Darts fans will be seeing double Dutch as two of the sport’s brightest stars are set lock horns later this year.

Five-time world champion Raymond van Barneveld and Premier League 2013 winner Michael van Gerwen are on the bill for the ‘Over The Top’ darts show.

The show will also feature two-time world champ Dennis Priestly, of Mexborough, plus luminaries such as Australian Simon Whitlock and multiple major winner James Wade.

The event will take place at the Barnsley Metrodome on Friday, September 27.

Mr van Barneveld, Winner of the 2012 Grand Slam of Darts, said: “It is a fantastic line-up and it will be great to play in front the fans there. We play Pro Tour events at the Metrodome but they are behind closed doors so it is brilliant to be able to play in front of a crowd.

“I have met a few people when I’ve been in Barnsley and I know that they are passionate about darts.

“The Sheffield Premier League is one of my favourites in terms of the crowd so I’m really looking forward to this event.

“A few of the players will be aiming for local pride but we are all very competitive and will be out to win, which makes for a great show.”
