Latest Team Unicorn News Update
Unicorn trio Ted Evetts, Chris Dobey and Kyle Anderson all enjoyed double success at the latest qualifying for the 2019 Euro Tour.
Evetts hit another 9 darter on his way to reaching ET3 and ET4 in Munich and Saarbrucken next month, while Dobey and Anderson also made it through to both the German Darts Grand Prix and German Darts Open.
Other Unicorn success saw Keegan Brown and Kim Huybrechts qualify for Munich, while Dimitri van den Bergh and Jeffrey de Zwaan made it to ET4.
Mark McGeeney is certainly finding his feet in the PDC! The former BDO No.1 enjoyed his best run on the Pro Tour in Wigan at the weekend as he reached the semi-finals of Players Championshp 7. He lost to eventual winner Dave Chisnall, but McGeeney proving yet again he means business.
Keegan Brown just missed out on the final at PC8. The man from the Isle of Wight was in excellent form as he got through to the semi-finals, only to lose a last leg decider to Raymond van Barneveld. The tournament was won by Adrian Lewis.
At PC8, Ian White reached the quarter-finals and there was a deserved run to the last 16 for Unicorn youngster Harry Ward.
Gary Anderson made his long awaited return to Pro Tour action, but the Unicorn star was clearly rusty after his recent back problems. He managed to win a couple of games, but it is all about getting 100 per cent and there’s no doubt the results will come for the Scot.
Meanwhile the 2019 Premier League is hotting up. Unicorn ace Michael Smith beat ‘Contender’ Nathan Aspinall in Nottingham to continue his climb up the table. James Wade suffered defeat at the hands of Mensur Suljovic but is still well placed to make an impression.
