The action continues at the BDO World Trophy with multiple shocks occurring to begin the day in Blackburn.

The main one came with Mark McGrath smashing Martijn Kleermaker.

Kleermaker was seen as one of the favourites for the title but McGrath took out 108 on the bull to ease past him.

This included a 96 average from the New Zealand ace who now enters dark horse territory.

Casey Gallagher smashed Trina Gulliver as the Golden Girl’s woes continued. Gulliver averaged less than 55 and will now fall out of the world’s top 10 as a result.

Anastasia Dobromyslova was brilliant in easing past Sharon Prins. It was an 85.9 average as she avenged her poor form as of late against her.

Finally Roger Janssen edged past Mario Vandenbogaerde as his brilliant form continues. A 5-3 win and a 95 average was enough to see off the in-form player.
