As we reported earlier in the month, the Europe Cup was taking place in Bucharest, Romania over the last weekend of September. The format was made up of pairs, singles and a team competition. The players would earn points for their respective teams depending on how far they finished in each contest. Some thirty countries from over Europe were represented. Dorset's Scott Mitchell was once again donning his England shirt to assist the English crusade.
The first event was the pairs, Scott was paired up with his namesake Mr Waites from Yorkshire. This proved to be a perfect match as the two Scotts won the Gold medal. Winning their sixth match against fellow English pairing of Glen Durrant and James Wilson 6-5 in an extremely close final.
The following day was the four man team competition, each man to play against each of their opponents over one leg, first team to nine legs. England battled to the final where they faced a strong squad from Wales. This was another superb display of darts with the Welsh taking the victory 9-7, a Silver medal for the England team.
The singles was the next event, Scott played well making it through to the third round where Michal Ondo of Czech Republic proved too strong ending the Dorset lad's run. The overall competition was won by the men of England, giving Scott two Gold and one Silver medal to bring home.

Congratulations must go to Scotty Mitchell who has been given the honour of representing England once again.
This time he has been selected to play in the elite four man side in the Europe Cup held this year in Romania.

Let's hope he continues the success he has had when previously wearing the white and red shirt.
