Dimitri and Dobey dazzle in Glasgow!

Unicorn youngsters Dimitri van den Bergh and Chris Dobey stole the show on the opening night of the 2017 Ladbrokes World Series Finals. 

The Belgian was at his brilliant best to send Michael Smith packing in the all Unicorn clash on Friday at the Braehead Arena.

The 6-1 scoreline tells its own story!

And Chris Dobey produced his best performance of the year to stun Mensur Suljovic and he will now play his mentor Gary Anderson in the last 16!

He was 0-3 down against the World No.7 but then found an extra gear. He has endured an awful year on the tour but this is a massive result and will hopefully be a platform for the next few months.

Dobey hit four 180s in four legs to see him hit the front and after Suljovic missed some key doubles, the Unicorn youngster cashed in and 'tops' took him through to his dream clash with Anderson. 

Van den Bergh hit three 174s (two in one leg!) and two 180s as he averaged 100 to set up a clash with Raymond van Barneveld on Saturday.

He raced into a 3-0 with those two 164s coming in the third leg. A 14 darter put Smith on the board but he couldn't get close to Van den Bergh. 

Dimitri reeled off three more legs to complete his comprehensive win.
