ROOKIE BRANTON CLINCHES OPENING DARTZONE AT RILEYS
Yes, darts on a snooker site! The name Branton is normally associated with snooker in the Plymouth area with father Wayne and son Dale often in the frame in regional tournaments. However, Wayne Branton has shown us another side to his talents on the dart board, by wining the inaugural Rileys Dartzone competition against another of Plymouth’s men of the green baize, Adrian Lamerton.
Branton was in superb form all day and a classic final was on the cards against the talented Lamerton. After an early lead taken by Lamerton, Branton turned up the heat from a 1-3 deficit to level at 3-3 before checking out on double eight at the first attempt to win 4-3. Branton has a habit of wining inaugural competitions, he won the very first WEBSF Gold Waistcoat event back in 2004, Who would bet against him wining the inaugural onefourseven snooker tournament due to take place in Rileys this coming season?….Let’s hope he remembers that a cue is for potting and not for throwing!!!
