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.

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.

Under 18's: North 5-6 South
Girls: North 3-2 South
Under 21's: North 5-2 South
Please be advised that, due to exceptional circumstances, West Midlands are regrettably unable to fulfil their outstanding fixtures in the Southern Youth Darts Division 3. West Midlands have now decided after much deliberation to withdraw from the League. We appreciate that this hasn't been an easy decision for them to come to and we wish the players and officials all the best and hope that they will be in a position to one day re-join us.
We will, as per the rules, withdraw all points for all West Midlands games (please see Page 12 of the rules available on the website).
Revised tables are being compiled as we speak for Division 3 and will be released today.
This will not affect players who may be looking at winning 100% of their games as this will take this back to it being 8 out of 8.
The North v South competition will take place on Sunday 11th June 2017 at the Staffordshire venue, The White Eagle Club, Riverway, Stafford ST16 3TH.
Register by 11:00 a.m. for a 12 noon start.
Would all Counties please check that their players are listed correctly in the Averages. I was recently made aware of 2 players that had multiple entries and to the best of my knowledge, these have been corrected.
Errors should be notified to me at the email address provided to you.
