All quiet on the Jojo front?

Or is it?

I have been quite busy locally with the end of our ladies Wednesday night league, attending an 8 week panel darts comp and the annual Morecambe Premier League. This year passing over my 4th year defence of the ladies title to play with the Men.

The experience I have been gaining from playing week in & week out against some top local lads is paying off not only in my scoring but finishing too!

I want to say a MAHOOSIVE thanks and lots of love to my Kev. He is so supportive about my love for darts and supports me all he can getting & going to all the comps. Even when it means we spend most weekends apart. He never says No when I ask him to come practice with me. He does sometimes moan when he loses and has to make the "Brew of Defeat" ha

I know playing at home is not quite the same as "Game on" but playing the Men is so helping with every aspect of my game. Last 2 hour session playing with Kev resulted in me playing the leg of my life so far. Needless to say I was quite nervous stepping up to go for the 141 for the magical 9 darter. 11 aint to shaby though.

I'm mixing it well in the mens group, in the top half of the group where the top 9 qualify. The games I have lost have almost all been so close losing 5.3, which against some of the lads in this group is a great achievement. It's all experience.

I have struggled getting to some of the BDO & England ranking comps lately, this is due to transportation (this is where I really had wish I'd learned to drive) finances and family.

Even though I have missed a few crucial comps I am still as determined if not more so!. This season has been my taster to see how it all works. I have learned how to select which comps I should be attending & which I shouldn't.

Whilst I'd love to attend them all you have to also think of the most financially viable ones, especially when you are self funding.. I understand more about the categories and boxes to tick also what it means to "defend points" . Next season is when I am going for it full throttle. I am going to get into top 20 BDO ladies.

I have had help and guidance from lots of people so far incuding Michael & Heather Connerton, Paul James, Paula & Des Jacklin, Lisa Ashton, Deta Hedman to name a few. I have also had help financially from my friends & sponsors for believing in me to follow my dream. To all these people I am eternally grateful and I promise to always give it my all and never give up.

Next one for me is Belgium Open in the beginning of August. Looking forward to it. #itsbeenawhile

Good things to come....

The excitement is brewing for all the darts starting back up. Unfortunately our Wednesday night ladies league will not be starting up this season due to the impact Covid & Lockdowns has had on the am
