The standard was high again in the latest round of REDSL action.

It also saw 54 of the 84 legs played completed within 20 darts or less.

Individually Charlie Marshall impressed again with two 4-2 victories, including two of the 180s and a 111 finish showing that the young Wingerworth marksman has really settled into REDSL life in his debut season.

Another debutant who is upwardly mobile is Paul Redfern after he moved into a season high sixth place. He also won both his games 4-2 against tough opponents and equalled the least darts of the season firing in an 11 dart leg.
