I had a great weekend in Killarney making it to the Quarter Finals on the Saturday in the Gleneagle Hotel Players Championship and the Semi Finals on the Sunday in the John McEvoy Players Championship.
On the Saturday I started 6-0 against Luke Cheevers then Andy Jenkins 6-2, Joe Cullen 6-3, Dean Winstanley 6-1 and lost 6-3 to Jamie Caven in the Quarters.
Robert Thornton defeated Jamie Caven 6-5 in the final.
On the Sunday I was still in good form starting with a 6-5 win over Joey Palfreyman in a very close game followed by a 6-4 against Johnny Haines, 6-2 over Vincent van der Voort, 6-5 in another close game against David Pallett, a 6-4 win over Gary Anderson in the Quarters then lost to the eventual winner Kim Huybrechts 6-2.
Kim defeated Kevin Painter 6-0 in the final.
After missing double 12 to beat James Wade in the first round of the World Grand Prix earlier this month I am pleased I’m still playing good consistent steady darts leading up to the Worlds.
I’m now off to the Championship League at Crondon Park next.
