Martin ‘Wolfie’ Adams couldn’t have received a much tougher first round draw in the 2018 BDO World Championships.

Adams, who is now number 19 in the BDO rankings, must take on number one ranked Mark McGeeney, also from England, who is seeded number two for the tournament.

Adams, from Deeping, will hope his greater experience carries the day. He’s a three time former World Champion (2007,2010, 2011) and reached the final in 2015 when he lost a humdinger 7-6 against Scott Mitchell.

Adams was beaten in the last eight last year, losing 5-4 to Jeff Hughes. It will be Adams’ 25th appearance in the finals at Lakeside.

The championships run from January 6-14.
