Scott Mitchell – England Captain

sportinglife.com

This morning we wake up to the news that BDO World Champion Scott ‘Scotty Dog’ Mitchell has been handed the England Captains armband for the upcoming BDO British Internationals in Wales (10-12 April).

After a disappointing couple of months – Scott has dropped to third in the BDO Mens Rankings – this will be a great confidence boost and a timely reminder of the high regard in which Scott is held by the Darting Community.

The ever popular Scotty Dog was over the moon with the news this morning when I caught up with him… “I feel totally honoured! Lots of credit has to go to people I’ve played for and against over the years in our little darting area, as they have moulded me to the darts character I am. It’s a job you wouldn’t ever turn down. I hope as a new look team we can bring more success to team England.”

Scott’s friends and family all took to social media as the news broke last night. His daughter, who recently made the Dorset A Senior squad had this to say on Facebook – “Another “Oh my gosh” moment in the Mitchell household tonight….not only do we live with a World Champion, we now live with the England Captain! We’re all so incredibly proud!”
