WDF Europe Cup Men Teams 1994

The ninth edition of the WDF Europe Cup was played in the Swedish capital Stockholm from October 13-15. For the first time, the milestone of twenty registered countries was reached in the men’s competition. Russia, Latvia and the Czech Republic are the newcomers. There were 18 countries competing in the ladies, only Belgium and Cyprus did not bring their ladies to Sweden. It is also the first WDF Europe Cup after the split, where many of the top players start their own organisation, which will later become the PDC. The British teams in particular should be affected by this on paper.

The team event in 1994 is not played to a finish as the first events as was usual, but as the last event. Host country Sweden is already surprisingly eliminated in the group stage. Their 8-9 defeat to Belgium is fatal. The Finns also disappoint, but they were in the group of death with the Netherlands, Ireland, Denmark and Germany.

In the quarter finals, top favourite England wins with Steve Beaton, Ronnie Baxter, Martin Adams & Kevin Kenny against the Dutch quartet Bert Vlaardingerbroek, Braulio Roncero, Raymond van Barneveld & Roland Scholten 9-5. The Dutch are quickly behind 0-5 and that deficit proved to big. The other British teams are also doing well. Scotland beats Jann Hoffmann, Troels Rusel, Per Skau & Stig Jorgensen's Denmark 9-4. Wales wins 9-6 against the Norwegians Oyvind Aasland, Arild Folgerø, Thor-Helmer Johansen & Helge Knapskog. Belgium is the fourth and last semi-finalist. It takes a seventeenth and deciding leg, but they beat Louis Doherty, Charlie Gaile, Francis McMahon & Norman Beggs from Northern Ireland. Small anecdote here is that the Belgian players had to pay for their own trip to participate in this WDF Europe Cup.

The fairy tale for the Belgians Stefan Eeckelaert, Marcel De Vuyst, Leo Laurens & Pascal Rabau ends in the semi-finals when they have no chance against England, it ends 9-1. In the other semi-final, things get a lot closer between Richie Burnett, Eric Burden, Sean Palfrey & Martin Phillips on behalf of Wales and the Scottish team with Danny Cunningham, Bob Taylor, Les Wallace & Stephen Parkes. At the end of a geat game it is Wales that goes to the final, they win 9-7.

In the final it will also be 9-7. But this time for the English team of Steve Beaton, Ronnie Baxter, Martin Adams & Kevin Kenny. With that, the English win the team tournament for the third time in a row and the seventh time in total.
