BICC Catch-Up Games
An uncharacteristically quiet weekend for the BDO calendar will see three counties play their rearranged matches.
In the premier, Devon will play host to second-place Lancashire in their bid to avoid relegation, whilst Lancashire will be keen to bank as many points as they can, to hold off fourth-placed Glamorgan, who are nine points adrift with a game still to play.
London, currently sat 10 points clear of ninth-placed Surrey, will face Gwent at home in their quest to remain in Division 1. With Surrey still to face Essex, London will be looking for a good result to put as much distance between them as possible.
The final game of the weekend will see Gwynedd face Cleveland in Division 2. Eleven points currently separate the two teams, and with Cleveland sat in the relegation zone, the fight will be on to see who can emerge victorious and avoid joining Northumberland in Division 3 next season. Cleveland’s Allan Edwards, currently sat second in the Men’s ‘A’ divisional averages, will be looking for his ninth consecutive win of the season, to bank his place in the Winmau World Masters and World Professional play-offs later this year.
Across the pond, both Canada and the USA are hosting BDO ranked events. In the rolling table, Canada’s David Cameron is currently sat in 39th place, with the USA’s Jim Windmayer in 41st place. In the Women’s table the USA’s Paula Murphy, ranked 21st, is pressing for a World Championship place, with fellow American, Stacey Pace just behind in 38th position.
