Chris loses out at World darts event thumbnail

THERE was disappointment for Antrim darts ace Chris Gilliland when he made his BDO World Championship debut on Saturday.
Chris, who had been the first qualifier for the event at the Lakeside, took on fellow first timer Justin Thompson - the Australian National Singles champ.
But Chris was undaunted - after all, why should he be?
He had fought through seven matches at the qualifier at Bridlington in September taking some significant scalps along the way, including a win over 2016 quarter-finalist Dennis Harbour.
His first match in the main event was evenly contested, but Thompson edged it 3-2 to advance to the first round proper.
