McFall reaches last four at NI Open


The Ballymena, Harryville and District Darts League had a free night on Friday due to the Northern Ireland Open competition held in Bellini’s, Newry.

There was a strong attendance from Ballymena at the prestigious event, with everyone representing the League well.

However the standout performer has to be David McFall.

Fresh from his success in the League pairs the previous week, David threw some fantastic darts to reach the semi–final.

The quarter finals onwards were shown live on Eurosport on Sunday evening; and in an all-Northern Irish match David battled from 2-0 down to triumph 4-3 over Barry Copeland.

This resulted in a semi-final matchup with the current Welsh captain and reigning World Masters Champion; the BDO world number 4, Martin Phillips.

Unfortunately, David was unable to really get going in this match until late in the game, losing 5-1.

A huge well done David from everyone in the league
