Darts News – A West Midlands Round Up By Alan Towe

This coming weekend county darts teams throughout the country will  kick off their new season in the BDO Inter County Championships and as it has been for the last six seasons Warwickshire will open up with a premier division game against reigning champions Yorkshire. Last season’s 20-16 defeat was the best result Warwickshire have had in the six previous games and so with home advantage at the Bishopsgate Club, Foleshill Road, Coventry the local team will be looking to chalk up their first win over their visitors in seven games.
Selected to play in the opening game are Men’s ‘A’:- Bob Nixon, Dean Stewart, Richard Foster, Jamie Atkins, Jamie Hughes, Mark Carter, Mark Strong, Mark Westgarth, Noel Grant, Rob Hawker, Tom Aldridge, William Naylor, Men’s ‘B’:- Antony Allen, Carl Green, Ted Evetts, Matt Edgar, Prakash Jiwa, Paul Deslandes, Simon Power, Steve Ward, Tom McGlone, Luke Kennedy, Ian Shaw, Luis Barberan, Reserves:- Dan Green, Jimmy Hill, Tom Martin, Chris Gallagher, Mark Archer, Women’s ‘A’:- Denise Keyte, Wendy Adams, Donna Pinch, Kat Spanswick, Natalie Gilbert, Women’s ‘B’:- Lisa Whitmore, Lucy Keyte, Marian Conway, Kerry Bambridge, Kirsty Haw, Nina Bolt, Reserves:- Sue Sandher.
A final reminder to everyone there will be a pre match fund raising half hour prior to Warwickshire’s game when Kaya Holdsworth, daughter of Warwickshire county player Edwina Holdsworth will be having a complete head shave.
As Kaya has previously stated she is doing this because in January her mother was diagnosed with liver and bowel cancer and also some of her family members have also been affected by cancer and she wants to give something back to the nurses who have and still are doing a fantastic job with people being affected by cancer.
Furthermore Kaya is also looking into donating her ponytail to make wigs for people with cancer.
Anyone wishing to support this very courageous twenty years old young lady and wish to donate to a wonderful and worthy cause please follow the link  alternatively just turn up to the game and donate to Kaya’s cause and at the same time support both her and Warwickshire.
In division two of the BDO Inter County Championships West Midlands begin their fixture list with an away game against local rivals Staffordshire who are newly relegated from division one so it will be no easy task for the away side who last season struggled in the first half of their fixtures winning just one of their first six games.

It may appear from the league table that Kevin Harris with a further 6-1 win over Andy Whale and a 5-2 success against Kenny West giving him a total of 181 points in the Winmau Centre Thursday Night Champions League is running away with the top prize of £300 pounds as he is currently 26 points ahead of second placed Rob Harris, but that isn’t necessarily so as third placed Mick O’Neill who with 154 points is 27 behind Harris, has five games in hand and with a possible seven points from each game he could take his total to 189 and also Kevin Lane who is fifth in the table with 139 points has nine games in hand and he could reach a total of 202 when he catches up, so the title is far from being decided at this stage but games are fast running out and at the end of the day it will be points that count.
