Lloyd thought about throwing darts away

FORMER world number one darts player Colin Lloyd says he thought about quitting when he suffered a lengthy slump in form.

The former builder, 36, says he was stung by criticism by commentators and ex-players as he slid down the PDC rankings between 2006 and 2009 and wondered if he should give up the sport all together. (full story at the link...) Wednesday, March 17, 2010, 12:11

Premier League 3/4/2010 King v. Jenkins

Jenkins had some solid chances, but King did not miss an opportunity and wins 8-5.

Premier League 3/4/2010 Baxter v. Whitlock...

Baxter played flawlessly against Whitlock to win 8-6

Premier League 3/4/2010 - Lewis v Wade

Lewis v. Wade was a great match with Wade taking the early lead, but Lewis was able to battle back to a 3-3 tie at the break. After the break Lewis again built a lead, and threatened to win all the points while at a 7-4 advantage. Lewis however was having none of it and forced a 7-7 tie. Favorite checkout of the match... Wade bull, bull, d16 to finish the 132.
