Bears stars in England Victory.

Warwickshire Stars Kevin Dowling and Nigel Heydon were part of the victorious England Team that won the 40th British International Darts Championships held in Glenrothes Fife Scotland. Both games were very tense affairs with Wales drawing their match versus Scotland which left the weekend poised. England were finding things a little tough going 5-2 down at one point, but a last five having a resurgence winning four of them to gain a vital draw. Both bears players lost out, Kevin lost out John Williams Jones 4-3 with a 28+ average and Nigel hit a 26+ but missed doubles saw him lose out 4-2 to David Rogers. With the draw England found themselves at a -3 legs disadvantage going into their match with Scotland which meant a draw with a good + legs or a win which would allay that ruling. Kevin was on at five facing Alex Jeffreys and lost out again with a frustrating game in which doubles were missed aplenty. Nigel howevver put Engand in control with a performance that we have become expected to see hitting Scott Campbell 4-0 with a 29.91 ave, that left England 6-4 in front needing one more for the win which came in the final game of the day to complete the Championship. England Ladies had little trouble in winning their Championships with a fine 6-0 win over Wales and a 5-1 victory over Scotland. Former Bears star Trina Gulliver was star of the Ladies with two wins one being a high 28+. England Youth Boys also took top spot with an incredible performance from one of the Youth prospects Leighton Bennett hitting an amazing 35.79 ave. England Youth Girls lost out on Legs countback despite winning both games on the weekend.
