Darts News - Beaton^s Blog

May has been another busy month.

I qualified for the European Tour 4 in Austria at the beginning of the month in Wigan and had a great run to the Semi’s in it at the weekend.

I played Erwin Freidl in the first round and won 6-4.

I landed two 11 dart legs on my way to beating John Henderson 6-5 in the second.

A 6-1 victory over Kevin McDine in the third set me up for a clash against another World Champion Jelle Klaasen in the Quarters.

I won the battle of the Former World Champions 6-2 to reach my first European Tour Semi Final.

My opponent was Mervyn King and he punished me for missing four match darts in the deciding leg.

I was first to a double in the final leg but missed double 16 for a 102 finish and then three further darts at the bed, so Mervyn snatched the victory on double ten.

Michael Van Gerwen defeated Mervyn 6-3 in the final.

Congratulations to Michael who is a great player and is playing brilliant darts!!!

The previous weekend I made the Quarter Finals at the Pro Tour event on the Sunday by defeating Keith Rooney 6-4, Dan Russell 6-3, Ian White 6-4, Ronnie Baxter 6-0, then lost to Andy Smith 6-3.

Congratulations to Jamie Caven who had a fantastic double win over that weekend.

I also commentated for Eurosport on the first round matches of the Dubai Duty Free Masters.

I was part of a charity golf day in aid of the Afghanistan Trust hosted by The Wigley Group at the De-Vere in Staverton, Northamptonshire.

Shame about the weather, we all came in drenched but a big thank you to everyone who helped to make the whole day such a success.

I have also qualified for the European Tour 5 in Gibraltar at the end of June which is great news but first I am looking to take my present form in to the Speedy Services UK Open Finals at the reebok Stadium in Bolton later this week.

I would like to say a big thank you to my sponsors Winmau and The Wigley group for their continued support which is really appreciated.

Happy Darting
