BDO British International 2017

The cream of Scottish darts travels to Bradford for the weekend of March 24th – 26th to compete in the BDO British International Championships, facing England and Wales at Mens, Ladies and Youth levels.

The event takes place at the Cedar Court Hotel, Bradford and tickets are going fast.  For the chance to see the top players from three nations and witness the rivalry and atmosphere of top class darts go to  http://www.englanddarts.co.uk for tickets.

England swept the board in the inaugural 1979 event taking both the men’s and ladies titles and have more or less dominated the tournament since then.

In the men’s event the title was shared between England and Wales in 1981 and Scotland have had two championship victories, in 2000 and 2008, with all the other titles going to England.

England have taken more ladies titles than any of the other two nations with Wales winning in 1991, 1992, 1994, 1997 and 2009, plus a share of the title with Scotland in 1986.  Scotland’s two victories came in 1981 and 1998.

We return to Bradford with Wales defending the mens crown they won last year in Glenrothes and England going for their eighth consecutive title in the ladies event.

Dutch Open 2017

Scotland were well represented in the final stages of this year’s Dutch open in Assen.

The Dutch Open, one of the oldest major tournaments in the world, was started in 1973 with the ladies tournament added in 1995 and is widely regarded as one of the most difficult to win.

This year around 4000 entries started in the Mens Open and resulted in England’s Mark McGeeney playing Scotland’s own Ross Montgomery in the final.  In a nip and tuck match McGeeney took the title 3-1.

Ross, a former champion in 2014, had earlier defeated Martin Adams in the last 16, ending his hopes of three in a row and then Dean Reynold in the quarters and Scott Mitchell in the semi-final.  The other semi-finalist was Rhys Griffin.

Scotland International player Craig Quinn reached the last 32 of the singles before losing to Dutch player Sietse Lap.

Deta Hedman took the Ladies Singles for the second time, having previously won in 2010, taking the final 5-4 against Lisa Ashton, herself a former winner last year.

The semi-finalists were Lorraine Winstanley who lost out to the champion and Sharon Prins.

In the Mens Pairs 1351 entries went into the draw and East Stirlingshire’s Craig Quinn teamed up with the Open champion Mark McGeeney to battle their way through to the final.  There they met Scott Mitchell and James Hurrell and despite taking the early lead lost out 5-4.

McGeeney was defending the title he had won with Dutch star Jimmy Hendricks last year and this was Scott Mitchell’s third title having won in 2014 and 2015.

The semi-finalists were Dennis Nijs & Jonny Nijs and Sven Verdonck & Geert de Vos.

Deta Hedman almost made it a clean sweep of titles as she partnered Lorraine Winstanley to the Ladies Pairs final where they lost out 4-3 to Ailleen de Graaf and Sharon Prins.

Both losing semi-finalists teams came from England and were Trina Gulliver & Danielle Ashton along with Sue Cusick & Lisa Ashton

Scottish Open 2017

The closing date for the Scottish Open at the Normandy Hotel, Renfrew, is fast approaching.  All Open Singles entries must be in by Saturday 11th February with the opening competition taking place on Friday 17th February.  This will take the traditional form of a Mixed Triples and anyone wishing to enter can still do so up till 7.00pm on the Friday evening.

Saturday’s singles will once again be held in two sessions, morning and afternoon, while the doubles can be entered during the day on Saturday, but organisers warn that if you don’t enter early enough you may miss out as the top limit is reached.

Both defending champions, Netherland’s sensation Danny Noppert and England’s Lorraine Winstanley, have entered this year’s competition along with many of the BDO stars from all round the World.

Currently both alpha lists of entrants can be accessed on the Scottish website at www.sdadarts.com  allowing all players to check that their name is actually entered.

Lakeside 2017

Angus Academy sensation Nathan Girvan was Scotland’s final hope this year for success at the home of World darts, Lakeside, Frimley Green, but alas it was not to be.  Nathan approached the final on the back of an excellent qualifying campaign and around a dozen titles on the SDA youth circuit.

Fourteen year old Nathan was facing Dutch youth champion Justin van Tergouw, who at sixteen is the current Winmau Youth Masters, Finders Youth Master and Europe Cup Youth Champion who has won nineteen titles this year including the German, Danish and Belgium youth events.

Nathan took the opening leg but sadly that was to be his last checkout as the Dutch player raced through the gears to take the match 3-0 (3-1, 3-0, 3-0), nineteen tons including three maximums, to finish with a 29.40 average for the match.

Nathan could do nothing about the result and indeed finished with a very credible 24.85 average and nine tons.

Both players showed the appreciative Lakeside crowd that the future of youth darts is in safe hands, summed up perfectly by Nathan’s comment afterwards, “There’s always next year.”  Clearly two players with bright futures in darts.

Lakeside 2017

 

Ross Montgomery faced Richard Veenstra, the current Europe Cup Singles champion from Holland, in his first round match at Lakeside and proudly carried the weight of expectancy from all over Scotland.

Veenstra did not take long to make his intentions clear with a rapid-fire 12 dart first leg, with a 180 and checking out on 127 despite a 180 from Montgomery.  Veenstra took the second leg with another 180 and Ross answered back with the third leg but the Dutch player wrapped up the first set in the next leg, checking out on 144.

Montgomery dug deep and took set two with a 30.23 average and a brace of maximums compare to Veenstra’s 30.37 and one maximum.

Veenstra then took the third set 3-0 (15, 15, & 13 dart legs) and a 121 checkout.

The fourth set was nip and tuck with Montgomery hitting another 180 but it was Veenstra who took the deciding leg and the match three sets to one.

Veenstra finished with an overall average of 30.49, 43 tons including three maximums and four ton plus checkouts whilst Ross had a 28.75 average, 41 tons with four maximums.

Scottish hopes are now resting with 14 year old Angus Academy player Nathan Girvan who plays in the World Youth final on Thursday against Justin van Tergouw of the Netherlands.

Lakeside 2017

Olive Byamukama wrote herself into the history books this week as only the second lady darts player to represent Scotland at the Lakeside World Championships, following Anne Kirk.

The 42 year-old Ugandan born player who represents Highland in the BICC, yet shuns league darts preferring to practice at home, blitzed her way through the qualifying tournament in November to gain her place in the last 16 in the World.

Her opening match was against Fallon Sherrock, seeded seven and last year’s runner-up.  Olive started brightly winning the opening leg but sadly that was to be the last winning double from the Highland star.

Fallon went on to take the match 2-0 in sets (3-1, 3-0) to take her place in the quarter finals to play Lisa Ashton who ironically used to play doubles with Olive in her Lancashire days.

Olive finished with a 23.29 average compared to 26.13 from Fallon and she scored ten tons in her seven legs.

As a consolation Olive’s picture has gained her spot on the Lakeside wall along with all the other competitors from throughout the years and the £500 prize-money will be handy too.
