WDF Europe Cup Men Pairs 2006

Ennis in Ireland is the beautiful setting for the fifteenth edition of the WDF Europe Cup darts. Played at the Lynch West County Hotel from September 21-23. It is the second time that Ireland organizes the WDF Europe Cup. Bundoran was host in 1996. Nineteen countries send their best men and women to Ireland to compete. It would be a historic edition for the men because the English quartet falls of the podium in the overall standings for the first time in history. Turkey joined the WDF Europe Cup family for the first time in 2006.

Only Finland has two pairs left in the quarterfinals in 2006. Marco Kantele & Jarkko Komula also advance to the semi-finals. They beat the Swedish duo Goran Klemme & Johan Engstrom 4-0. All other quarterfinals ended in 4-3. Vincent van der Voort & Jelle Klaasen beat Oyvind Aasland & Robert Wagner from Norway. Northern Ireland's John Elder & Paul Watton beat Finns Ulf Ceder & Vesa Nuutinen. The final semi-finalists are from Scotland, Paul Hanvidge & Paul McGimpsey beat Martin Phillips and Wayne Warren from Wales.

The semi-finals are a lot less exciting; the Finns easily win 4-1 against the Dutch duo and the Scots also only lose one leg against the Northern Irish. The final is not one for the histriy books. Paul Hanvidge & Paul McGimpsey win 4-0 against Finland’s Marco Kantele & Jarkko Komula in a one-sided match.

It is the second time that Scotland wins gold in the pairs tournament after Jamie Harvey and Ronnie Sharp in 1992. Also then, a Finnish pairs was beaten in the final. Finland already takes silver for the third time this year, it still waits for the first gold.
