11th January 2015
Scott Mitchell fulfilled his lifelong dream winning the BDO World Championship 2015 in an enthralling final fought right to the end.
Scott (30.87) held his nerve to overcome the three times previous world champion Martin Adams (30.85) 7-6 in sets ending a superb and successful year on the circuit.
Speaking to the BBC: "This is quite amazing. Halfway through that I really wished I was watching it, I didn't really want to be up here. It's everything that dreams are made of really, I can't believe it."
Scotty missed a match winning dart in the 12th set on the wire of Double 16 from a 104 finish, Adams battled back with an incredible 12 dart leg in the deciding leg to send the match into a last set. However Scott rallied vitally with a cracking 158 shot out under pressure to immediately break in the decisive set.
Scott battled tremendously well and showed class firing in a 180 to start off his championship winning leg. Adams pushed hard but Scott won the last set 3-1 with legs of 15, 16 and 14 averaging just shy of 100, sealing the 2015 title.
Massive congratulations from all of Dorset goes to the new Lakeside Champion.
Scott is in action once again taking to the stage as a World Champion for Dorset against Somerset next weekend.
