Written by BDO Events - 13th February 2014.

Huddersfield’s James ‘Jamie Dodger’ Wilson was crowned the first BDO Daily Mirror World Trophy winner last night when he waltzed away from the Blackpool Tower Ballroom with the title.

The champion beat Ross ‘The Boss’ Montgomery 13-11 to win the new title. On hearing the result James collapsed to the floor, before getting up and punching his fists in triumph before the packed crows.

He said: ”To win this, the first ever one, you would not believe what this means “I came here this weekend having had a few up and down games, but I continued to fight back and, now to be a champion, feels amazing.”

Anastasia Dobromyslova beat Bolton’s 2014 BDO Lakeside World Champion Lisa Ashton 9-7 to in a sudden play off.

The final followed six days of action at the tower and the trophy is the first in a long series of new events organised by BDO Events, the commercial partner of the BDO.

Stephen Holland, BDO Events director, said: “We have been so pleased with the response to this, our first competition. The crowds have been amazing. “We want to inject new blood into the game at grass roots level so it was nice to see some younger players taking part. It’s an exciting time for darts.”

A chat with Fallon Sherrock:.
Written by Gareth Thomas - 27th August 2013.

Following tournament wins in the past few weeks, notably the British Classic, BDO’s Interim Press Officer, Gareth Thomas, chatted to 19 year old darts star Fallon Sherrock about her career so far, recent successes and what the future holds. Here's what she had to say: 

So Fallon, it’s been a successful few weeks for you, tell us about how its gone?

Yes I'm really happy with my performance over the last few weeks I've picked up a lot of points, I'm so proud of myself and hope to carry my form into the next few competitions leading to lakeside.

These aren’t your only tournament wins though, what else have you achieved in your short career so far?

I have had a really successful 2 years - I won: The, Girls WDF World Cup 2011, Girls Winmau World Masters 2012, Jersey Open 2012, Sittingbourne Open 2013, England National Singles 2013 and the British Classic 2013. I have also been  a finalist at the Northern Ireland Open, Scottish Open and Welsh Classic so I am really pleased with the way my darts are progressing. 

My greatest darts moment is winning against a friend in his garage with a bullseye, what would yours be?

My greatest darts moment to date is winning the girls youth World Cup as it give me the confidence to go out and achieve more in my up coming career. 

What got you into darts in the first place, how long have you been playing?

I've been playing darts a little under 3 years, I got into darts because all my family play including my twin sister Felicia who is also a keen and talented darts player.

Your county Buckinghamshire missed out on promotion this year but you did come 2nd in the Women’s A dynamic average table, do you have high hopes for the new county season?

Yes, Buckinghamshire is like one big family and I have great support from all officials and players - they really want me to do well. Our Ladies team are amazing, and it is a pleasure for me to play with them. We have strengthened our Mens team with players returning to us, so hopefully we will be able to secure promotion this year.

So who is your favourite BDO player? 

My favourite BDO player is the talented Deta Hedman, who I'm lucky enough to play pairs with her on the BDO circuit. 

And what song do you walk out too?

Well my old walk on song was 'Last Friday Night' - Katy Perry... But I'm currently looking for a new walk on song,

You’re 19 years old and you say darts is your hobby what else do you do?

Well most my free time is playing and practicing playing darts, I also go to college and i’m study hairdressing and have recently passed my course.

Finally, What’s the dream for you Fallon?

My dream is to be woman's world champion within the next 3 years.


Thanks Fallon, all the very best!



PHILL NIXON 1956 - 2013.
Written by Antony Dundas - 9th August 2013.

Just heard the truly awful news about one of our darting legends. A man I had the pleasure of playing against, refereeing for and befriending. Ever since we heard of his diagnosis with cancer the whole darting family pulled together and prayed together that he would pull through. The turnout at the charity night in Ferryhill proved how much this man was loved. Phill you'll be sadly missed my friend. Can't believe you've gone. You had a profound effect on so many people, and you'll never be forgotten.

"They never die who live in the hearts they leave behind."

Rest in peace, my friend.


PHILL NIXON NIGHT.
Written by Richard Ashdown - 11th July 2013.

Well, I’m struggling to put into words just what an amazing night it was for Phill Nixon in Ferryhill. Such was the support, my dear friend (and chauffeur) Richie Winpenny and I arrived at 6pm and struggled to get into the venue (which held 400!)…

Through the hard work of Paul Jennings, Glen Durrant and Graeme Stoddart, an 18 strong North East team was assembled featuring the likes of Gary Robson, Paul Nicholson, Tony Eccles, Adam Hunt, Linda Ithurralde and Tab Hunter to name but a few.

