Last year North East Darts Promotions held the first McClurg Scaffolding Ltd Darts Open at Grove & Moorside Club in Consett, County Durham. Players travelled far and wide to enter this newly formed competition, with Ryan Murray of Scotland scooping the £1000 First Prize.
2019 proved to be even better in terms of the standard, atmosphere and the stage finals, with many players and spectators staying to witness it.
The club features a large concert room with boards spaciously placed out allowing plenty of room for players, markers and spectators. The floor includes 8 boards and a large stage with another board. Drinks prices are very reasonably priced along with the added extra of hot food, made it a great day out for all.
Kicking off the competition, we were blessed to witness some super darts. Board 7 included players such as Carl Hamilton, David Gradwell, David Stokell, Terry Temple, Paul Williams and Darren Patton.
Carl ‘The Jackal’ Hamilton overcame David Gradwell, Martin Farmer, Terry Temple en route to his board final where he despatched Paul ‘The Jug’ Williams 4-3.
Andy ‘X-factor’ Boulton was on Board 1 and only dropped 2 legs en route to the quarter finals overcoming Tex Haughton from Cumbria in the board final.
Adam Hunt had a very tough opening game on Board 2 with Chris Vaughan wiring the doubles for a 153 and 158, with Adam capitalising to take the win 4-2. Then on he whitewashed the next two players before seeing off Craig ‘The Keg’ Anderson in the board final.
Board 3 included some more fantastic local players such as Tony Wood, Ray Marshall, Cameron Anderson, Keith Wright and Cumbrian, Harry Robinson. The young lad from Easington, Cameron Anderson proved to be in fine form. He faced his toughest test on his board in his opening game vs Jamie Berry, where he got over the line in 4-3. Once he settled, he kicked in and saw off experienced Harry Robinson 4-1, Matty Darroch 4-1 and defeated Ray Marshall in his board final 4-1.
Chris Quantock was the man to beat on Board 4, but had two very hard opening games, where he survived many match darts from the Scot, Lee Nisbet, to edge him 4-3. Next he faced Tyne & Wear County player, Billy Robson, in another 4-3 thriller in favour of the lad from York. Then on, he started to get in his groove and defeated County Durham player, Gary Croney 4-1 to reach the quarters.
Our eventual Runner up, William Borland only dropped 1 leg on Board 5 where he stormed to the quarter finals winning 4-0, 4-0, 4-0 and saw off County Durham player, Ray Foreman in the board final, 4-1.
Board 6 saw Chris Dominey take out a massive 167 finish in his opening games, but ran into the fantastic Kev McDine in the board semi finals. McDine was 3-1 down against Richie Archbold in his second game but battled back to take the win and comfortably qualified as the board winner.
Lastly, Board 8 saw Dave ‘The Badger’ Prins only drop 1 leg seeing off Sean Jowers 4-0, Andrew Heppell 4-0, Gary Lomas 4-0 and defeated John Kippen Jnr 4-1 in the board final.

As we entered the business end of the competition, the games took to the stage with both semi finals played separately. A big thank you to Andy Kelly for marking all the stage games and Chris Bradley for calling. A fantastic performance from Chris, who didn’t miss a trick.
The game of the day took place in the semi final, with two PDC players battling out and they threw everything at each other.
Chris Quantock vs Andy Boulton featured 6x 180s in 7 legs with a best leg of 11 darts from Chris. Andy was clinical in his finishing with his best leg coming in 13 darts and 18 darts his worst in 5 of his winning legs. Andy came out on top winning 5-2 to reach the final of the McClurg Scaffolding Ltd Darts Open.
Our second semi final saw William Borland whitewash Dave Prins, 5-0. His scoring was impeccable with his first 9 darts averaging 109.33. The finishing was not on par with the trebles, but he done what he had to do to setup the final against Andy.
Semi Final Results –
Andy Boulton (97.27 avg) 5-2 Chris Quantock (101.59 avg)
William Borland (86.38) 5-0 Dave Prins (80.48)
The final saw experience shine through, as the man from Stoke, who now resides in Scotland overcame the youngster. Their first 9 averages and overall averages were near enough identical, however, Boulton was more clinical on his finishing.
Final Result –
Andy Boulton (85.59) 5-2 William Borland (85.36)
