Star-studded Yorkshire, the BDO Inter-Counties League Premier Division leaders, roll into the town of March this weekend.

They take on Cambridgeshire at the March GER Club on Saturday and Sunday and a cracking match is anticipated.

Yorkshire include current BDO world men’s champion Scott Waites in their side plus the 2001 Lakeside champion John Walton.

And they can also call on England internationals Martin Atkins, Garry Thompson, Brian Dawson, Lorraine Winstanley and Beau Greaves
