Jamie Hughes and Darryl Fitton advanced to the World Championship semi-finals after thrilling deciding set victories against Martin Adams and Geert de Vos respectively, as Lisa Ashton stormed into the women’s final in a pulsating session of darts at the Lakeside Country Club on Friday afternoon.

Fourth seed Jamie Hughes came from 2-0 and 3-1 down to edge out three-time world champion Martin Adams in a thrilling nine-set tussle.

Scott Waites will begin the defence of his Lakeside crown against either Craig Caldwell or Dennis Harbour, after the draw for the 2017 BDO World Darts Championship was made at the Lakeside Country Club on Saturday morning.

Waites won his second world title with a comprehensive victory over Jeff Smith twelve months ago, but the sixth seed faces a tough task to defend his crown. The Yorkshireman will either play Kiwi qualifier Craig Caldwell, or last year’s quarter-finalist Dennis Harbour in round one.

World number one Glen Durrant will begin his World Championship campaign against International Open winner Nick Kenny. ‘Duzza’ has enjoyed the best year of his career in 2016, winning nine ranking titles; although he’ll be desperate to add a maiden world title to his collection.

Three-time world champion Martin Adams faces either Ryan Joyce or Sweden’s Dennis Nilsson in round-one, whilst 2015 champion Scott Mitchell plays either Jimmy Hendriks, Roger Janssen or Mark McGrath. Continue reading “2017 BDO World Darts Championship Draw!”
