STAR Wars-inspired team The Dart Vaders retained the Darts Ryder Cup.

They comfortably defeated a well under-par Dart Foundation team in the annual showdown at Taylors Hotel in Kilwinning.

The Dart Vaders dominated from start to finish and retained the trophy with games to spare.

With the scoring averages similar, it was the Vaders that took advantage of poor finishing from their opponents to seal the victory.

Lifting the trophy for the victors was Brian "The Real" Deal Johnstone, who has came back after a health scare earlier this year.
