No Gibraltar player in second round of Gibraltar Darts Trophy

Gibraltar will not be represented at the second round of the Gibraltar Darts Trophy after all four Gibraltar host nations qualifiers fell in the first round on Friday.
Dyson Parody was to come the closest having been 5-1 down to lift his game and take it to 5-4 before his opponent Kenny Neyens closed winning the tenth leg and providing a jubilant jump in celebration.
With Justin Broton crashing out 6-1 against Adam Smith-Neale and Craig Galliano receiving a 6-0 whitewash all hopes had laid on Justin Hewitt late into the evening’s play against Callan Rydz.
The latter was to book his place to play Peter Wright as he recorded a ton-plus average and finished six doubles from eight attempts, defeating Hewitt 6-1.

Play resumes today with the second round where those who have now qualified are guaranteed prizeshare winnings.
Rob Cross’ 6-4 victory against Patrick Kovacs set up a battle of former World Champions with Michael van Gerwen.
Recent World Cup of Darts winner John Henderson crashed out as he saw Croatia's Boris Krcmar average almost 98 in his 6-2 win securing a round two tie with UK Open champion James Wade.
Germany's Florian Hempel will play against Gerwyn Price after producing an 11-darter to win the deciding leg of his tie with Stephen Bunting.
The Gibraltar Darts Trophy continues this afternoon at the Europa Sports Complex with play resuming at 1pm.
