Glen Durrant V Jim Williams a classic encounter at the Lakeside Country Club

Glen Durrant joined Scott Waites in the BDO World Professional Darts Championship final after he defeated Jim Williams 6-3 in a classic encounter at the Lakeside Country Club. Waites conquered Michael Unterbuchner earlier in the day and will now go for a third BDO World Championship title.

Middlesbrough based Durrant led for a majority of the contest but would lose the opening leg on throw as Williams steamed out of the blocks. Three legs of the spin including a Shanghai 120 checkout gave the Welshman the early advantage. 

A stunning 110 checkout in the final leg of the second set would level proceedings as Durrant began to gather steam. An excellent third set would allow Durrant get his nose in-front as Williams’ scoring slightly dipped. ‘Duzza’ averaging over 100 for the match at the time would double his cushion with a 3-1 win in the fourth set, but Williams was far from down and out. 

The number three seed would be pushed all the way in set five, but ultimately held his nerve with 105 checkout reducing the deficit. The duo would exchange blows as Durrant held a narrow advantage with the match continuing to go with throw but set eight would prove to be a turning point. 

Six perfect darts for ‘The Quiff’ would put Williams in with a shout, Durrant’s relentless scoring not letting up just yet. A 115 outshot putting daylight between the two as Williams’ chances began to fade. 

The tie would be put to bed in the ninth and final set, as Durrant confirmed his place alongside Waites in Sunday’s final. He swooped on a missed 140 checkout from his opponent as he stepped up to the oche to throw for the match. He would seal the match in stunning fashion, taking out 123 on double nine. Durrant will now contest his third consecutive final as he looks to match Eric Bristow’s long standing BDO World Championship record.
