The Pontefract masters sponsored by United Sports & Promotions
With a quality field that turned up to the gem of a tournament it could only make a world class last 8 and so it did with Carl Wilkinson fresh of his Barnsley Open success making quick work of Chesterfield Pete Daffin with a 4-1 victory after going behind.Tom Sykes produced a game from the gods as he beat current Yorkshire Classic champion Pete Jacques 4-0 to advance also and he was joined by fellow USP team mate Darren Johnson after winning a tough battle with Tony Darlow 4-2 and the last man to make the semi final was Dave Copley going through 4-2 over ~Dave Stoner.
The semi finals got into gear as Darren Johnson went through 5-3 over the Dark Knight to book his final spot and he would be joined by Carl Wilkinson who edged out Tom Sykes 5-4 in an absolute thriller of a game to set up a great final.Darren drew first blood winning against the arrows before Carl levelled but then Daren would go 4-1 up and Carl would pull one back in a leg where he missed the 8th dart for a 9 dart leg to make it 4-3 with Darren winning the next to lead 5-3 and then beat carl in the next after a tremendous match and become 2015 Pontefract masters champion.The plate championship would be won by Mark Lawrence beating Curtis Turner in the final.

We Headed to Scunthorpe for the Mulligans open Sponsored by Mulligans Bar and again a quality field came out to play.......
The first Quarter final was a very tight game as Tom Sawford led 3-1 only to see his lead drawn back as Mick Dawson pulled it back to win 4-3 and would meet Mark Wadey Wilson who threw a stormer to see off the very Talented Dave Ladley 4-0.Darren Johnson continued his terrific form with a 4-1 victory over the very talented youngster James Brumpton and Carl Wilkinson would beat Neil Ward to make up the other semi final.So we had a repeat of the Pontefract Masters final only 6 days before and it was the same result as Dynamite would go through and he would meet Mark Wilson who continued in fine form representing the venue with a 4-2 semi final victory to set up a cracking looking final as both men hammered the treble 20 bed with the first four legs going with the arrows before mark missed a crucial double for an 11 dart leg only to see DJ take it with a 13 to edge a 3-2 lead which he maintained by taking the next two legs for a 5-2 victory which could have been closer but great darts by both men as Darren took another title at the venue after the Scunthorpe open and Scunthorpe Masters.The plate competiton was won by Mick Roberts beating Doncasters Nigel woldsfold in the final 4-3.
