We are delighted to announce that those of our players that achieved 100% playing records and are able to attend, are now confirmed entrants for the Winmau World Masters 2017. The BDO published updated Alphabetic Lists of Entrants (alpha lists) today that can be viewed using the links below. We have just 3 players that have indicated their inability to take up their place so will be represented by the remaining 12 qualifiers.
Our qualifiers/entrants in each age/gender category follow:
Boys: Owen Bates * (Devon), Jimmy Bristow (Bristol), Alex Gurr (Sussex), Jakob Kelly (Essex), Dan Perry (Sussex), Tyler Radlett (Surrey), Taylor Smoldon (Glamorgan) and Jack Vincent (Essex).
Ladies: Bonnii Bentley * (Hampshire), Nicolle Bidgway * (Buckinghamshire) and Becky King (Sussex).
Men: Joshua Burksfield (Middlesex), Cavan Phillips (Glamorgan).
* Indicates player unable to take up their place.
In addition to those above, the winners of the Southern Youth Singles Championships, held recently at Lakeside, also qualify. Becky King, Ladies Champion, is already qualified by virtue of her 100% playing record. Jack Seymour (Hampshire) and Jack Fuller (Kent) are the U18 and U21 Champions respectively and have gained qualification.
Our congratulations go to all our direct qualifiers and also to those Southern Youth players that qualified for a place in the Winmau through competing in various qualifying events and by representing their Country at International level. We are not in a position to name all of them but some have been brought to our attention, namely Laura Shepherd (Cornwall), Jessica Bonner (Glamorgan), Ellie Larsson-Brown (London, previously Essex), Dylan Everson (Glamorgan), Mitchell McCarthy (Wiltshire), Darren Whelton (Glamorgan) and Lewis Williams (Glamorgan). Our very best wishes go to all of our players travelling to compete at the Bridlington Spa.
