PDC McCoys Premier League-Week 8 Preview

The McCoy Premier League returns to Scotland this week to a small town called Glasgow. Its always been a good night when we have been here, and this week should be no different.

Week EightMarch 28 - SECC, Glasgow
Adrian Lewis v Andy Hamilton
Simon Whitlock v Robert Thornton
Phil Taylor v Raymond van Barneveld
Gary Anderson v Wes Newton
Michael van Gerwen v James Wade

First on stage of the night is Jackpot against the Hammer. Last week both players won there matches with Lewis beating Thornton and Hamilton beating the Wizard. Its getting a bit desperate for Lewis now thou has he needs to win all the remaining matches if he stands a chance of making the cut off point. Both players will be on it and should be a cracker.

Next up are both the losers from Lewis and Hamilton. Whitlock and Thornton never have boring matches and the Thorn will have hometown advantage, will this make a difference to the Wizard? I don't think so not a lot phases him.

The match of the night could be Taylor v van Barneveld. The rivalry is has old has time with the Power normally coming out on top, but Taylor hasn't been Taylor for a few weeks so this could be Barneys chance. Its a betting nightmare too!!

Another Scot, Anderson takes to the stage next against the down and out Newton. The Warrior can play his own game now has he has little to no chance of qualifying now. He could give Ando some problems and mess up his chances of making the play-offs.

Last on is my match of the night with van Gerwen taking on Wade. Both players are still in awesome form, and if these two gladiators are on it, it will be a true Tungsten battle of the highest order.


This weeks Walk-On Girls are the returning Scottish duo of Jade Leigh Hunt and Debbie Shaw. We last saw both the girls at Aberdeen and they did a fantastic job and gained a few Darts Family followers too. I hope they both have another fantastic night at the Darts.