In response, a whole host of star names made their way across from the North West, headed by Darryl Fitton and Tony O’Shea… their team included Stephen Bunting, Peter Manley, John Walton, Robbie Green, Martin Atkins, Michael Smith, Rachel Brooks and Dean Winstanley.

The 36 players gave the capacity audience some superb entertainment, complete with their signature walk-ons they each played a leg of 1001. I’ve posted the full list of players/results below, but in summary the North East raced into a 5 leg lead… only for the North West to win 9 straight legs! With a draw to fight for, the North East got it back to 9-8, before Tony O’Shea beat Graeme Stoddart in the captains final leg to seal a 10-8 victory for the North West.

On a night such as this, politics was irrelevant of course as the darting community banded together, just as they always do. The PDC’s Tommy Cox, Graham Fairhurst and Alan Warriner were in attendance, alongside the EDO’s Tommy Thompson and Jean Haywood. Was especially good to see England selector Dawn Speed and League of Legends founder Lee Henderson, both of whom have suffered the personal tragedy in recent years that cancer can bring. Love and respect to you both!

The entire evening was held together by Phill’s dear friend Gary Taylor who hosted the events on stage. Elaine Kearns and I doubled up in refereeing the matches and marshalling the players and it was our absolute pleasure to be involved. We were joined on stage by non other than Phill’s 15 year old son David who did all the marking in the first half. What a brilliant lad… an absolute credit to his Mum and Dad, and not to mention a faultless chalker! Mustn’t forget our brilliant DJ for the evening Dave Doughty, and also Daniel Harte who did a superb job with the auction and raffle.

In a night of fundraising, the figure quoted to me at the end of the night was over £6,500! Absolutely mind-blowing, but it just goes to show the generosity of the darting people up there in Ferryhill and beyond, and just how much Phill Nixon means to us all. I’m pleased to say that the great man was present the entire evening with all of his family and friends. We’re all so full of respect and admiration for him. A champion in every sense.

A brave Suzanne Nixon made her way onto stage to speak to us all and at her request we ensured that every single player and supporter was present in the room to hear it. She had pre-written a speech but never looked at the paper once and instead she spoke from the heart. Her words will live forever in the memory of everyone who heard her speak, especially her closing phrase… “Cancer is just like a game of darts. Sometimes you win and sometimes you lose, but it’s how you play the game that counts…”

SUNSHINE DARTS AT BREAN SANDS.
Written by Robert Holmes - 12th June 2013.

It was a sunshine weekend at  Pontin's Brean Sands for the BDO International Open - both weatherwise and darts-wise!
On the oche, darts history was made  when Claire Stainsby and Glen Durrant recorded the first ever 9-Dart 501 in Mixed Pairs competition. Glen 177, Claire 180, Glen 144. T20 T20 D12. They went on to be eventual runners-up to Garry Thompson and  Deta Hedman who won the 2013 Mixed Pairs title.

To complete a memorable weekend, Claire and  Glen won the Mixed Triples with Tony Eccles.

In the Youth Singles Semi-Finals, the very impressive 14 year-old JORDAN SINGH beat JOE DAVIS 3-1 , and 16 year-old CASEY GALLAGHER, the only girl in the Youth Singles,  triumphed 3-2 over JOSH McCARTHY  to reach the final.
And what a final it turned out to be for young Jordan who hit a 180 in the 1st leg and then checked out on 116.  Another 180 came in the 4th leg  as he was eventually crowned 2013 Youth Singles Champion 3-1.
Both he and Casey plus all the youngsters who competed are real talents for the future of BDO darts.


In the Women's Singles Semi-Finals the in- form DETA HEDMAN beat Welsh favourite JULIE GORE 4-2 and TRINA GULLIVER beat RACHEL BROOKS 4-1 to set up an exciting final. 
In the final,  Deta  hit a 180 in the 2nd leg and had 81 left after 9 darts, but the doubles deserted her. However, Trina had to wait for her first 180 until the 7th leg when Deta was 4-2 up.  The Dark Destroyer eventually retained her 2012 BDO International Open title with a 5-2 win.


