OXFORDSHIRE’S season is over after the British Darts Organisation terminated its 2019/20 competitions.

They had two Division 1 fixtures left in the British

Inter-County Championships and were due to visit Hertfordshire this week.

Des Jacklin has also resigned as BDO chairman and with no meetings scheduled due to coronavirus restrictions, the competition faces an uncertain future.

Oxfordshire have put their presentation night and AGM on hold until further notice.

When normality resumes the county will be looking for a new general secretary and A team manager after Graham Manning stepped down.

The Oxon stalwart said: “I have been involved with the county for 22 years and attended 199 consecutive games, of which I have played in 111.

“During that period Oxfordshire became the first team to be promoted in consecutive seasons from Division 4 up to the Premier Division, the only team in BDO history to achieve such a feat.

“It is now time to hand over to someone else.

“Oxfordshire, who punch well above their weight for such a small county, but there are some fantastic players who give their all and I wish them all the best for the future.”

  • THE closure of pubs and clubs has led to the Cowley Workers ODDA league to be put on hold until the end of April.

It is hoped the outstanding league games and competitions will be completed once coronavirus restrictions are lifted.

Entries for the Summer League can be sent in.

The intention is for the competition to run with a reduced number of games.

If the Summer League cannot be played, all fees will be returned.

A statement from the league said: “Please be patient and safe. Your health must be a priority.”
