Borthwick, Champion of the Globe!

Fresh off the back of a long week at PDC Q-School, Consett thrower Phil ‘Philyerboots’ Borthwick comes out on top of a 52 player field that included the likes of Ryan Joyce and Adam Hunt.

As usual, the Globe FA Cup competition provided some tasty draws in the early rounds. Ryan Joyce faced Jack Pattinson in a prelim game, with Jack recently putting in a good performance at Q-School and narrowly missed out on the second stage. Pattinson carried on his fine form and battled back from 2-1 down to defeat Joyce 3-2.
Davey Gradwell battled back against Adam Hunt, in another prelim game, coming back from 2-1 down himself, to take the victory.

There was a fantastic mix of talent in the room from all over the North East, with Gary Hayes and Gary Stephens traveling up from Middlesbrough and Jack Pattinson making the hour-long trip from Allendale, South West Northumberland.

As we moved into the later stages, the last 16 onwards was ‘Best of 7’. Gary Hayes registered an estimated 104 average in a 4-0 whitewash of Ryan Hanratty. Northumberland County player, Andy Parks came from 3-2 down to beat Scott Hunt 4-3. Borthwick was taken to a last-leg decider by Tyne & Wear Youth player, Mason Harmer, but came out victorious.

The semi-finals produced some great games, with Borthwick and Davie fighting through to face each other in the Globe Final.

A crucial break in the latter stages of the final was enough for ‘Philyerboots’ to take the £240 winners prize and a Bottle of Grey Goose for his efforts!

As always, a great day The Globe, Gateshead. Well ran by Craig Larvin and fantastic hospitality from Ian and Michelle. We’re back at The Globe on Saturday 19th February.

Ryan Joyce joins Mission Darts

Mission Darts are thrilled to announce the signing of Ryan ‘Relentless’ Joyce who is currently ranked number 38 in the world.

Darryl Fitton, Mission Darts Player Development Manager, is impressed by his performance and recent history: “Ryan reached the Quarter Finals in his debut appearance at the World Championship in 2019, taking out three seeded players on the way. This year he’s reached the last 16 of the Grand Slam, the last 64 of the UK Open, and the last 32 of the Players Championship Finals.”

“In July 2020, Ryan won his first PDC title at the Summer Series Pro Tour event, defeating Dave Chisnall in the final. In 2020 he also reached the last 32 of the World Matchplay, and the last 16 of the World Grand Prix.”

Ryan, who is from Newcastle, England, commented: “Joining Team Mission is simply the right choice for me. Mission are dedicated to creating great products and they’re a growing brand; I’m proud that we can take that journey together!”

Outside of the major tournaments Ryan has reached three BDO ranked event finals, the first was the 2013 Turkish Open, then the Isle of Man Open in 2016, and the Denmark Masters in 2016.

He won the Turkish open pairs in 2013, the Welsh open pairs 2015, and reached the final of the British open pairs in 2016.  In 2017 he won the Scottish open pairs and the BDO Gold cup singles tournament.

We look forward to seeing what the future holds! #ForTheWin

Relentless Rules Again

The Sky Lounge is now a permanent fixture in the North East Darting scene, boasting one of the best setups around fuelled with an even better atmosphere.

Saturday 4th December saw 64 participants go head-to-head using the new Darts Atlas software. The software involved tablet scoring, with real-time scores and bracket updates for spectators. This new bit of kit will be used in all North East Darts Promotions events moving forward.

On the day we saw a mix of old and new faces, as well as some fantastic performances. Angela Kirkwood came from 3-1 down in her opening game to defeat County Durham A player, Jack Kirtland, 4-3.

Jock Lyons rolled back the years defeating in-form youngster, Jack Male by 4 legs to 1, registering an impressive 80 avg in the process.

As we edged into the later stages, Consett thrower, Andrew Heppell defeated one of the favourites, David Gradwell in the last 32.

Adam Hunt and Ryan Joyce both moved comfortably into the last 16, both only dropping 1 leg in the two opening rounds.

Joyce started to turn the screw in the last 16 as he brushed aside another in-form player in Paul Nesbitt. Nesbitt battled back in the middle of the game registering a 14-darter, but ‘Relentless’ held strong and to see out the game 4-1.

Hunt went up against WDF Lakeside qualifier, Dave Prins in the tie of the quarters, which proved to be a cracker. Going all the way down to a decider and Prins leaving 36 for the match and ‘The Hunter’ took out 113 to seal the victory.

Both Hunt and Joyce moved comfortably into the final, beating their opponents 5-0 and 5-1, respectively.

The final saw the two PDC pros go head-to-head once again in a Sky Lounge Open Final. Hunt registered 4x 180s in 7 legs and their averages were near on identical, but Joyce proved clinical in the finishing department and ran away with the win, 5-2.

As always, thank you to the Sky Lounge for their hospitality.

Thanks to Paul Lawson, Ali Patton, Stephen Mallams and Michelle for their support in setup, organising and support.

See everyone in 2022 for the next North East Darts Promotions Event.
