Urwin wins Felling Cricket Club Christmas Darts Open


Writeup courtesy of Danny McAtominey

“Where do you start after night like that in the FCC Christmas Darts Open! An event which usually attracts a good smattering of locals on the Friday between xmas and new year went off the map last night. We knew we were in for a good night at 6.45 as the club filled up but to attract 64 players from all across the region was unbelievable. From Seaham Harbour, Stanley, Sunderland, Washington, Jarrow, Hebburn, Gateshead, Dunston, Swallwell, Blaydon and Newcastle together with a good number of local players it was more like a big Saturday open.

With such a field and FA Cup draw there were bound to be some heavyweight clashes and the draw for the early rounds saw some brilliant darts. The quarter finals brought together a top line up of players with Jason Urwin, Michael McBain, Callum Stokell and Chris Vaughan progressing to the last 4. Jason and Chris made it through to the final where despite a valiant effort from Chris it was defending champion Jason Urwin who took the title again with a 4-1 win, the only leg he dropped in the entire night. Sincere thanks to all the players and supporters who turned up from near and far, the spirit on the night was first class from all those involved, never heard one whinge, proper darts players though.

To manage to push through 63 matches on five boards in just four hours is a testament to all the players involved and the brilliant desk staff who kept things moving seamlessly all night. Massive thanks to Laura, Jen, Darren, Dan and Jason for all their hard work, brilliant team effort. Not forgetting Leanne who managed the bar and Jo for pitching in when we were snowed under. Here’s to the next one, all the best for 2019 everyone.”
