Come on the North East lads

The PDC World Championships kicked off on Friday with 96 names in the hat competing for a staggering £500,000 first prize.

We have four North East lads in action, with two making their debuts. Tonight sees Bedlington ace Callan Rydz take to the stage against the Irishman, Steve Lennon.

Rydz goes into tonight’s game full of confidence after securing a two year PDC tour card via the PDC Challenge Tour. We have seen him perform against the elite this year taking some big scalps on the floor, now he takes to the biggest stage of all to show everyone what he can do.

The other debutant, is none other than 3x BDO World Champion, Glen Durrant. Glen has been the stand out performer in his debut year and already broke into the top 32 with a whopping £176,500 on his order of merit.

Duzza faces a tough second round test on Saturday evening against either Jose Sousa of Portugal or Australia’s, Damon Heta.

Joining Rydz and Durrant at Ally Pally, are the two Geordie lads, Chris Dobey and Ryan Joyce. Both lads had a fantastic World’s last year, with Dobey reaching the last 16 and Joyce making the quarters.

Watch all games live on Sky Sports kicking off tonight with Callan Rydz.

Relentless claims Cottles Crown

Following on from Friday’s finals night, Cottles Bar in Willington held its annual Sunday Finals day with the top 16 players over the 8 week competition, competing for the £500 1st Prize.

With a whopping £1,800+ in the prize pot, all 16 players were rewarded well.

Ryan Joyce was looking in great form defeating Scott Hunt, Gary Lomas and Adam Hunt en route to the final. Some big ton plus finishes on the way proved vital.

The man in his way was Tony Wood, taking part in his second final this weekend, and it was a cracker. The match went all the way, with a key 171 to leave 70 by Joyce in the deciding leg looked to be enough. However, Wood followed with 180 to leave 57.

Joyce made no mistakes and took out 70 in two, to be crowned the champion.
