In Dartsmania it would bring up some usual suspect and some surprise qualifiers as Brian Dawson would make his way into the final with some clinical darts which saw him go through to the world championship quarters at the lakeside and would beat fellow county player Andrew "the voice" Firth in the final and it would give Andy all but enough points to join Doggy there.
