Mark McGeeney reflected on his 2018 Lakeside campaign, which ran all the way to the final, in a post-match interview.

BDO world number one McGeeney lost in the final, missing two match darts in a stunning 7-6 defeat to Glen Durrant. But the Stockport star was satisfied with his overall performance.

“Get past the second round, that was my aim,” admitted the 2018 runner-up.

“I haven’t played my best darts all week, rode my luck in places, but I’m quite pleased with my performance.”

McGeeney picked up a cheque for £35,000 for reaching the final. But he noted that a change of setup was in order going forwards.

“I’ll be back on the practice boards with a new set of darts,” McGeeney said. “The setup I had today wasn’t right for me. It hasn’t been right for a while now, so I’m looking to change it.”

Here is the full interview with the Lakeside finalist.