In the Men's Singles the only Dutchman left in the competition, JAN DEKKER beat Scotland's JOHN GOLDIE  5-3 in the Semi-Finals, and reigning Lakeside World Champion SCOTT WAITES raced into another major final with a 5-1 Semi-Final  triumph over JAMIE HUGHES.
In the final, Scott's high-scoring form deserted him as Jan powered into a 3-0 lead, but with a brilliant 124 checkout  Scott made it  3-1 and then hit a 180 in the next only to see it matched by Jan who went 4-1 up and then 5-1 before Scott pulled in back to 5-3.
But it was too little too late as the rampant Double-Dekker went on to win the final 6-3 in convincing style.

LAKESIDE 2014 TO BE INCREASED TO 40 MEN AND 16 WOMEN.
Written by Robert Holmes - 28th January 2013.

The 2014 Lakeside World Professional Darts Championships will be played from Saturday, January 4th to Sunday, January 12th, 2014 and will be bigger and better than ever!

The largest ever field of 40 Men and 16 Women will be competing for the most prestigious titles in World Darts.

The first three World Professional Championships from 1978 to 1980 were contested by just 16 Men, but from 1981 to 2013 the field was 32 Men. The Women's World Championship was introduced by the BDO in 2001 and has always been contested by 8 Women. Now it is being increased to 16 Women from the 2014 Lakeside World Professional onwards.

"This is a significant, exciting and progressive step forward", says BDO Tournament Director Wayne Williams. "Not only does it illustrate the global increase in the higher standards of BDO and WDF players, but it also satisfies the growing TV audiences created by TV coverage from BBC, ESPN and Europsort.

"Needless to say, we are delighted to be providing even more valuable opportunities for our players - men and women - as we move the BDO forward and enhance the most prestigious Championships in world darts".

The additional 8 Men for the 2014 World Pro will earn their places from competition within the worldwide regions of the WDF: Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Eastern Europe, Western Europe, Asia, Baltic & Scandinavia and the USA. All have regional ranking tables which are accessible on the BDO website from the Tables drop-down menu.

The remaining 32 players will come from the BDO Invitational Table, the World Professional International Play-Offs and include the Winmau World Masters Champion if not already qualified.

The 16 Women will come from the BDO Invitation Table, the World Professional International Play-Offs and include the Winmau World Masters Champion if not already Qualified.

The BBC contract for the BDO Lakeside World Professional Darts Championships has been extended by three years up to an including 2016.


Winmau and the BDO Celebrate 40th Anniversary at Lakeside!
Written by Robert Holmes - 25th January 2013.

For Winmau and the British Darts Organisation (BDO) life certainly begins at 40!

2013 is the 40th anniversary year of the BDO, and Winmau have been proud supporters of the BDO since its inception in 1973.

2013 also marks the 40th anniversary year of the Winmau World Masters in October, and Winmau and the BDO wanted to celebrate these amazing milestones with a bang!

Winmau have produced a unique version of their Blade 4 dartboard to celebrate the BDO’s 40 years at the forefront of the sport. This was presented to Sue Williams, Chairperson of the BDO, by Ian Flack, Sales and Marketing Director of Winmau, on the hallowed Lakeside stage.

Winmau and the BDO also announced a new initiative during Lakeside 2013 – the launch of the Winmau 9 Dart Club, with membership restricted to BDO players who hit the magic 9 Dart 501 in BDO and WDF majors and opens.

To mark this new initiative, Winmau have produced a commemorative set of darts for two players who have achieved the impressive feat in tournaments sponsored by the darts giant. The first was presented to John Walton, who recorded the first and only 9 dart 501 in the Winmau World Masters in 2007, and his darts were presented to him at the player’s luncheon at Lakeside 2013.

More recently Christian Pratt hit a 9 darter in the 2012 BDO Winmau British Classic and, like John, will receive a unique set of Winmau laser-etched tungsten darts in a laser-etched aluminium presentation case as a permanent keepsake.

"Winmau wanted to produce something special to add to the celebrations for the BDO's 40th anniversary year" says Ian Flack, "and what could be better than a personalised Blade board and the launch of a new exclusive 9 Dart Club with a commemorative set of darts in a presentation case (both uniquely laser-etched with the exclusive 9 Dart Club logo and player’s name). Our relationship with the BDO has spanned four decades and we can’t thank them enough for all they have done, and continue to do, for our sport.”

Sue Williams commented: "We are proud of our long and valued relationship with Winmau, and it is fitting that the BDO's 40th Anniversary Year also marks the same anniversary for the Winmau World Masters, the oldest established major on the BDO calendar. The BDO and Winmau represents the greatest 'double' in the history of world darts and we are delighted to be celebrating together throughout 2013."
