James Beeton wins the Youth High Performance Roofing Open

England’s James Beeton has won the High Performance Roofing Open after a commanding win over Dylan Slevin (yesterdays youth winner) by a score of 4-1.

James averaged 88 in the final and much was made of his unusual style with the back leg lifting off very much like Mensur Suljovic or Richie Burnett. But it didnt stop him hitting the double 9 and winning the title, seems to work for James.

Well done James Beeton!

Fallon Sherrock wins Ladies Winmau Irish Open

England’s Fallon Sherrock put on a commanding display in the category A+ final of the Ladies Winmau Irish Open 6-1 against Kirsty Hutchinson.

Kirsty put out Aileen De Graf in the semi finals 5-2 but couldn’t live up to Fallon’s heavy and consistent scoring. As we said yesterday Fallon looked to be in great form and proved it today. After putting out Ana Dobromyslova 5-1 again she only dropped one leg in the final averaging 15 points more than Kirsty.

To win the match she set up a 132 finish and took it on the bullseye!

Fallon must be a real dark horse for the BDO Ladies World Championship at the Indigo O2 in January.

Commiserations Kirsty and very well done to Fallon Sherrock.

The match went to 2-2 when Sherrock and Green went ahead 3-2 but allowed Hedman and Winstanley back in it at 3-3 for a last leg playoff.

Hedman and Winstanley were far steadier in the final leg and Lorraine won it on double top with one dart, straight in the lipstick.

Fallon Sherrock looked in great form and will be one to be reckoned with over the weekend, but tonight the birthday girl Deta Hedman got the win with her throwing partner Lorraine Winstanley.
