Lakeside/Winmau International Play-offs 2016

Scotland had a brilliant first day at the combined Winmau World Masters and Lakeside World Championship International play-offs at the home of World darts, Lakeside, Frimley Green.

Pick of the bunch was 14- year old Nathan Girvan representing the Angus Youth Academy and Scotland who charged his way through a packed field of talented youth players from all round the world to set up a head to head with arguably the top ranked youth in the world next January at the World Championships.

Nathan will face 16-year old Justin Van Tergouw from the Netherlands, the current World Youth Master and Europe Cup Youth champion, in the final of the World Youth Championships during the Lakeside Championships at the start of next year.

The Angus starlet defeated another Dutch player, Maikel Verbert, 4-1 in his semi-final while Van Tregouw accounted for a third Dutch player Levy Frauenfelder, 4-3, in his last four match.  Highlight of Nathan’s day was a 170 checkout against Verbert in his qualifying final match.

Nathan topped the Scotland Youth tables this season and has been on sparkling form winning eight tour titles out of a possible thirteen.

A couple of Scotland’s other top youths, John Gallazzi and Aaron Douglas also had a good tournament reaching the last 32.

Olive Byamukama celebrated her 40th BICC county win for Highland last weekend by storming her way into the televised stages of the Ladies Lakeside World Championships defeating England star Tricia Wright 3-1 in her qualifying final.

Olive played six matches during the day and dropped just one leg and her three previous round opponents were Grace Crane (Northern Ireland), Laura Turner (England) and Dorothee Lemaire (France).

Olive is joined at Lakeside by Canada’s Patricia Farrell who got the better of Northern Ireland’s Margaret Coulter, 3-2, in their last qualifying match.

The four men’s qualifiers to take part in the Lakeside World Championships are Paul Hogan (England), Willem Mandigers (Netherlands), Davy Van Baelen (Belgium) and Mark McGrath (New Zealand).

Ayrshire’s Cameron Menzies was just pipped at the final hurdle by McGrath having won five matches to reach the qualifying final.

Craig Quinn, who recently had such a good Jersey Festival, was knocked out by Hogan in the last 16 whilst Alan Soutar from Angus went out at the same stage, losing to Swiss player Thomas Junghans.

Scotland had another three players in the last 32, Ryan Hogarth from Borders who lost 2-1 to England’s David Stokell, Fife player Jamie Clark losing 2-0 to Junhghans and Darren Beveridge from Lothian who lost 2-0 to Van Baelen
