Daryl Gurney, along with his long time World Cup partner Brendan Dolan, will once again represent Northern Ireland at the upcoming 2023 World Cup of Darts in Frankfurt, with the pair drawn into Group D of the tournament along with debutants France as well as Ukraine.

“Brendan’s one of the nicest people you can meet and as a pairs partner he’s a great influence.

If it was individuals, I think we would win hands down, but we only play pairs once a year, so to us it’s a bit strange.

If Brendan does his job and I do mine, we should be OK, but as I say we only play once a year so you still don’t know sometimes how it will go.”

Gurney in his 10-year spell in the Professional Darts Corporation won the 2017 World Grand Prix after beating fellow Winmau player Simon Whitlock in the Final.

The Northern Irishman also clinched the 2018 Players Championship Finals in Minehead, beating the then Number 1 Michael van Gerwen in the Final ahead of the World’s.

The Derry born player is still hungry for more success, with everyone knowing the capabilities that he has in his game. The Northern Irishman impressed at the 2017 World Matchplay after reaching the Semi Finals, including an 11-9 victory over Gary Anderson.

Daryl produced a 103.26 average whilst the back-to-back World Champion scored 105.17, in a top quality match at the Winter Gardens.

“It’s all coming back, since I started playing darts when I was 12, I’ve never stopped practising. I stopped for 3 or 4 months during COVID, and it’s been a real struggle to get back to where I was.

I feel now that I’m coming back and hopefully, I can get back up the rankings. I would love to be a seed on the Euro Tour and then take it from there.”

Daryl Gurney along with World Cup partner Brendan Dolan will kick start their World Cup campaign on Thursday in Frankfurt, as the pair kick start against France who will be represented by WDF World Finalist Thibault Tricole and Tour Card holder Jacques Labre.
