Weekly Dartscast Episode 272: Andrew Gilding, Grant Sampson, Euro Tour and Challenge Tour Reviews

Co-hosts Alex Moss and Burton DeWitt are back with a new episode after the Gibraltar Darts Trophy.

Alex and Burton start the show with a review of last weekend’s Gibraltar Darts Trophy and discuss if title winner Damon Heta can kick on in the majors during the rest of the year, and also if missed match darts in the final will impact runner-up Peter Wright going forward.

Then, recent European Tour finalist Andrew Gilding (13:32) stops by to look back on his career so far, his first run in the PDC and that infamous run to the UK Open semi-finals, as well as his resurgence in 2022, reaching multiple finals on the ProTour, and his hopes for the rest of the year.

Alex and Burton continue the show with a look at the European Championship draw for next week, before looking back at the Challenge Tour season and successes for Scott Williams, Robert Owen and Danny van Trijp.

Next, Grant Sampson (49:56) joins us after winning the South Africa Qualifier for the PDC World Championship. Grant talks through his time in darts so far, how he picked up the game again while at home during the pandemic, working with Charles Losper, and then beating Devon Petersen on the way to winning the qualifier to secure a debut at Ally Pally in December.

Alex and Burton then close out the show by giving their thoughts on the WDF’s latest World Masters update, before delving into some listener questions!
