DARTS players in Whitby set a new world record for the most legs of darts played in 12 hours.

Nige Prudhom, Andy Anderson, Paul Upton, Gary Johnson, Les Brown, Adam Fitzpatrick and Garry Summerson played 278 legs – 10 more than the world record - in Whitby Cricket Club’s annual darts marathon and grand prize draw.

Prudom was player of the day after completing 142 legs and only losing 20 - also recording the highest finish of 130 - while Gary Johnston hit five maximum 180s.

The darts were followed by the raffle, with over 80 prizes, the main prize being a 32 inch flat screen TV, which was won by Whitby resident Zara Helm.

A total of £2,700 was raised for club funds, with £500 donated by the club to St Catherine’s Hospice.

Club chairman John Hall thanks players, members and local businesses for their continuing support, organiser Garry Summerson and Keith Wood, who worked the bar all day.
