DAVE Pickles has lifted Widnes & District Darts League's most coveted and toughest trophy to win - for the second time in four years.
Pickles came from behind to defeat John Bowles by two legs to one to lift the Weekly News Individuals shield and make it double despair for the runner-up.
Bowles had dusted himself down from losing the Cheshire Roof Trusses 501 League Individuals final to Alan Clark to take the first leg of the equivalent RTB singles in 21 darts.
However, Pickles squared the match in 18 and won the decider in 20.
John Bowles, however, did enjoy two successes - partnering Clark to a 2-0 victory over Brian Dutton & Darren Grant of hosts RAOB in the Phil McGuinness President's Pairs.
The 180s Cup final was also won by John Bowles - in straight legs of 20 and 16 darts against Paul Linger.
The Weekly News trophy semi-finals had seen Bowles defeat Alan Magee in two straight sets and Pickles having to fight hard for a 2-1 verdict over Darren Grant.
But Bowles' hopes of a third successive 501 singles crown were later dashed, despite his 17-dart display in the opening leg against Clark.
The latter hit back to level and promptly completed his fourth 501 Individuals title with a 15-darter.
In the semi-finals, John Bowles had overcome Barry Stanners 2-0 while Clark secured an all-Halton Stadium showdown in beating Jason Haddock by the same score.
Alan Magee clinched a double in the secretaries' cups with straight-legs victories over Joe Price in both.
He lifted the William Saxon 501 Cup with games of 24 and 21 darts while checking out of the Jack Adams RTB final in 18 and 14 darts.
Darren Grant won Division One's Alan Knowles Memorial Shield - defeating Alan Clark 2-0 with 21 and 17-dart legs - while the equivalent Division Two competition for the Alf Houghton Memorial Shield produced the closest contest of all.
Mark Lunt finally won the first leg against George Plumpton in 26 darts after it had been twice drawn. Plumpton squared matters in 22 only for Lunt to settle it with a superb 12-dart anchor leg.
Karl Windisch & James Baines took both the first and decisive third legs of the Cheshire Roof Trusses 501 Pairs in 19 darts - making a similar effort in between from Alan Magee & Ste Jones immaterial.
* Earlier in the week, a 20-dart first-leg display from Ste Jones set up Widnes Bowling Club for semi-final success in the Cheshire Roof Trusses 501 Section's Elizabeth Whitfield Cup.
However, they had to come from 4-2 down to defeat RAOB 5-4 with Jason Haddock, Peter Bowles and Alan Magee pulling off the rescue.
Halton Stadium defeated Mill Brow in the other 'semi'.
