WDF Europe Cup Men Singles 1982

At the third European Cup darts we see next to the men’s tournament also a ladies version. For the first time the ladies get a chance at the International darts level. They have their own separate competition. Twelve countries participated on 15 and 16 October at the Cliffs Pavilion in Westcliff on Sea in England for the third European Cup darts.

In the singles tournament the English players dominated. All four reached the semi-finals. Bristow defeated Jocky Wilson 4-0 in the quarterfinals. If Bristow were to reach the final, he would be joined number one in the World Rankings with John Lowe. In the semi-final Bristow beat Dave Whitcombe 4-3.

Maybe Bristow celebrated his new ranking a bit too much with "John Courage beer" sponsor of the Europe Cup III because he lost the final like the two before, this time 4-0 to Bobby George. His girlfriend Maureen Flowers afterwards said angrily to Bristow: "I suppose that you're content just to get to finals."

Venue: England Cliffs Pavilion, Westcliffe on Sea, Southend From: Friday 15 October 1982 Till: Saturday 16 October 1982
