Barneveld hits nine-dart finish
Peter Manley and Raymond van Barneveld
Barneveld was in superb form against Manley
Raymond van Barneveld hit a perfect nine-dart finish in the Holsten Premier League in Bournemouth on Thursday.

The 38-year-old, who joined the Professional Darts Corporation earlier this season, produced the perfect leg during an 8-3 win over Peter Manley.

Later, the Dutchman fought back from 7-4 down to snatch a 7-7 draw with PDC world champion Phil Taylor.

It was the pair's first meeting since Van Barneveld's defection from the British Darts Organisation.

"It's unbelievable - I've hit a few nine-darters in smaller tournaments but never on television," said Van Barneveld, who is second behind Taylor in the table.

"I've not got many dreams left in darts any more. One of them is to become the PDC World Champion and another was to hit a televised nine-darter, so I've achieved one of them."
