Legends by name, Legends by nature


Brynmawr Legends ladies team became legends in their own right this week as they lifted a 5th successive title in Gwent Superleague. Comprised of a team of County and national players they beat local rivals, King William, by 4 points to retain the league title.


With some of the highest averages across the league they looked good for the title but it came down to the last couple of games as the ladies at the King William gave them a tough fight. Rhian Griffiths posted the highest individual game average of the season with an outstanding 28.9. She finishes the season top of the averages with a dynamic average of 50.03 having been the only player in the league to maintain a 100% winning average.


Between the team they posted 25 of the 34 20+averages in the league this season and 17 of the 41 180s.


The big surprise came after the final game when the team announced they are taking a year out next season.


Posting on Facebook team captain Kaye Paul said "Another season over another win for Legends Ladies superleague team, so proud to be their captain and team player for this outstanding team performance once again. We have won the Gwent superleague title 5 times and have met and played against some great teams.

Congratulations to the King William on 2nd place, some hard fought and great games played by both teams.

As you all know by now Legends Ladies are taking a season out so I would like to wish all the teams playing next season all the very best, you will probably see us when you play in our local venues but this time we will be spectators. It has been our pleasure playing against you all.

Only one thing left to say CONGRATULATIONS

My dart team and my best friends thank you girls".


We wish all the players the best and look forward to their return hopefully in 2024.

Second place this year went to Brynmawr's King William. Jade Hickey finishing with the second highest individual game average of the season with a 23.77. They wished their rivals all the best during their break next season and I'm sure will be looking forward to resuming the battle with them when they return.


In 3rd place this season was the Cwmbran team who left it until the very last match where they beat the league champions to leapfrog Newport into 3rd. Shannon Chappell taking the honours this season with the highest out - 164.


Another notable addition to the league players this season was youngster Abbie Brewster. Abbie, a product of Gwent youth, made her league debut for Newport alongside former youth team mate, Jess Bonner and quickly made her mark posting averages of 22 and 20.87 earning herself a senior county call up. Despite only playing 7 games at the end of the season she finished with the second highest running average of the year with a 17.79. She will definitely be one to watch as she progresses next year.


Congratulations to all the ladies teams on a fantastic season and I can't wait for next year.
