Michael Burgoine continues to be a force in the Amateur Darts Circuit, as he tops the East of England region in the Vault 6.0 with 246 points. 

The Englishman has claimed 4 Round Robin successes since the introduction of the 7-week qualifying phase, winning on Sunday at the Kempston Con Club in his most recent Round Robin success. 

The Burger Boy included a first 9 dart average of 106.11 in a 3-0 Semi Final victory over Rob Woods, before claiming the tournament against Russel Albon in a last leg decider in Kempston. 

Burgoine leads the East of England region by 26 points ahead of Darren Youngs in 2nd, with this the penultimate week before the 32 highest ranked players in each region return for Finals Day. 

Michael has always been a threat in the Vault format as he continues in his attempts to qualify for the MODUS Super Series, with his form in previous Vault’s suggesting that his chance will eventually come through the ADC. 

Former PDC Tour Card holders Stuart Kellet and Wes Newton are the top 2 players in the Northwest region, with KO already benefitting fully from the opportunities in the Vault Round Robin structure as he awaits his chance at the Live Lounge. 


Stuart leads by 16 points ahead of The Warrior in the overall rankings, winning 5 competitions so far all at the Castle Sports and Social Club in Horwich. 

William McKendry has a 56-point lead at the top of the Northern Ireland region ahead of WDF Number 11 Seed Barry Copeland in 2nd, winning 5 competitions so far. 

Hedgie’s most recent win came at the New Coach Bar in Ballymena, beating Justin Cushenan 3-2 in the Final. William also threw a first nine dart average of 100.67 in his 3-0 Semi Final victory over Adam Black last Wednesday. 

Davie Kirwan and Scott Winder who have both appeared at the MODUS Super Series before, are looking comfortable in Scotland with regards a place at Finals Day, with Davie leading the region with 276 points ahead of Scott in 2nd by 35 points. 

The Claymore has picked up a whopping 7 Round Robin titles in a fantastic campaign, claiming one of his tournament successes after averaging 90.65 in beating Brandon Clark 3-1 in the Final at the Airdre Working Men’s Club. 

Kirwan appeared at the Lakeside World Championships as well as the Red Dragon Champion of Champions last year, whilst claiming a silver medal with Scotland at the 2023 WDF World Cup in Denmark in the pairs event, with partner Danny Trueman. 

The Scotsman has continued in the same reign of form in 2024 and looks all but set to return for Finals Day, and an opportunity at trying to secure a place at the MODUS Super Series once again. 

Elsewhere, Dan Nicholls leads by 76 points at the top of the Midlands region whilst Geoff Heath remains the player to catch at the top of the Southeast and London rankings, with 2 weeks now left to play in the 7-week league phase section of the Vault 6.0. 

More ADC Events

Away from the Vault and Marty Moreland claimed £700 and 128 points for his ADC Ranking at the Ballymore Inn, winning the Area 9 Classic In Memory Of Sam Mein. 

The Northern Irishman hit 2 180s in a 7-3 victory over former WDF World Champion Neil Duff, including a 116 checkout to break throw with a 15 darter. 

The event included 90 competing players with Moreland starting his campaign in the First Round, as many others started at the Last 64 stage. 

Sam Hamilton and Daniel Astbury won the Red Dragon Doubles Cup Midlands Qualifier at the Cue and Brew Sports Bar in Kidderminster. The pair defeated Kieron Bridgwater and Gavin Smith 4-2 in the Final, hitting an 85 checkout to break throw for the 6th and final leg. 

Connor Jeffreys and Jonathan Kavanagh also added 32 points to their ADC Rankings with wins at competitions in Morecambe and Chorlton on Saturday. 

Jeffreys finished second in his group stage of The York in Morecambe March GSoD, with his only defeat coming against Robin Towler who averaged 87.13 in a 4-0 win. 

The pair met once more in the Final, with Connor this time claiming a 4-2 victory including breaks of throw in legs 4 and 6.

Jonathan prevailed in the Riley’s Chorlton March GSoD, beating Josh Howarth in a last leg decider in the Final (4-3). Kavanagh included 2 averages of 92.02 in whitewash wins over Alan Wands and Joseph Heywood in the group stage, before hitting a first 9 score of 100.29 in his 4-3 Semi Final win over ADC Number 6 Simon Preston. 

The Wigan born player enjoyed a fantastic afternoon in Chorlton, winning all 8 of his matches on Saturday in a perfect campaign.
