Josh Rock wins 1st Ballyclare Linfield FC Supporters Club Darts Comp

Area 2d dart thrower Josh Rock won the competition last weekend, beating Coleraines Rodney Kane 5-2 in the final.

A worthy winner by all accounts, playing superb darts all day. This win backs up Josh’s selection for the Celtic Challenge tro take place this month. Josh sitting 6th in the overall NIDO average rankings is playing superb darts at the minute. Great to see Josh step up from the youth system and thrive on the mens tour and comps around the country.

Hard luck to Rodney who remarked ‘Josh was nice enough to let me win a couple of legs’.

78 players and £1200 prize money on the day, it was a great day planned out by Richard Kitson and the club. Thanks to all the board sponsors and the bar staff.

Charlie Gaile Results

The Charlie Gaile and Charlie Wright Pairs kicked off yesterday at The Drummond Hotel in Ballykelly and they had some great players in attendance, including Tony Martin, Jim Williams and PDC Tour Card holder and Euro Tour Winner Jamie Hughes, among others including some great local talent.

Area 2 player and NIDO youth player Sean Kearns (pictured with NIDO chairman Geoff Wylie) lifted the Youth competition at the Charlie Gaile yesterday playing awesome darts again.

He was followed by his Area 2 team mates Neil Duff and Chris Gilliland who won the Charlie Wright Pairs in the afternoon.

Unfortunately for Neil Duff after beating Jim Williams on route to the final in the Singles, he came unstuck against Tipton’s Jamie Hughes, going down 5-4. Unlucky Neil, onto the next one.

Beaten semi finalists were Donegal’s Dean Gallagher beat by Hughes and Chris Gilliland beat by Duff.

A great day out for all involved and again shows the class darts of Northern Ireland at the moment.

Kyle McKinstry wins Dunmurry Inn Competition on New Years Day

The New Year kicked off in style yesterday at the Dunmurry Inn with Area 9’s Kyle Mckinstry winning the competition.

Area 2’s Neil Duff was the runner up and took away £300 as a consolation prize. Kyle won £500 – just enough for his Q School Entry?

Over £1100 was paid out in prize funds, with 62 competitors it was a great day of darts.

Thanks to all at the Dunmurry Inn for running a successful day of darts and for the great service that was provided.
