Harwich produced what was possibly the greatest come back in the superleague history, especially as it was against reigning and previously unbeaten champions Hockley, 5 - 1 down playing in the eyes of skipper George Lord 'rubbish' they gradually got it back to set up Kevin Cook who was in blistering form (34.16) to win the match.

Mick Chambers (19.24) and Jason Warren (22.33) lost to Darrell Claydon (22.10) and Mick Baglow (25.85) who hit a 180 and worse was to follow as Scott Lawrie (22.55) and Alan Collins (25.53) were hammered by Johnny McFall (30.00) and Gary Phipps (25.61). Phipps winning the game with a 105 finish and Collins hit a 180.

Marcus Smith (21.08) was up next against county A man Gary Phipps (20.32) and for 2 legs you would have thought they had never played darts before. Smith kept his nerve to win 3 - 2 after being 2 - 1 down and had a 100 finish.
Scott Lawrie (29.37) will rate this win over former PDC man Steve Smith (30.44) as one of his best ever. At 2 - 0 up Smith had a dart at double 12 to win 3 - 0 but missed and Lawrie stepped into to win 3 - 2 in a very even game. Smith had a 136 finish and there were 24 ton pluses in the game.

Thurrock 5 Harwich 7 (16/01/10)
No disrepect to Thurrock but Harwich were glad to have what appeared to be an easy game after the extended lay off due to the bad weather, however as Harwich missed their doubles, Thurrock kept hitting theirs and Harwich were lucky to come away with a win.

Worse was to follow as the team bus broke down at Pitsea but as we waited for the AA (not alchoholics anonymous) we were kept entertained by Ada trying to resuscitate a dead fox. He was last seen with a nice fur round his neck.
Southend 7 Harwich 5 (15/12/09)
Harwich suffer another blow as Southend play very well to take the points. Love him or hate him Steve Maish has got Southend playing as a team.

Basildon 6 Harwich 6 (03/12/09)
Harwich struggled with Simon Cook unavailable and were a shadow of the team from the previous week and it was even more disappointing when the news came that joint second place Southend drew as well.
Adrian Genery (25.33) and Kevin Edwards (30.28) hit 7 scores of 100 or more in succession then missed 9 darts at a double before seeing off Dave Orton (27.94) and James Jennings (23.87) in 36 darts.
Peter Barton (16.19) and George Lord (21.69) made it 2 - 0 eventually as Lord scored heavily but both players found a double hard to come by when beating Carl Smith (16.62) and Keith Ridgway (17.15).
The game was then thrown into confusion when the next pair from Basildon were unavailable as 1 player was playing a match at the other end of the bar so Scott Lawrie (26.09) and Ben Attridge (20.05) had to play next. They found county B man Phil Halls (31.18) in top form and with partner Les Atkins (15.00) Basildon made it 2 - 1.

George Lord (21.29) had a repeat of the previous week when he went 2 - 0 down playing awful and then produced steady darts for a 3 - 2 win over Les Atkins (19.63).
Alan Collins (24.62) couldn't hit a double and paid the price as Tommy Butler (21.59) took his chances to record his first win of the season with a 3 - 1 victory.
More trouble followed as Kevin Edwards (24.35) lost 3 - 0 to county A man Dave Orton (27.33).
It was left to Mick Chambers (22.77) to salvage a much needed point as he overcame the challenge of Dave O'Meara (20.21) with a comfortable 3 - 0 win.

Scot Lawrie (30.70) had lost the previous 2 games playing well and it must have been in the back of his mind this could be 3 as Paul Doherty (26.90) put him under pressure. At 2 - 2 Lawrie responded with a superb 11 dart leg to get back to winning ways. Lawrie hit a 101 finish and a 180.
