Lakeside World Darts Championships 2018

Lakeside World Darts Championships 2018


Mark, the BDO and WDF No.1 made it to the 2018 Lakeside World Darts Final in January where he faced defending champion and friend Glen Durrant.

Glen hadn’t competed in all of the ranking tournaments during 2017. He spent a lot of his time on tour and in exhibition matches. However, Glen was on form and despite Mark having darts at a double to win the World Championships, it was not to be. Glen claimed his consecutive Lakeside World title 7-6. Obviously, Mark was gutted not to win but he will be back next year and will be determined to put things right!
