9:30am Monday 12th August 2013 in Sport
DARTS ace James Hurrell has further strengthened his reputation in the sport by winning a major British Darts Organisation (BDO) tournament.
Hurrell, from Moreton-in- Marsh, teamed up with Mark Blandford to win the Gold Cup doubles at the Lakeside in Frimley Green, Surrey.
The pair won five matches to reach the final where they defeated their Warwickshire opponents 4-2.
In the singles, Hurrell was beaten in the last 16.
Hurrell and Blandford, from the Forest of Dean, also reached the England Pairs Open final, losing to Dutch internationals Wesley Harms and Jeffrey de Graaf.
Hurrell said: “It’s a great achievement. I am still looking for sponsorship to help achieve my goal of playing for England and making the BDO World Championships.”
His success follows on from winning the 38th men’s British Pentathlon trophy.
