Lorraine Winstanley received the news that two women are guaranteed to compete in the 2019 PDC World Darts Championship with a lot of enthusiasm. But while the thought of Alexandra Palace participation is enchanting, she still has major reservations.

No no no, they are all flocking back to the BDO with no intention of going back to the PDC coz the BDO is the future of darts

Wes is a fine player - The BDO have picked up some good talent this year - Hamilton and Newton - If they can rebuild on the bdo tour - then they could do very well at Lakeside -

Forget if you like Newton or not. But the fact is I saw him hit a 9 darter at Blackpool. The next night (or the other way round) I saw mvg hit one (got pictures of me and Mrs devo celebrating the mvg one from an highlights package on sky!).

What a 'fall' he has had. Has it always been like this (folks dropping do far down in a relatively short period - premier league to this event) or is it more cut throat these days?

Andy Hamilton is making his BDO England Open debut on Saturday. The former PDC World Championship finalist revealed at the end of 2017 that he was switching to the BDO after losing his Tour Card.

Hamilton will face Freddie Box in the first round of the BDO England Open. If ‘The Hammer’ wins his first game, then BDO number one Mark McGeeney awaits in the second round. The 51-year-old speaks about his expectations for this event in an interview with Dartsnews.com.

Jan Dekker is one of the few players in the world’s top 64 who has a second job in addition to his darts career. On weekdays, Dekker plies his trade as a specialist in corporate finance at his business, Noordfin.

Dartsnews.com went to talk business with Dekker. There was also time to discuss some darts, including his debut at Lakeside, changes within the PDC and his future plans.

John Norman Jnr’s at it again.
The boisterous Canadian has developed a reputation for some over-exuberant behaviour on the oche. Norman Jnr rose to prominence at the 2017 World Cup of Darts, where his antics embarrassed John Part and annoyed Rowby-John Rodriguez.

Once again there was a surprising name in the final of a Euro Tour tournament. William O’Connor reached the final of the European Darts Matchplay in Hamburg earlier this month.

DartsNews.com recently had the opportunity to interview “The Lancashire Rose” Lisa Ashton after her England Open triumph.

As well as asking about Ashton recent title win, the topics included the Challenge Tour, BDO World Trophy and the PDC World Championship as well as the Grand Slam.

Q. Thanks for answering some questions for me Lisa, firstly could you tell me how you got into playing darts?

A. My brothers needed someone to practice with so they asked me, well until I started winning then they stopped asking so much.

Q. Recently you defeated Aileen de Graaf in the final of the England Open 5-3 coming through ton plus checkouts including a 135 on the bull from Aileen, how did it feel to claim that title after a close game with De Graaf and what were your overall thoughts on the whole England Darts weekend?

A. Aileen is a fantastic player, total respect, however I just concentrate on my game and hope it’s good enough on the day. It was an amazing feeling to win the English open because it was one I hadn’t won before.

Q. Recently there was also the World Trophy in which you reached the Quarter-Final in losing to Anastasia Dobromyslova, what do you make of your form at the moment and were you gutted that you couldn’t add a third title this time around?

A. Anastasia is playing great at the moment very consistent, my form isnt bad but not as consistent as Anastasia and Fallon have been at the moment. “That’s the game of darts”.

Q. Of course you are a four time BDO Lakeside World Champion recently it was announced that a new PDC World Championship Ladies Qualifier would be introduced, what are your thoughts on that and is there potential for you to play in it?

A. I would love to play in something like that, however to avoid myself from being disappointed if it doesn’t happen I try not to think to much about such matters until they are in black and white.

Q. Speaking of the PDC you have previously played on the Challenge Tour, what did you make of that experience and if the new rules concerning Q-School hadn’t come in would you have played this year as well?

A. I like the opportunity of improving my game and that gave me the chance to play against some top quality players so what’s not to love. I wish I could do more.

Q. Also do you think that the PDC/BDO should look at potentially adding ladies such as yourself who are current major champions into the Grand Slam of Darts?

A. I would love to play in the grand slam, I also think a lot of fans would like to see some ladies play in it. Maybe they could have a ladies grand slam wouldn’t that be great.

Q. Finally what do you make of the growth and strength & depth in women’s darts at the moment?

A. It’s very tough out there with so many great players, not easy to win a major but if you do it’s the best feeling ever because you know you have had to beat some phenomenal ladies to do it.

Andy Hamilton took to social media to speak about his weekend where he competed at the BDO Wolverhampton Classic and Open which were won by Scott Baker and Dave Parletti respectively.

“Ok weekend overall,” Hamilton wrote on his social media. “I got the last sixteen on Saturday, I was happy with that. I was not satisfied with a semi-final spot on Sunday. “

In addition he said the following: “But it’s all good progress. These are 24 points for the ranking, so I might just be outside the top-32. Thank you everyone for the support.”

After two good results at the BDO Wolverhampton Classic and Wolverhampton Open, ‘The Hammer’ is ranked 35th in the BDO ranking. The top 27 receives an invitation to participate in Lakeside 2019
