Good turnout of players lined up for the Scottish open over the weekend, organisation was interesting to say the least with transportation causing some players to miss matches and fire alarms going off added to the atmosphere.
Results were slow coming through on SDA website so nail biting stuff for us interested fans, then we got the news Wes made last 32 and again waited and put on the live stream via Justin TV god bless them and spent a couple of hours watch the builders assemble the stage.
The chat room was buzzing a number of Wes fans trying to get information as the afternoon went on and begging the broadcaster to go find the results, he did and we heard the good news that Wes was in the semi-final line up to be played on stage, comments in the chat room told us Wes played some good darts to get there.
Wes played Gary Robson a local favourite and played well to overcome Gary 4.0 and make his way to the final to meet Jim Williams of Wales a tough young player.
The final was well played by both players with Williams taking first 2 legs, Wes then levelling as he so often does after settling in to 2.2. Williams again took the lead until Wes in a very cool, controlled manner levelled to 4.4 to make a last leg shootout.
Williams won the middle to have the darts in the last leg, putting pressure on Wes with some good opening Darts, Wes stayed with him keeping that expected “cool hand” style going to take the double to win after misses by Williams for the match.
Wes as always thanks all for his messages of support during and after the matches he played.
