Cross and Searle begin campaigns with early victories, Woodhouse out of contention after defeat to Larsson
The action in the PDC Home Tour continues on Saturday night with Rob Cross and Ryan Searle claiming early victories, while Luke Woodhouse has crashed out early doors.
Searle has been one of the most in-form players this season winning a PDC ranking title and he has also claimed an early victory defeating Luke Woodhouse in a 6-4 win with a high checkout of 146 as well as an average of 98.8.
Woodhouse from there crashed out of the tournament with a game to spare as Larsson capitalised after the former blew a 5-3 lead and missed a match dart. This allowed the Swede to win in a last leg decider.
The players who win Groups One-Four will go onto Semi-Final One on Wednesday June 3 with the winners from Groups Five-Eight set to play on Thursday June 4 before that aforementioned Championship Group.
All games will be best of 11 legs and each night’s action will commence at 1930 BST, darts commentator Dan Dawson will be on hand to talk through proceedings; which will also include live score graphics on screen.
In addition all live-scores can be followed on DartConnect; with match statistics being available after every match.
