Mitchell and Hughes will return for the bwin Grand Slam of Darts


Dorset’s Scott Mitchell and Jamie Hughes will return to the bwin Grand Slam of Darts next month after qualifying among the final five BDO representatives for the Wolves Civic event.

The £450,000 tournament sees stars from both the PDC and BDO systems competing live on Sky Sports across nine days.

Lakeside champion Glen Durrant, runner-up Danny Noppert and BDO World Trophy winner Peter Machin had already been confirmed and they will now be joined by the next five non-qualified players from the BDO rankings, including Mitchell, the 2015 Lakeside champion, who will be making his third successive Grand Slam appearance.
