     BDO World Trophy 2017


The 2017 BDO World Trophy reached its conclusion today on the South Wales coast at the  Memo Arts Centre in Barry Town.
Four days of high quality darting action saw Holland's Aileen De Graaf and Australian Peter Machin crowned World Trophy Champions for the very first time.
De Graaf was absolutely faultless in the early part of her victory over Anastasia Dobromyslova in the Ladies Final, but eventually captured the title with a 6-2 win. Aileen was in control for the first four legs  of the match, hitting big scores and finishing well, then in a nervy 5th leg  she missed darts at a double but wasn't punished by Anastasia whilst in leg 6 she missed darts to clinch the title and her Russian opponent eventually got a leg on the board. Nerves seemed to be getting the better of the Dutch girl as Anastasia pulled back another leg to trail 5-2. Leg 8 and the nerves continued from both players on the finishing, but it was Aileen who eventually hit double 11 to claim the title of BDO Ladies World Trophy Champion 2017.
Earlier in the day both players enjoyed semi finals wins, De Graaf defeating compatriot Anca Zijlistra 5-2 and Dobromyslova winning a last leg decider to overcome Deta Hedman 5-4, where Deta missed darts to take the win.
In the men's Final Machin was looking to go one better than last year and lift the title and in his way was home favourite Martin Philips Martin had beaten fellow Welshman Nick Kenny in the semi final 8-5 whilst Machin produced a brilliant comeback from 4-0 down to beat Dutchman Wesley Harms 8-6 to reach his second World Trophy Final. Harms himself had produced his own great escape in the Quarter Finals where he overturned a 4-0 deficit to stun World Champion Glen Durrant.
Philips took control of the final early on to take a 4-2 lead over Machin and despite a 180 from the Australian at the back end of leg 7 Phillips hit double two to stretch his lead further to 5-2. Peter took the next two legs including a 149 finish in the 9th leg after Philips failed to set up a bullseye finish to reduce the deficit to 5-4. The response from the Welshman was immediate with an 86 checkout to break throw, 6-4 Philips. Machin does the same in the next leg, this final was still anyone's. The pair share maximums in leg 12 with Philips hitting back to back 180’s and with doubles missed by both players It's Martin who made it 7-5, three legs away from the title. Back comes Machin and it's 7-7. You could feel the tension in the arena as both players were so close to a major BDO title. Philips back in front at 8-7 but a brilliant 141 checkout from the Australian and we were level at 8 all. A break of throw and Machin is one leg away from glory. Double 2 from Machin in the next leg and he's done it, he's the World Trophy Champion 2017. What a final it was and well done to all players who competed to make this such a great event once again.

Another fascinating and intriguing day of darts unfolded at the Memo Arts Centre, Barry, as the BDO World Trophy Second Round was completed in both the Men’s and Ladies events.
The day started with Ross Montgomery bossing Willem Mandigers and despite a lapse in concentration midway through the game, the Scot came through 6-4 to book his place in the Quarter Finals. Joining Ross in the last 8 is young Welsh star Nick Kenny, who couldn’t believe it himself that he whitewashed his opponent, Canada’s Jeff Smith. Nick was simply too strong in all departments and once again delighted the home crowd. Also enjoying playing at home is veteran Martin Philips, number 2 seed Mark McGeeney simply had no chance today, winning only one leg in the match. Philips played simply brilliant darts and hit the treble twenty at will and was seven darts down the line for a perfect 9 dart leg, there’s always next time Martin !
Holland’s Wesley Harms came from behind to win the last 5 legs and dispatch James Hurrell 6-3 and will face Lakeside World Champion Glen Durrant in the Quarters after Glen ended the hopes of the Viking Andy Fordham 6-2, but it was so pleasing to see Andy playing so well again and challenging for major honours once more.
Last years runner up Peter Machin is at it again, the cool Australian stopping Scott Mitchell in his tracks  as he moves closer to yet another final appearance. However there’s a Wolf waiting for him in the last 8, the legend that is Martin Adams had too much experience for young Welshman Dean Reynolds and despite a little blip Wolfie hit the winning double for a 6-4 victory. What a story it would be if Adams could add another BDO Major to his CV. There would be no more a popular winner.
There was a nail biter earlier in the day too as Conan Whitehead rode his luck and took advantage of missed match darts from Darius Labanauskus to scrape through 6-5 !
In the Ladies event, Wales Rhian Griffiths who was simply perfect in Round One with her finishing didn’t enjoy those stats today, doubles missed proved very costly and opponent Aileen De Graaf took full advantage, winning 4-1. Aileen will play compatriot Anca Zijlstra who was in giant killing mode again and despite being below par she had enough to beat Trina Gulliver 4-1.
World Number One Deta Hedman looked at one stage to be on her way home, but she’s not the number one for nothing and some cool finishing brought her a 4-2 success over Rachel Brooks. Deta opponent in the semi finals will be Anastasia Dobromyslova, the number 4 seed halting the run of Australia’s Corrine Hammond 4-1.
Monday will see the climax of both events, as we play down to determine who will be our 2017 BDO World Trophy Champions. The action gets underway at 1pm and play continues right through, culminating in the final of both men’s and ladies competitions. Make sure you don’t miss it, coverage continues on Front Runner TV, Winmau TV and Unilad on Facebook, you will see every dart thrown and there’s tickets still available on the door, so get yourselves down to The Memo Arts Centre in Barry, South Wales and witness history in the making as we crown our champions.

