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.

NIDO Masters Results

Well last Saturday was the NIDO Masters in The Standard Nortel Club Belfast. Great darts again with some new faces in the quarter finals and semi finals. Great to see the standard on the rise in the ladies, youth and mens.

Another superb turn out for this competition, with 131 men, 18 ladies and 14 youth.

Before the darts started there was a presentation to Area 13’s Warren Penney for hitting the first ever nine dart leg at the NI OPEN back in October. Even MVG, Gary Anderson and Raymond van Barneveld couldn’t do it at the NI Open. Well done Warren.

Then it was start of all the competitions with the standard of darts being as good as ever. A hearty well done to the executive and the people setting up the rooms for all the players with the ladies and youth having their own space, it made for a better playing environment.

The last 16 of the men’s comp to the final results were:

Gary Elliott 4 Nigel G Cahoon 1
Mark Yates 4 Roy Bailie 0 Paul McDonald 4 Andy Coulter 0
Simon Dunn 3 Stephen Moore 4

Chris Gracey 5 Rodney Kane 4
Josh Rock 1 Neil Duff 5


Semi Finals
Gary Elliott 3 Paul McDonald 5

Final
Paul McDonald 1 Neil Duff 6. Well done to Area 2’s Neil Duff who seems to be hoovering up competitions this last while continuing on from his exploits over Christmas. Unlucky to Area 2D’s Paul McDonald who came up short in the final but the scoreline flattered Duff and should have been closer. Paul must take heart from this result and on another day it might have went his way.

Grace Crane 4 Kelly Devlin 2
Jackie O’Neill 0 Denise Cassidy 4


Semi Finals
Elaine Moran 1 Anna Madigan 4

Final
Anna Madigan 0 Denise Cassidy 5. What more can I say about Denise Cassisy, she is head and shoulders above everyone else locally in Northern Ireland at the minute. Didnt lose a leg from the quarter final stage, yes that’s 13 legs in a row… Talent always rises to the the top.

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.
