De Vos shocks West at Lakeside

Dean Winstanley got off to a winning start at the BDO World Championships at Frimley Green with a victory over Joey ten Berge.

Last year's beaten finalist saw off the challenge of the Dutchman 3-1 to progress to the second round.

Belgian Geert De Vos pulled off one of the shocks of the round as he knocked out 11th seed Tony West .

He started the match with a 15-dart leg before going on to win 3-1, clinching the match with a double 10.

Alan Norris also progressed as he beat 14th seed Benito van de Pas 3-2.

The 18-year-old Dutchman twice fought back from a set down to force the decider but Norris won the match with a 74 check-out.

In the women's event Anastasia Dobromyslova beat Julie Gore 2-0 to secure her place in the semi-final.