What a fantastic first days action we’ve had in the BDO World Trophy from The Memo Arts Centre in Barry, South Wales.
Whilst we had a few early hiccups with sound and vision with our coverage, which was soon sorted by our broadcaster Fronter runner, there were no such hiccups on the oche. The World Trophy has traditionally thrown up some surprises and shocks and the 2017 event hasn’t disappointed, no more so than the Men’s and Ladies defending Champions Darryl Fitton and Lisa Ashton being dumped out in Round One by Conan Whitehead and Anca Zijlstra respectively. Darryl never really got out of first gear, but Conan was very impressive to say the least and enjoyed a 6-3 triumph. Ladies World Champion Ashton led 2-0 and looked comfortable, but then Anca had other ideas and held her nerve to win a deciding leg and go through 4-3.
Earlier in the day Number 3 seed Jamie Hughes had no answer to the consistency of Canada’s Jeff Smith and succumbed to a 6-2 loss. Danny Noppert who opened the competition was also eliminated, Willem Mandigers winning 6-4. One of the best performances of the day though came from ‘local girl’ Rhian Griffiths, whilst Rhian has been enjoying some good form of late, she was truly inspired today in front of her home crowd and produced a flawless display of finishing that left one of the favourites Lorraine Winstanley clutching for air ! Rhian through 4-0 with 100% on finishing. Wales’ Martin Philips and Nick Kenny also delighted the Welsh crowd and booked their places in Round Two.
Dutch Open Champion Mark McGeeney enjoyed a comfortable win over Wouter Vaes and must be in with a great chance of lifting another big title and Scotlands Ross Montgomery ended the action on Day One with a 6-3 success over American Joe Chaney, who had arrived late at the venue after travel problems. Not a great day for Joe !
Day Two of the BDO World Trophy continues tomorrow with the action getting underway in Barry from 1pm and features Glen Durrant, Scott Mitchell, Martin Adams, Deta Hedman and Corrine Hammond as they set off in their quest of more darting glory.

The BDO's very best dart players are heading for the seaside this bank holiday weekend to compete in the fourth staging of the
BDO World Trophy. The seaside resort of Barry on the South Wales coast will be welcoming players from around the world, but sand castles and deck chairs will be far from their minds, with the temperature set to reach boiling point on the oche at The Memo Arts Centre, the venue that's hosting one of the big BDO flagship events. The event kicks off on Friday 26th May and on the opening day will feature last years winner of the Men's trophy Darryl 'The Dazzler' Fitton who will be aiming to repeat his triumph, but it's not going to be easy ! Fitton opens his campaign against young rising star Conan Whitehead, who will be hoping to go 'One Step Beyond' Also on the opening day, along with number 7 seed Fitton we will also see Mark McGeeney who's enjoyed a rich vain of form recently and the Dutch Open Champion seeded number 2 will face off against Wouter Vaes. The Midlands' Jamie Hughes, the 3rd seed tackles former Lakeside runner up Jeff Smith, the Canadian having to go through the Qualifiers to get his place in Barry. Lakeside World Champion Glen Durrant is the number one seed and big favourite to add yet another title to his ever growing list. 'Duzza' is in action on the Saturday and will do battle with fellow Englishman Brian Dawson. Add in to the mix the likes of Martin Adams, Scott Mitchell, Scott Waites, Dean Reynolds and it has all the ingredients to be one of the best World Trophy events there's been. 
The Worlds greatest female players will of course be there too and their event with England's World Champion Lisa Ashton defending her title, promises to be just as exciting ! So many of the leading ladies have tasted success recently and in particular Lorraine Winstanley, Deta Hedman, Sharon Prins, Aileen De Graaf and Corrine Hammond will all fancy their chances ! The ladies also get underway on Friday and if you can't make it to the Memo Arts Centre in person, then you can follow every dart live as it's thrown through our extensive tv coverage with broadcaster Front Runner, which can be found on the Sky TV platform and also Freeview and if that's not enough we will be streaming the action live with our partners Winmau TV and also for the first time with Unilad on Facebook, so there's no excuse not to miss out on what it is one of the greatest darts events on the BDO calendar.

the BDO World Trophy there and on Freeview Channel 91"
