From PDC Site –
“Event Eight saw Rydz win his first PDC title, which he began in perfect style, conceding just one leg in his opening five matches en route to the quarter-finals where he edged out Kevin Doets 5-4.
The rising Newcastle star then defeated Mike de Decker 5-3, before a sensational 106.6 average saw him get the better of World Championship quarter-finalist Luke Humphries 5-2 in the final game of the day.”

Yesterday, Jack Male travelled to Chesterfield for the England Darts Youth event. Jack had already tasted success in these events, where he won one event out of the three he played last year, in Gateshead.
In his group stage, Jack won 2 of his 3 group games (3-0 against Eleanor Cairs and a 3-0 against Tavis Dudeney), narrowly losing to Henry Coates 3-2 after missing darts to win from 2-0 down. However, other results meant he still finished top of his group.
The last 32 saw Jack take on Holly Meadwell, who he despatched 3-0 with some high scoring and solid finishing. The same score lines followed in the last 16 and quarter finals, against Reece Pauling and Dalton Storr, respectively. Jack fired in finishes of 156 and 157 on the way.
In the semi finals, Jack faced Luke ‘The Nuke’ Littler, seeking revenge after Luke recently beat him at a JDC tour event. Jack moved past Luke 4-1 and moved into the final.
In the final, Jack faced JDC European Champion Brad Phillips, in a repeat of Jack’s final win last year. It was nip and tuck all the way through with both players at a very high standard, but just like he did last year, Jack emerged victorious with a 5-3 win. In his first England event of 2019, Jack masked the best start he could do in the hunt to make the finals at the end of the year, which he finished runner up in 2018.
Following on from their fantastic ‘Grand Slam Pairs’ victory in 2018, Harry Robinson & David Gradwell went all the way in the Pairs comp at Sky Lounge on Saturday.
The day consisted of 24 pairs split into 4 groups of 6. Each pair had 5 group games, with the top 2 qualifying for the knockout stages.
In the groups, Robinson & Gradwell won all 5 games only dropping 3 legs en route to the knockouts. They faced Runners up in Group C, McDine & Lawson in the quarters and defeated them 4-1.
Already proving to be the strongest pair on the day, they carried on their form into the semi finals, despatching Matthews & Craig Anderson before facing their group runners up In the final.
It proved to be a much tighter affair than the group game, however, they dug deep and defeated Shanks and Rydz to take the title and the £400 first prize.

Lastly, a big shout out to Matthew Hodgson who kept the competition running as smoothly as possible and supported me throughout the day.
Another great competition was held at Sky Lounge in Washington on Saturday 30th March. With only 4 days notice, the competition attracted 51 players with some of the best talent in the region taking part.
Kev McDine was too strong on the day, as he despatched Craig Anderson in the quarters before beating Ryan Joyce 5-1 in the Semi Finals.
The final saw him up against Tony Wood. The tie went the distance, with McDine edging out Wood in the decider to take the win.
