NIDO Inter Area Counties
The NIDO Inter Area Counties have some impressive darters in their ranks, including Kyle McKinstry, Neil Duff (pictured), Geoff Wylie, Chris Gilliland, Peter Shaw, Roy Baillie, Roy Montgomery and big John Elder to name a few. The highest ever NIDO average was set by Neil Duff this year at a 34+ average... Some throwing for a best of 7.
Current league standings
We are three games into the NIDO Inter Area County season. Ballyclare man Neil Duff from Area 2 leads the way closely followed by Area 9’s Kyle Mckinstry and Alan McKnight.
Neil Duff from Area 2 scored a 34.93 in his third game moving him up seven places to first place in the rankings. Other big movers in the rankings were Alan McKnight from Area 9 moving up twelve places to third overall with a 31.81 average in his last game. Gary Eliot from Area 12 moves up twenty nine places to 7th in the rankings after a 31.81 average himself. Larnes Kevin Magill moves up into the top ten in the rankings with an impressive 29.44 average for Area 2b, which was the 3rd best score in the top ten for game three, well done Kevin.
Special mention to Roy Baillie who continues to show the youth how it’s done with steady averages sitting in rank 6th overall.
Kyle Mckinstry en route to the BDO World Championship in January has been steady in all three games but dropped to a 27.18 average in his third game, relinquishing his number 1 rank to Neil Duff. Neil put in a 34.93 average which is the highest all season and highest ever in NIDO history. Neil’s informed me that it would have been higher but for a missed 154 finish, unbelievable average. It will be interesting going into the fourth game…
