European Tour 1 Minehead

The first European Tour of the year held at Butlins, Minehead, didn’t go to plan as I lost 6-4 to Kurt van de Rijck in the first  round. I was scoring really well but missed too many doubles and you  know what they say “scoring for show, doubles for dough”.

Congratulations to John Part now the Uk Masters Champion after defeating Stuart Kellett 6-4 in the final.

CRAWLEY SPEEDY SERVICES UK OPEN WEEKEND

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

World Championship – second game is on Sunday 23rd at 3-20pm

Steve secured his place in the second round of the Ladbrokes World Darts Championship thanks to a 3-0 victory over Australia’s Kyle Anderson.

Steve missed doubles in the first two sets but thankfully Kyle didn’t capitalise on them.

Steve took the third set without reply to set up an eye-catching last 32 encounter against number three seed James Wade.

That game will take place on Sunday 23rd December at approx 3.20pm in the afternoon.

World Championship – Steve’s first game Tuesday 18th Dec – 7pm

Hi Everyone,

It’s that time of year again ‘The World Championships’ starting Friday!!!!! (14th December, 2012)

This Great Tournament and the Alexandra Palace is such a Brilliant Venue.

I have been putting in extra practise on my shots out as I was disappointed at missing so many doubles against Merv in Minehead after such a good game against Barney in the first round but positive thinking I have been performing well all year so I am really hoping for a good run in the Worlds.

My first round match is on Tuesday evening against Kyle Anderson ( Australian) and I am looking forward to it.

My sponsors for this tournament are Winmau, Wigley Commercial, Punchdartsclassic.co.uk and The Porters Lodge London

Enjoy all the festivities and of course the darts!!!!!!!!!!!

Happy Darting
Steve

Our New Website is finally ready!

As some of you may know, we were left in the rather unfortunate position of having our website closed – not wishing to go into any details but it was not expected. But thanks to a friend of ours, it has all been turned round and something positive has come out from it all – our fabulous new website.

As with all things new, there may well be a few teething troubles, so if you spot anything that you believe to be wrong or an error, do let us know via the contacts page 🙂

Many thanks for your patience …. enjoy!
