DARTS: Oxon boosted by trio's comeback
9:00am Tuesday 5th February 2013 in Sport
OXFORDSHIRE’S men’s A have been strengthened by the return of three key players for the trip to Yorkshire this weekend.
Jon Jukes, Stuart Dutton and Stuart White were named as reserves for the British Inter-County Championships match with Surrey last month.
The trio were in action at the PDC’s Qualifying School, but they failed to secure a card for the 2013 season.
Fortunately, the absence did not have an impact on Oxfordshire, as the fixture was postponed due to snow.
Their recall is welcome, as the county, sixth in the Premier Division, take on the leaders.
There are also changes in the ladies’ teams, with Kim Ledbury named in the A string and Cali Birch back for the B team.
Yorkshire’s side could include Scott Waites, who won the BDO World Championship last month.
The games will be played at Glasshoughton Working Men’s Club, Castleford.
Play will start at 11am on Saturday and Sunday.
