.24). Mardle won 3 - 1 as for once the Riverside stalwart failed to fire on all cylinders.
Kevin Cook (20.40) beat former England youth player James Jennings (21.14) 3 - 1 in a poor game.
Adrian Genery (19.93) seems to have lost all confidence at the moment and lost 3 - 0 to 180 throwing Robbie Turner (23.86).
Alan Collins (23.28) took two legs to wake up before putting together a class finish to his game with Ben Adams (21.84). Adams could easily of won 3 - 0 but ended up losing 3 - 2, Collins hit a 180 in the third leg.
Kevin Edwards (25.91) drew his favourite position in the singles, last man, and beat Andy Rice (25.18) 3 - 0 in the best game of the night. Edwards hit a 174 and a 130 finish as Rice was unlucky not to take at least a leg.

Alan Collins (25.05), nursing a back injury, (Harwich seem to be the walking wounded at the moment) played a steady game to be Steve Prow (22.54) 3 - 0.
Kevin Edwards (29.47) would not have wanted the season to end the way he has been playing of late, this average could have been huge if it were not for a last leg of 24 darts. Edwards winning 3 - 0 against John Dudley (23.45).
Kevin Cook (21.22) had to dig deep to grind out a 3 - 2 win over Terry Pratt (21.04), something that he has failed to do in the past. Cook came from 2 - 1 down to win aided by a 120 finish.

To his credit he hit back with a 12 dart leg, 180, 80, 134 and game shot on 107. Halls (24.29) wouldn't go away and after going 2 - 1 up he was so unlucky with a 125 finish as he wired double top to win the game.

Skipper George Lord has head-hunted Alan Mathieson ever since Harwich formed and finally has his man. Mathieson (23.53) was a little inconsistant with his scoring but his finishing power was superb as he beat county B man Martin Compton (23.51) 3 - 2 with finishes of 82, 89 and 97.

The match then probably hinged on the next game as Mick Chambers (22.97) beat Mick Harris (23.45). Chambers raced into a 1 - 0 lead only for Harris to hit back and go 2 - 1 up but unusually the Springfield man missed his double in the next 2 legs and Chambers hit his to win 3 - 2.
Alan Collins (24.91) went 1 - 0 down as county B man Wayne Gleed (22.95) took out 123 on the bullseye but Collins fought back to take the next 3 legs with some excellent finishing of his own.
