WDF World Cup Men Pairs 1983

The English dominate WDF World Cup IV, which was held in Edinburgh on 21 and 22 October. At the WDF General meeting, Peter McMenamin of Australia is elected as the new chairman to replace Bill Turner of New Zealand. For the first time there is also a separate WDF World Cup for women.

The ladies play with two per country. In addition to the Overall WDF World Cup, they also compete for medals in the singles and pairs. 21 countries compete in Scotland, including the debutants Norway and Germany. For the ladies, 19 countries participate in their first WDF World Cup

In the pairs it is again John Lowe & Eric Bristow who take the gold medal. In the first rounds it was sometimes quite difficult with victories in a seventh and decisive leg against Frank Palko & Russell Stewart from Australia and Paul Lim & Richard Lee from Singapore, but as the tournament progresses it gets easier.

In the semi-finals they beat Leighton Rees & Alan Evans from Wales with 4-1. In the other semi-final, Jocky Wilson & Danny Cunningham from Scotland beat Australia's Terry O'Dea & David Crack 4-2.

In the final John Lowe & Eric Bristow are too strong for the Scottish duo Jocky Wilson & Danny Cunningham, they win the final 4-2 and crown themselves as WDF World Cup pair champions for the third time.
