BDO rankings watch: Wesley Harms reclaims top spot, Dave Parletti up to no. 4 and Leighton Bennett breaks into the top 50

Wesley Harms has reclaimed top spot in the BDO men’s rolling rankings ahead of this weekend’s England Open, in Selsey.

The top spot, which for most of the last few years has been held by Glen Durrant and Mark McGeeney, has switched hands several times so far this season.

Along with Harms, who had a spell as number one earlier this year, both Richard Veenstra and Jim Williams have spent time at the top of the BDO rankings.

Dave Parletti has moved up to a career-high ranking of fourth, Scott Mitchell has risen two spots from seventh to fifth, and Gary Robson and Wayne Warren have both climbed two places each to eighth and ninth respectively.

A profitable weekend in Switzerland for Francis Carragher, which saw him reach a semi-final and quarter-final, has pushed him up to joint-33rd, eight places up from 41st.

Reigning BDO world youth champion Leighton Bennett‘s meteoric rise continues as he has broken into the top 50 for the first time. The 13-year-old is up to joint-46th and, with four empty boxes still to fill up, the teenager is expected to go even higher.
