ENGLAND DARTS YOUTH INITIATIVES

We at England Darts are excited to announce new initiatives to cultivate the future stars in our sport, the amazing youth have made some massive achievements in recent times, from 9 darters and BDO Tournament wins and other amazing achievements shows the youth have the future of our sport in safe hands! We believe that the announcement of the following three announcements show our organisations commitment to the youth players in our system.

The first initiative involved one our invitational events, The England Matchplay held annually at the England Classic weekend in September at Selsey. For the past few years it has invited 8 Boys and 4 Girls into the event through the England Youth Rankings. We have now agreed to increase the number of invitations to 12 boys and 8 girls, with some changes in the qualifying for the event. The winners from all of our events including the winners from our second initiative will all receive invites as well as the top players from the England Rankings and our Overall Grand Prix Tables giving players more chances to receive an invite and players who choose not to play County Youth a viable chance to qualify for this event. We are happy with this increase over the whole weekend 24 different youth players have the opportunity to play on our stream with the England Classic Youth finals but are guaranteed to have at least 20 faces get some exposure through.

Our second announcement is a brand new competition for the Youth players, for the past few years England Darts have been hosting the British Pentathlon since the retirement of the events Founder Sam Hawkins and we are pleased to announce we will now be bringing the event to Boys and Girls in a world’s first for the pentathlon format. The 1,480 prize fund event will take place in Hull in December with the Boys and Girls events taking place side by side with each other with 10 of the top boys and 10 top girls in the England Darts System taking part. As a further reward to players loyal to our events the top 8 in the overall Grand Prix tables at the end of the season will receive an invite to this event along with the two final spots being announced in due course. We are delighted to have Carl South on board with him proving the venue at The New Trinity Club in Hull after he hosted one of our recent Grand Prix Events.

Our final announcement comes in the form of a new annual award in memory of two people with massive involvements with England Darts sadly no longer with us. At England Darts we value all players but those who try  to improve their game and play the game in a sporting manner we believe deserves to be rewarded. The Julie Vickers Memorial Award and the Gerry Haywood Memorial Award will reward one boy & one girl each year, we would like to thank all those that have donated to England Darts for the Youth in the past couple of weeks, they have helped get these plans off the ground In a short time, personally my thanks goes to our recently retired officials Don Vickers & Dawn Speed who have made generous donations as their parting gifts and to the England Internationals past & present that have also donated back into the system they have represented so well at International Level including Fallon Sherrock, James Hurrell, Daniel Day and Glen Durrant along with others who have wished to remain anonymous, we appreciate their support in helping provide opportunities for youth players across the country. Our final thanks goes to our amazing Youth Ambassador, Deta Hedman who also made a generous donation with the stipulation we introduce the Julie Vickers & Gerry Haywood Memorial Awards, and her support for the youth game has been phenomenal.

If you wish to make a donation or would like to be a board sponsor, event sponsor or season sponsor, don’t hesitate to contact Deta or any one of the England Officials, we are also looking for venue s that would want to host a Youth Grand Prix Event in 2020 and should contact one of our officials or Bradley Kirk via email at bkirkenglanddarts@gmail.com

ISLE OF MAN FESTIVAL

England has to clarify that the Isle of Man 2020 will be held at the Villa Marina, between Thursday 12th March to Sunday 15th March inclusive. This is a change from the published date on the BDO and England Diaries.

The confusion has resulted by a combination of conflicting correspondence, which we didn't check before the dates were published, as a result if anyone has already their flights for the previous week, please contact us with a copy of a valid booking form, and we will deal with it.

Once again England unreservedly apologises for this error, and any distress this may have caused.

EUROPE CUP YOUTH - GIRLS TAKE OVERALL TITLE & BOYS ARE RUNNERS UP

 

England's Medal Winners
 
Boys Singles Bronze (Keelan) & Gold (Leighton)   Girls Pairs Champions & Singles Bronze
 
Overall Girls Champions   Boys Team Bronze

Day three was the final day of the 2019 Europe Cup Youth Championship and they went into the day with a chance of winning the girls and gaining a medal in the boys and that is exactly what happened as the girls retained the title and the boys took a silver medal behind the Netherlands.

The first player in action was Leighton Bennett in the singles semi final and he took his place in the final with a 2-0 sets win over Netherlands Luke van der Kwast. The next player in action was Beau Greaves in the girls semi final, but a 0-3 defeat against Hungarian Tamara Kovacs, who turned out to be the eventual champion, meant the overall title was still in the balance.

Things were still going against England as the boys team let a 4-3 lead slip against the Republic of Ireland and they lost the semi final 9-4, once again losing to the eventual champions. However things improved in the next two games as first Leighton Bennett took the singles title and gold medal with a 3-1 sets win over Jurjen van der Velde, that also sealed the silver medal in the overall table.

The girls pairs was the next game on and a very close match against Scotland's McKinlay & O'Brien and Shannon and Beau eventually hit the winning double to gain a 4-3 win to gain the pairs gold medal and after a nervous wait they were also confirmed as the overall title winners as well.

EUROPE CUP YOUTH

Day two of the Youth Europe Cup saw the girls play their singles event, with all players being in a round robin groups. Beau Greaves won all four of her games to win her group, but unfortunately Shannon Reeves only won one of her games and didn't qualify for the last eight games. Beau won her last eight match 3-1 against Sophie McKinlay (Scotland) to move into Saturday's semi final where she will play Tamara Kovacs (Hungary).

Later on the girls were back in action as they played the semi final of the pairs and we are delighted that they beat the Dutch pairing of Rietbergen & Van der Velde 3-1 to gain a place in Saturday's final against the Scottish pair of McKinlay & O'Brien.

The boys were in action in the tem event and they won their group after beating both Hungary and Turkey 9-3, this got them into the last eight where another 9-3 victory over Wales put them into Saturday's semi final where they will play the Republic of Ireland.

The final match saw Keelan and Brad narrowly lose 2-3 to against Van der Velde/Van der Kwast of the Netherlands and so had to settle for a bronze medal. But on a positive note all six England players are guaranteed to come home with at least one medal each.

The points tables at the end of day two are :

EUROPE CUP YOUTH

Day one of the Youth Europe Cup saw both the girls and boys start their pairs event and it turned out to be a good day for the England pairings, the girls pair of Shannon Reeves and Beau Greaves lost their first game but then won the next three to finish second in the group and gain a place in the quarter finals, where they beat the German pair to gain a place in Friday's semi finals where they will play the Dutch pairing of Rietbergen & Van der Velde.

The boys pairs of Keelan Kay & Brad Phillips and Leighton Bennett & Mitchell McCarthy both won all their group games to win their respective groups that put them in the last sixteen. Leighton & Mitchell won 3-1 against a Scottish pair before losing 1-3 in the quarter finals to a Gibraltar pair. Keelan & Brad won their last sixteen match 3-0 against a German pair and then had a narrow 3-2 win against a Hungarian pair to move into Friday's semi final against Van der Velde/Van der Kwast of the Netherlands.

The boys then moved onto their singles event, where Keelan and Leighton won their groups, Brad finished second and so all three of them qualified for the last thirty two, unfortunately Mitchell missed out as he finished third in his group. Brad lost at this stage, but Keelan and Leighton both won their last thirty two and last sixteen matches to take a place in the quarter finals which were played over best of three sets. Keelan lost 1-2 to Marcel Bus (Netherlands) whilst Leighton beat Connor Hopkins (Wales) 2-0 to gain a place in Saturday's semi finals where he will be joined by three Dutch players.
