EOIN ON A HIGH AFTER ISLE OF MAN DARTS EVENT

NEWCASTLE darts player Eoin White says he feels like he “overachieved” in reaching the semi-final of the Isle of Man U-18 Championships but is determined to reach the final of the same competition next year.

NEWCASTLE darts player Eoin White says he feels like he “overachieved” in reaching the semi-final of the Isle of Man U-18 Championships but is determined to reach the final of the same competition next year.

Eoin played three group stage matches in the WDF (World Darts Federation) event, winning 3-0, 3-1 and 3-1 before beating his quarter final opponent, again 3-1.

The Mayobridge Social Club player was then beaten in the semi-final by Jersey native Lewis Hall, who was the competition’s third seed and went on to win the U-18 tournament, which took place from Thursday 7 to Sunday 10 March.

“It was a good experience. It was a good level of darts and it was my first international tournament so I was aiming to just win one game, but I feel like I overachieved so I’m happy.”
