Final Report - Sunday

 

Glen Durrant polishes off his 2018 World Darts Trophy campaign with a superb victory over Michael Unterbuchner. Unterbuchner took an early 2-0 lead, but Duzza was aware of his oppositions ability to power score, and some sharp finishing, including a 122 and 82 saw him claim back his advantage of throw. The pair were neck and neck at the break, but Durrant came out and broke Unterbuchner with a 130 finish and held his throw in the eleventh to go 7-4 ahead.

 

Durrant broke again in the fourteenth leg, and Unterbuchner broke straight back, but Duzza had his sights set of the title and steamed home with 12 dart leg and a 96.99 average, taking the match 10-7! Congratulations Glen…World-class darts throughout!

 

Congratulations to the 2018 World Darts Trophy Champion, Fallon Sherrock, who takes the title with a 6-3 victory over Lorraine Winstanley. Sherrock recorded a 90+ average in her semi-final this afternoon, and carried on where she left off, breaking Winstanley in the fifth leg to take away her advantage of throw.

 

Winstanley broke back in the sixth in 13 darts, but Sherrock returned the sentiment in the seventh with a 13 dart leg her own. With the scores at 5-3 to Sherrock, two missed darts from Winstanley at double saw her take out 85 to claim the match with an outstanding 94.23 average in a brilliant game on par with their male counterparts!

Ross Montgomery faced Michael Unterbuchner in the first semi-final of the mens tournament and the two players slugged it out, sharing the first ten legs before the German player took two consecutive legs to lead 7-5, Montgomery pulled a leg back but Unterbuchner checked the next to win 8-6.

                                      Scottish Pairs 2018

            

The inaugural Scottish Doubles championship in 1972 was held in the Eastfield Miners Club, Harthill and was won by Falkirk’s John McSkimming & Peter Hendry who defeated Paisley’s J. Duncan & A. Mclean in the final.  This championship was the culmination of play-offs which saw 61 league champions from all over Scotland travel to Lanarkshire to compete in the Grand Finals having taken their local titles to qualify.

 

Forty-seven years later in the new CISWO Club, Glenrothes the 2018 champions are Fife duo Dayle Morgan and Brendyn Donnelly who defeated Ayrshire’s Jim McEwan & Steve Robertson, former champions in 2015, 4-2 in the final.

 

The semi-finalists were Kevin Feeley & Jim Gay who lost out 3-0 to their fellow Fife county players Morgan & Donnelly and Lanarkshire’s Derek Cunningham & Graham Anderson, the 2008 champions, who lost by the odd leg in five to the Ayrshire duo of Robertson & McEwan.

 

The ladies title went to Christine Hyde & Emily Davidson from Grampian who picked up their second Scottish title with a 4-2 win in the final against Tay Valley’s Rone Mollison and Janice Rogers.

 

The champions previously won the title in 2015 and lost in last year’s final.

 

Losing out at the semi-final stage were June McCallum & Debbie McBride, Renfrewshire with Gayle Maxwell & Sophie McKinlay, representing Central and East Stirlingshire respectively.

 

In a disappointing down-trend the entries were very conservative at 50 in the mens event and 25 in the ladies despite the prestigious titles at stake.

                                                         Celtic Challenge

                Friday 23th February– Sunday 25th February2018

                             
The second Celtic Challenge started on Friday night at Bellinis, Newry, 
Northern Ireland, with the warm-up mens and ladies singles where both winners donate their prizes to the charity of their choice.

 

The Celtic Challenge was devised to give the players from competing nations Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales an alternative to travelling to Japan to compete in the WDF World Cup, which was deemed too costly at that time.  It proved so popular in its inaugural outing in Glenrothes last year, where host nation Scotland lifted both mens and ladies titles, that a permanent date on the fixture calendar was sought.

 

In an all Grampian final Bruce Montgomery faced fellow Scotsman Scott Robertson for the mens singles title and triumphed 4-2.  Bruce Montgomery defeated Jesse Heal from Wales while Scott beat local player Chris Gilliland in his last four match

 

The ladies singles was an all-Wales affair from the semi-finals onwards, with Chris Savvery getting the better of her Welsh team-mate Anne Marie Potts in the final.

 

Chris Savvery had defeated her Welsh captain Rhian O’ Sullivan while Anne Marie got the better of Nikki Goldsmith to reach the final.

Saturday 09/12 Press Release

For tomorrow the names of the players in the quarter finals men and the youth and women’s finals are known. After some thrilling matches and surprising results and calculation of the tournament officials 12 players start on Sunday to obtain the title.

        

                         Nathan Qualifies for the Youth Final

In the last games of the group stage on Saturday night, these decisions were made. In group G with Martin Adams, Scott Waites and Kyle McKinstry we had a special situation. All three players had the same result so based on the tournament darts average Scott Waites became the winner of this group and so entered the quarterfinals.

In group D, the same could happen as in group G, but Willem Mandigers, the seeded player in the group managed to prevent this by winning 5-3 in a nervous final phase of his match against debutant Michael Unterbuchner from Germany and so he entered the quarter finals.

In group A, Lithuanian Darius Labanauskas defeat Mark McGeeney, the number one seed of the tournament, 5-1. Both had won a match in the group and the winner of that match qualified for the quarterfinals. So that was Darius Labanauskas.

In group B of the ladies’ tournament also a sensational match for a place in the ladies’ finale.  Aileen de Graaf who was 3-0 in front against Anastasia Dobromyslova had to play a deciding 7th leg as Anastasia won 3 legs in a row for 3-3.

And in that leg both players were on a double but the match darts at last was thrown by Aileen de Graaf who now plays Deta Hedman for the ladies’ title.

Winmau World Masters 2017 Scotland Report 

2017 will be remembered fondly by Scottish players as a fairly successful tournament for the “Tartan Army” with representation at final stages right across the board.

 

The Winmau mens title went to Poland for the first time when Krzysztop Ratajski defeated the number one seed Mark McGeeney from England 6-1 in the final.

 

Scotland’s Cameron Menzies took out Steve Alker (Wales) 3-1 in the Last 32, Mark McGrath (New Zealand) 3-1 in the Last 16 and Jim Williams (Wales) 4-0 in the quarter final to set up a semi-final match against the eventual champion. READ MORE

                          

Completing a fantastic double, Scotland’s Ross Montgomery won the 2017 Winmau British Open Singles Championship at Bridlington to add to his Open Doubles title successfully retained earlier in the week in tandem with Scott Mitchell.

 

In an all-Tartan final, including Anthony Dundas refereeing, Ross defeated Ayrshire’s Cameron Menzies 6-5 in a cracking final denying defending champion Cameron consecutive British Open titles.

 

Ross’s route to the final included a 4-1 win over Dave Prins in the last 16, 4-2 against Scott Waites in the quarter finals and finally a 5-4 victory over Conan Whitehead in the semi-final coming from two legs down to reach the last two.

 

Cameron took out Willem Mandingers 4-0 in the last 16, Martin Adams 4-3 in the quarter finals and finally BDO No1 Glen Durrant 5-3 in the semi-finals.

 

This result confirms that both players will be competing at Lakeside in the World Championships.

Great Scottish interest in the 2017 British Open Pairs Championship at Bridlington.  The Scotland & England pairing of Ross Montgomery and Scott Mitchell defeated Polish duo Tytus Kanik and Pawel Monynka 3-1 in the final to take the championship. 

The Polish due had earlier ended other Scottish hope when they beat Jim McEwan & Tony O’Shea in the Last 16 and then Ryan Hogarth & Paul Brown in the Quarter finals.

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.

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

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.
