There's another JDC event during this, the final of the Super 16, which will be Keane Barry's final JDC event before he graduates. He's up against Luke Littler, who at 12 years old, makes Leighton Bennett seem like a veteran lol

The Milton Keynes milkmen must have put some shift in. Heading for a sell out.

Oatley now presenting the footys Sunday supplement on sky, so highly likely she will no longer do the darts for ITV I would imagine.

Not sure, she gets everywhere! Can't stand her, she's a bit of a try-hard. Hopefully you're right.

Wouldn’t have thought she could do the supplement and the final day of the darts

One of my least favourite tournaments of the year. I don't know if a format change would help, certainly the current format doesn't really distinguish it from other competitions. I'm expecting Van Gerwen to respond to losing the worlds. Aspinall v Wade is the only first round game I can be arsed with really. First few Pro Tours will probably be more interesting than this.

I agree. Mix it up a bit and make it set play

If she can get from one to the other time wise I wouldn't be surprised cos she seems to pop up all over the place, She's quite tied with ITV too so not sure she would compromise her situation there?

Yes but final day usually starts at around 1pm in the afternoon. Would be a nightmare for her to do it especially the World Series finals as they are in europe

Hopefully, she does seem to have been drifting to covering more football. No doubt the gig will go the best best woman :roll: for the job if she is done.
