I’m pleased with my start to the year in  the UK Open Qualifiers held at  the K2 Centre, Crawley at the weekend.

On the Saturday Colin Lloyd beat me 6-4 in the third round after wins over Sam Hamilton and Mark Frost.
On the  Sunday I faired better by making it to the last 16 beating  John Bowles 6-5  in the first taking  a 170 shot out to  win the game. Then Colin Osborne 6-1, Ian Moss 6-1, Michael Mansell 6-0 then lost to Mervyn King 6-3.
I played well all day and am happy with my performance.

Robert Thornton hit a nine dart finish on the Saturday and Kevin Thomas hit one on the Sunday.
Congratulations to Michael Van Gerwen who is still in excellent form for completing the Crawley Double claiming victory over Dave Chisnall on the Saturday and Brendan Dolan on the Sunday.

I’m now looking forward to the first European Tour of the year at Butlins, Minehead 8th-10th March.

Happy Darting
