Kleermaker looks tailor made for PDC hopefully he gives q school a go next year really simple throw.
He will stay in the BDO for the next two years. He said that in an interview with the dutch site Dartfreakz.

Mistake on his part IMO. Could earn alot on the ET with the promise he is showing.

Jimbo takes out Bennett in a decent match.

Good game so far Ashton v Greaves.
Magnificent performance to win both Ladies events.
Warning: this post will be about darts.

The extra 73 points will move Greaves up to 111 points, which could put he at up to 23 on this year's rankings, and 176 points on the 12-month rankings, which could put her up to 25th.
If should continues with good form in the various English events she could attend, she could get herself into the top 16.

Greaves is 15. One more year and she can try the PDC.

Yes you and the rest of the trolls seem very interested in that. Perhaps jealousy.

In the Welsh Classic she beat Clements (19), Hedman (5), Winstanley (3) and Dobromyslova (6). She dropped 3 legs (4-1 SF, 5-2 F)
In the Welsh Open she beat Gallagher (10), Turner (7), Winstanley (3), Hedman (5) and Ashton (1). She dropped a leg to Roberts on her board, and then won 4-0, 4-0, 4-1, 4-2 and 5-3.
Didn't have a game go to the last leg all weekend.

BDO rolling Rankings at 13/5/2019 now have her in 25th at 180 points, 52 points behind Hammond in 14th.
If she can get her ranking up to 14th by the end of the year, she can make the ladies World Championships. But as a junior she can't enter the qualifiers.

Lots of time to improve to surpass peak Gulliver as the best ladies player ever.

What sort on an idiotic system is that where you can’t enter the qualifier but can qualify via the table.

I think that the idea in principle is that if they can't make it directly, they should stick to the juniors. It could leave Greaves in a position where she could end up trying to qualify for the World Youth, playing against the boys, many of whom are better than some of the women who make it to the Ladies championship.

For some reason it doesn't sit right with me re kids qualifying for lakeside (boys or girls)..

good publicity or short term novelty publicity?

3 or 4 kids qualifying in a couple of years,: would that look good for the bdo? I don't think so.

The hype from bdo quarters speaks of desperation to me.

Unless juniors are really exceptional, they're unlikely to be able to tour and accumulate enough points to qualify directly. So, I don't think you'll see that many.

The top men are in the PDC, and the women's game is much weaker than the men's game (though it is getting deeper) so it's not surprising that a top junior would be competitive. Sticking to 18 years old is just likely to have the most talented players switch to the PDC before they've played in the top BDO tournaments.

It would be a great thing to see players of all ages at Lakeside. We could have Leighton Bennett at 14 & Martin Adams at 63

Why shouldn't the BDO hype up their youth talent? The BDO is darts for all, after all. Having participants of all ages at Lakeside would be a great way for the BDO to live up to that slogan.

The pdc are streets ahead of the bdo in most areas.

Why have they got age restrictions if the idea to lift them is so good?

Just a thought: maybe the sponsors (betting firms) wouldn't want 'their' champ bring a 14yr old kid?

You cant really moan that they let any female to qualify Devo ffs, although it is a nonsense they will let a kid happily qualify through the table but not the one-off qualifier.
