THE fi­nal of the world cham­pi­onship

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

darts on BBC One was a great sport­ing spec­ta­cle where Scott Mitchell over­came favourite Martin “Wolfie” Adams in a thrilling match.

What was con­fus­ing was that it was the sec­ond world cham­pi­onship darts fi­nal in a fort­night, with the great Phil “The Power” Tay­lor be­ing de­feated by un­der­dog Gary An­der­son ( above) in the first.

The sport split in the 1990s so there are now two ti­tles, the Bri­tish Darts Or­gan­i­sa­tion (BDO) and the Pro­fes­sional Darts Cor­po­ra­tion (PDC), and the play­ers can’t play in both.

Although it means we get to watch two darts world cham­pi­onships, a bit of me gets frus­trated – I want to see th­ese guys go up against each other.

I want to see Wolfie Adams take on Phil The Power ev­ery year at the world fi­nals.

So come on guys, sort it out – and let’s have one tour­na­ment where all the best play­ers can fight it out in one cham­pi­onship.
