Lloyd hopes to make progress in Dutch Darts Masters
Colchester darts ace Colin Lloyd will be looking to make progress when he takes part in the opening round of the Dutch Darts Masters, which starts at the NH Hotel Koningshof tomorrow.
The £100,000 tournament is the year’s eighth and final European Tour event, featuring 64 players competing across three days. Lloyd will take on a Dutch qualifier in the first round, which will see play split across two sessions on two boards.
Meanwhile, Lloyd’s run in the John McEvoy Gold Dart Classic Trophy was ended by Kevin Painter.
He lost 6-3 to Billericay-born Painter to bow out of the PDC ProTour event at the third-round stage, in Killarney, Ireland.
Lloyd, nicknamed Jaws, had progressed after beating Jimmy Murray 6-2 in the second round and Kieran Lennon.
A day earlier, Lloyd bowed out of the Gleneagle Hotel Players Championship at the second-round stage.
The former world number one lost 6-3 to Michael Barnard, having beaten Richie Howson 6-2 in the first round of the competition.
Meanwhile, Lloyd was eliminated from Group Six of the Championship League Darts, after winning two of his seven league matches.
Lloyd’s wins came against Mervyn King (6-5) and Gary Anderson (6-4).
But the 40-year-old lost to Paul Nicholson (6-3), Peter Wright (6-2), Jamie Caven (6-3), Kim Huybrechts (6-3) and Ian White (6-2), at Crondon Park GC.
