THROWBACK VIDEO: Beaton dethrones Burnett to claim 1996 BDO World Darts Championship

With the BDO World Darts Championship not taking place this month due to the organisation’s demise, DartsNews looks back at classic moments and matches throughout January from the showpiece event.

Onto 1996 we go and it was Steve Beaton who ended up as champion dethroning defending champion Richie Burnett 6-3 in the final.

Beaton was the number one seed and defeated some brilliant names en route to the title including Co Stompé, John Part, Martin Adams and Andy Fordham before defeating 'The Prince of the Wales'.
