Thank you for all the support I have received and thank you to my sponsors #Winmau and #Thewigleygroup

Super Series 5 updates – Ricoh Coventry

Firstly I was gutted not to qualify for the World Matchplay in Blackpool next week but onwards and upwards I did qualify for the first 2 European events in Budapest Hungary 3-5 September and Gibraltar 24-26 September, I played great all day and was unlucky not to qualify for the third European event.
Pro Tour 17 – I went out first round, Pro Tour 18 – Last 64, Pro Tour 19 – Last 64 and Pro Tour 20 – I went out first round, so not much to write home about there.
Pro Tour 17 – Stephen Bunting claimed victory.  Pro Tour 18 – Chris Dobey claimed his maiden ranking title.  Pro Tour 19 – Ross Smith claimed his maiden ranking title.  Pro Tour 20 – Peter Wright claimed victory.
I am playing some great darts so I’m looking forward to Barnsley 2-4 August.
It great to see some exhibitions being booked again now maybe things will be back to normal soon !!!!

Results- Super Series 4 Marshall Arena Milton Keynes 14-17 June

A great few days in Milton Keynes Super Series 4.
I felt good all four days and played some excellent darts.
Pro Tour 13 – 1st rd   won 6-4 against Ross Smith, 2nd rd won 6-5 against Martin Lukeman, Last 32  won 6-5 against Danny Noppert, then lost 3-6 to Gerwyn Price.
Pro Tour 14 – 1st rd won 6-3 against Martijn Kleermaker, then lost 5-6 to Gary Anderson with an average 104 which was a brilliant game of which I took a 4-0 lead but unfortunately that was not enough as Gary went crazy from there on. I hit 7×180’s and didn’t miss much on the outer ring but then missed 2 match darts in the penultimate game.
Pro Tour 15 – I went out in the 1st rd 5-6 to William O’Connor.
Pro Tour 16 – 1st rd won 6-2 against Boris Krcmar, 2nd rd won 6-1 against Alan Tabern, Last 32 won 6-1 against Mervyn King (av 100.2)
Last 16 won 6-2 against Lewis Williams and then lost 6-5 in the quarter finals against Luke Humphries (av 96.6) I was unlucky to miss the bullseye for the match and had to watch Luke take out 65 for the victory. I was gutted but am really pleased that I am putting in some great performances again.
Looking forward to Super Series 5 in a couple of weeks at the Ricoh in Coventry, my home city.
Thank you to everyone of my supporters and to my sponsors Winmau and The Wigley Group.

Recap of SUPER SERIES 3 in Niedernhausen, Germany

Steve rounds up Super Series 3 campaign with his best run of the week today, finally he made the Last 32 after coming close on the three attempts before! Well-deserved 🔝💪
Steve showed steady performances all week long, averaging between 91 and 99 in 8 out of his 9 matches! No first round exits as he was beating David Evans (6:4), John Brown (6:1), Lisa Ashton (6:4) and Derk Telnekes (6:3) in his openers.
Second round proved to be tricky on the first three days. Steve had his chances but unfortunately fell short to Danny Noppert (3:6), Steve Lennon (4:6) and Robert Thornton (4:6). The closest he came was against Thornton: Steve achieved his highest average of the Series (98.37) ✨ and was absolutely flying when he took a 4:1 lead, maybe should have won from here but Robert fought back and turned the tide. 🙈
On the last day of action Steve finally managed to break into the Last 32 with a great win over in-form Andy Boulton (6:1)! 💥 In his following game with Michael Smith Steve came back from 1:3 and forced world’s number 8 into a deciding leg, unfortunately with it wasn’t to be in the end.
Great and steady darts Steve, keep it going! Have a safe way home 🍀🍻

UK OPEN/ Round 3

🎯 UK OPEN/ Rnd 3: Steve 5:6 McGeeney 🎯
Doubles seemed to be smaller than trebles for Steve today …what a strange game! 😱
Steve looked really poised at beginning, got his scoring going very well in the second leg and went clear by over 300 points in that one, absolutely nothing pointed to a scrapy battle for Steve at that point …but somehow he couldn’t find the outer ring before Mark found a way to escape. 😬 After losing the next leg too The Adonis was 0:3 down. Mark wasn’t hitting much except from his doubles to be honest, so a comeback definitely wasn’t out of reach! Steve must have been thinking exactly the same and took the next three legs in 14, 18 and 19 darts to level the game! The following legs were caracterized by low scoring from Mark and missed chances by Steve. Nevertheless Steve managed to break the throw for his first lead at 5:4! He seemed to be the much better player of the two all match long and it really felt like there was only one winner from here …but it wasn’t to be. Steve came close at the bull for a 122 comination in the penultimate leg to seal the deal and unfortunately missed his second match dart on D16 on an 101 combination in the decider. 🙈 Hard times on the outer ring for Steve today, 18 missed darts proved to be too much as Mark hitted 6 out of his 10 attempts.
Fun fact: At least Steve’s darts are into Round 4 …Alan Soutar who is impressing in his first year on tour so far is trusting in Steve’s old silver darts 🧐
Not the result we all hoped for, but the good thing is: After a tough second half of last season Steve’s throw looks so promising again this year …as smooth as it ever was! ✨ Keep it going champ and 2021 might be bright 🔝🎯
Steve will be back for Super Series 2 on March 16th

🎯 Recap of SUPER SERIES 1 🎯
Steve will enter the UK Open on Friday in good form! Averaging mid 90s in 7 of his 10 matches last week is a great sign of fighting back to the top 🔥🔝 The powerful quarter final run on Day 2 has been outstanding, but even on the other days Steve could only be beaten in very tight games.
Steve brought back his gold and blue darts, but with black points instead of his familiar silver knurled ones. It seemed like the new points were sticking in the board more secure 🎯
