Lanzarote

I played in the Bedworth masters after returning from a lovely few weeks in Lanzarote with my wife but failed to win it for the fourth year running losing 5-4 to Rob Cross.  I definately felt a little rusty after not picking up a dart for 3 weeks but am now back on the practise board and looking forward to a couple of exhibitions this coming weekend.

Update

So disappointed losing in the last 16 of the Worlds to Darius Labanauska but looking forward to Feb when the darts year starts all over again.
My wife and I saw in the New Year with lovely neighbours so am nicely rested and ready to go!!!!

World Championship 3rd round

I reached the last 16 of the World Championship for the first time in 16 years with a fabulous victory over James Wade.

I  had to dig deep to get the 4-2  result and will now take on Darius Labanauskas in the fourth round.

I’ve had so many bad Christmases but I can go and enjoy it now, knowing that I’m coming back for another game.

I’ve got to be positive and think I’ve got every chance of getting even further in the tournament.

William Hill World Championships 2nd rd

I defeated Kyle Anderson 3-1 in the second round of the William Hill World Championships held at Alexandra Palace in London from the 13th Dec 2019-1st January 2020.  I will play James Wade in the 3rd round Sunday evening 22nd Dec.
I thoroughly enjoyed the match taking out a 170 on my way to victory and I love the buzz you get on that stage.  Looking forward to playing James next !!!!

It was my 29th consecutive appearance in the World Championships, 19th for the PDC and I played 10 in the BDO.
Happy Days !!!!

I lost 6-5 to Ricky Evans in the Ladbrokes Players Championship Finals at Butlins in Minehead at the weekend, again I had doubles to win the game so only myself to blame.
The draw for the William Hill World Championship has been made and I will play either Kyle Anderson or Xiaochen Zong in my first round match. Draw below:

World Grand Prix Dublin

Not one of my better nights losing to Jeffrey de Zwaan in the first round I just didn’t feel comfortable. It was a pretty rubbish weekend all round really.
Never mind just glad to be in the tournament.
Looking forward to a few days at home to refresh and start again. Thanks for all the support means the world to me 👍
Thank you to my sponsors Winmau, The Wigley Group, HRGO Recruitment & Airport Placements !!!!

Barnsley weekend 20-22 September

I had a brilliant start to the weekend in Barnsley by qualifying for ET13  Gibraltar Darts Trophy September 27-29, Victoria Stadium, Gibraltar but in the 2 Pro Tours that followed I only made the last 64 both days.
Sorting myself for Gibraltar now which is the last European event of 2019 to see who else qualifies for the European Championship Finals in Gottingen from 25-27 October as I am really happy to have already secured my place in this event!!!!
