WDF World Cup Men Singles 2013

In 1989 Canada already hosted the WDF World Cup, when it was played in Toronto, in 2013 Saint Johns on the Eastern tip of the country was chosen as host city. Because some of the European and Asian teams were missing, the figures are a bit lagging behind on previous years. It will also be the last WDF World Cup for Norwegian Roy Price in his capacity as chairman of the WDF.

There were 27 men's teams, 25 women's teams and 11 youth teams present at this nineteenth WDF World Cup. All major countries on paper were there to compete in the Sports NL Center from 1 to 5 October. Among them, the men of Jersey for the first time.

Both winners of the pairs tournament; Stephen Bunting and Tony O'Shea also reach the semi-finals of the singles in 2013. Tony O'Shea, who already took the title in 2009, is no match in the semi-final for Wesley Harms from the Netherlands, the results is a 6-2 victory for Sparky. Bunting does win his semi-final against Welsh veteran Wayne Warren, who has to settle for bronze for the second time in a row.

The final is a good and close battle that is ultimately settled in an all-deciding thirteenth leg in favour of Wesley Harms. He becomes the fourth Dutchman to win this title after Roland Scholten, Raymond van Barneveld and Dick van Dijk. Bunting is the first Englishman to lose a WDF World Cup singles final to a non-British player.
