WDF Europe Cup Men Singles 1986

From 24 to October 25, 1986 the fifth European Cup was held in Turku, Finland. Thirteen countries participated. Switzerland is participating in this tournament for the first time in history. The WDF Europe Cup was sponsored by Scandinavia's oldest brewery Sinetrychoff the makers of "KOFF" beer.

The singles became, as in 1982, all-England semi-finals. Cliff Lazarenko defeats Eric Bristow 4-2 in the semi-finals. Bristow had already had a lot of trouble in the quarterfinals where he stumbled over the finishing line against Welshman Ken Thomas 4-3. In the other semi-final, defending champion John Lowe beats Dave Whitcombe, also 4-2.

In the final John Lowe is again the strongest with 4-2. He beats Cliff Lazarenko and wins his second consecutive and third WDF Europe Cup Singles title in total.
