North East players on Tour

There was quite a bit of action outside of the North East this weekend, with many players taking part in the PDC Challenge Tour, Welsh Open and even further afield in Germany for the PDC European Darts Grand Prix.

Kicking off the action on Friday was Chris Dobey, Glen Durrant and Dave Prins, who all qualified for the European Darts Grand Prix in Sindelfingen, Germany.

Prins was narrowly defeated 6-4 by Vincent Van Der Voort in the first game of the evening session. Following straight after was ‘Hollywood’ Chris Dobey, who whitewashed Madars Razma 6-0 in fine fashion recording a 103 average.
The last game of the session was 3x Lakeside Champion, Glen Durrant vs Ryan Searle. Duzza was in complete control of the game but Ryan Searle took out finishes of 110, 119 and 112 to take the win 6-4.
On Saturday, Dobey faced Premier League player, Daryl Gurney in Round 2 and stormed to a 5-2 lead. However, missing many match darts, the North Irishman came back and nicked the win 6-5. Overall, good darts played by all North East lads and positive for Chris moving forward with his new setup.

Back here in England, the PDC Challenge Tour 5-8 was taking place in Wigan with a boat load of North East players in attendance. The stand out performer of the weekend, was youngster, Callan Rydz from Bedlington who threw some sublime darts and hit some ridiculous averages in the process.
The first tournament of the weekend was PDC Challenge Tour 5 and Rydz kicked off in some style, recording averages of 93, 95 and 110 in his opening encounters. In the latter stages of the tournament, he defeated Swedish Tour player, Dennis Nilsson in the quarter finals with a 97 average to setup an all North East tie against Andy ‘Charlie’ Chalmers.
Chalmers himself was in top form, who dropped only 5 legs in his first 5 matches of PDC Challenge Tour 5, with his whitewashing of Barry Lynn the highlight. In the quarter finals, he defeated Northern Irishman and BDO World Championship quarter finalist, Kyle McKinstry 5-2 to set up the match vs Rydz.
Chalmers took the first leg against Rydz in 17 darts before Rydz stormed to a 3-1 lead with 3x 14 darters. Chalmers fought back in 16 darts but Callan was too strong and took the win with a 12 and 18 darter, respectively.
Callan faced Scottishman, Darren Beveridge in the final, who is managed by Tommy Gilmour (Dunvegan Enterprises). It proved to be a fantastic game and unlucky for Callan, as he  left 32 after 9 in the 7th leg and didn’t get another shot. The Scot took the win 5-4 in the end but a great run for the youngster and valuable money added to his rankings.

A roundup of the weekend for Callan included a Final, a Quarter Final, last 16 and last 32. He picked up money in every tournament this weekend and now sits 10th in the Challenge Tour Order of Merit.

Andy Chalmers had a great weekend as well, with Challenge Tour 5 his best run. He also cashed in 2 other tournaments that included a last 64 and in the last tournament of the weekend, a last 32 place. In Challenge Tour 8, the final tournament of the weekend, Chalmers had a very hard run to the last 32. He faced seasoned challenge Tour player, Lee Budgen in round one and defeated him 5-4. Next, he faced Welsh World Champion, Richie Burnett and despatched him 5-1. Carrying on his fine form, Kolstov was in his way, the Russian World Championship Qualifier and again he put in a great performance and another deciding leg win.
In the last 32, he arguably played his best darts of the weekend but was pipped to the post by Scott Taylor in a 5-4 thriller.

Chalmers added some valuable money to his rankings and now sits 24th in the rankings enabling him to enter the PDC European Qualifiers next month.

Dave Prins was another North East player who performed this weekend, notably in the final tournament of the weekend, Challenger Tour 8. He made the semi finals tonight and knocked out some great players en route, such as Nick Fullwell and Jimmy Hendriks. In the Quarter Finals, Prins was up against Paul Rowley, who’s a top player on his day. The tie was 4-4 with Rowley sitting on 25 for the match. ‘The Badger’  took out a huge 156 for a 12 darter to win and put himself into the semi finals. However, that was as far as he ran in the competition, but again, valuable money added to his rankings.

Prins secures himself in 9th position in Order of Merit, one place above Callan Rydz.

Also, not forgetting other players who performed this weekend……

Dave Stokell cashing in Challenge Tour 6 getting defeated by eventual Winner, Cameron Menzies 5-3 in the last 32. He also cashed in Challenge Tour 7 bowing out in the last 64.

Carl Hamilton & Craig Anderson also made the last 64 in Challenge Tour 7.
