WDF Europe Cup Men Teams 1984

On 26 and 27 October, the Dutch Darts Association together with the WDF organized the Europe Cup IV for men and women in the sports center Ockenburg in The Hague. For the first time in history a darts event of this stature was organized in the Netherlands. All the top players from twelve European countries were present. But it was the English men who would claim all the top prizes.

In the team event the Netherlands (Rick Daniels, Peter Kessels, Ellis Elsevijf, Graeme Stoddart) reached the semi-finals by defeating Germany 9-5 in the quarterfinals. It was not an easy victory as the score line may suggest, they fell behind 4-0 before Peter Kessels won their first leg with a 15- darter.

The Netherlands lost in the semi-finals to the Northern Ireland team (Fred McMullan, Ray Farrell, Steve Brennan and David Keery) 9-3. The other semi-final between England (John Lowe, Eric Bristow, Dave Whitcombe and Cliff Lazarenko) and Scotland (Jocky Wilson, Peter Masson, Danny Cunningham and Harry Patterson) proved to be a real thriller. Initially the English pros seemed to have no problem with the Scots as they stormed into an 8-3 lead. But then the Scots woke up and they won five legs in a row. It was John Lowe who defeated Peter Masson in the deciding leg and secured England's victory with 9-8. This semi-final was perhaps the highlight of the tournament for all the legs were finished within 20 darts.

The final had an equally sensational score line. England took a 5-0 lead but was again surprised. Led by two strong legs from David Keery and Steve Brennan in 13 darts Northern Ireland won fine legs in a row. Yet it was the English team, which eventually won the game 9-7. Although not always with ease, in the end England managed to win the team event yet again.
