Former world darts champion Mark Webster will be hoping to relive his 2008 win over Simon Whitlock after the two were paired together in the same group for the Grand Slam of Darts event in Wolverhampton.
Both are sponsored by Leyland Paints, so the match between the Welsh left-hander and the Australian, should prove to be a colourful affair.
Since the pair met in the BDO world final five years ago, Webster hasn’t enjoyed much success against ‘The Wizard’, but he’s hoping to put that right in the fast-paced early format of the group stages of the Grand Slam. (more…)
Webster, the 2008 BDO world champion, has been the star attraction in the Leyland Paints Darts Challenges held at five Selco Builders Warehouses. (more…)
Mark Webster continues to be a major contender for PDC honours, having previously won the BDO World Championship in 2008.
The left-hander, from Denbigh in Wales, broke into the top-level darts scene in style in 2006 by winning the Europe Cup. That year also included a run to the semi-finals of the World Masters. (more…)

And the Denbigh-based left hander is looking forward to the challenge. (more…)

Wales secured their place in the last 16 of the World Cup in Hamburg with an impressive whitewash over Italy on Saturday afternoon.
Mark Webster and Richie Burnett eased past Daniele Petri and Matteo Dal Monte to ensure they would top their group.
And Webster believes that their is much more to come from team Wales.
He said: “Winning is the most important thing and we’ve had two good wins so we’ve got to be happy with that.
“We haven’t really played anywhere near our best though and there is a lot of room for improvement.
“If we can do that and move it up a gear or two then there’s no reason why we can’t go all the way. We are here to win this.”
Burnett got Wales off the mark by pinning double four and he doubled their lead on double ten.
Webster then made it three nil when he hit double eighteen before Burnett found the double four bed to take the Welsh pair within a leg of victory.
And ‘The Prince of Wales’ pegged double ten to seal their place at the top of Group D.
They will face the runners-up from Group C in the last 16 on Saturday evening.
