The Deepings’ Martin ‘Wolfie’ Adams has been knocked out of the quarter-finals of the Lakeside World Championships after an enthralling encounter against Jan Dekker tonight (Friday).
Deeping St James darts legend Martin Adams fought back against the Dutch player who took an early lead.
But Dekker was too good for Adams on the night, winning by five sets to two.
Adams sailed into the quarter-finals yesterday (Thursday) with a 4-1 win over Scotland’s Ross Montgomery in the second round.
Adams, playing in a record-breaking 21st consecutive world championships, held his nerve to score his doubles and take the win despite being outscored by Montgomery for much of the tie.
The three-time former world champion progressed through the rounds this week with ease, including a surprising whitewash over last year’s runner-up Tony O’Shea in the second round.
In the preliminary round on Saturday, Adams eased past Canadian thrower David Cameron to claim a 3-1 win at Frimley Green.
