DORSET darts star Scott Mitchell has targeted a place in England’s European Championship squad receiving a call-up for the Six Nations tournament in Scotland next month.

Mitchell was on standby for the event in Glenrothes but was asked to step up after new BDO world champion Stephen Bunting, initially in the side, switched to the PDC circuit.

The news came on the back of Mitchell’s seventh senior title success in the Romanian Open where he travelled all the way to Bucharest only to face fellow Dorset player Eddie White.

Mitchell eventually won the epic tussle for the title 6-5.
