DENBIGH’S own Mark Webster has been taking part in an online Darts tournament aimed at keeping fans of the sport entertained during the coronavirus lockdown.

The 36-year-old former British Darts Organisation (BDO) World Champion signed up for the 'Icons of Darts' live league which started on April 6.

Organised by Webster's management company MODUS, the first week saw Manchester-based David Evans take the honours.

Evans faced a long wait to find out if he was going to win the League for the week with him not playing on the final day due to all players receiving one day off out of the six.

But with Wessel Nijman losing out to Webster in a last leg decider, despite winning the day overall, it meant that by leg difference of only one leg, ‘Stretch’ took the win.

Paul Nicholson was next, who won on the penultimate day, and had a strong showing again on Saturday with 22 points.

Then it was Andy Jenkins on 20 points, having won 10 and lost 10 overall. The bottom two surprisingly comprised of the favourite Raymond van Barneveld who finished on 10 points with five wins but -31 leg difference and finally Webster on eight points.

Week two this week sees Jason Askew, Paul Nicholson, Andy Jenkins, Robert Collins and Arron Monk join in, with an additional competition entitled 'MODUS A Night at the Darts' also introduced.

Talking about the Icons of Darts live leagues, Webster said: "There was a few teething problems to begin with, as you'd expect with setting it all up from home. Overall though, it's been a success.

"I had a pretty poor few games myself if I'm honest but I'm now joining the commentary team for other matches alongside Chris Mason."

The MODUS Icons of Darts Live League champion is set to be crowned in early May. Matches are being streamed on MODUS' website and Dartshop TV and all match data is on DartConnect.
