Mark McGeeney (born 28 June 1972) is an English darts player from Coventry, England who competes in British Darts Organisation events.

Career[edit]

BDO[edit]

In August 2010 Mark won the Weoley Castle Open beating Kevin Taylor in the Final. In September 2014 he won the England Classic, he beat Sam Hewson in the Quarter-final before beating Wesley Harms in the Final. In April 2015 he won the Lincolnshire Open beating Joshua Richardson in the Final. In September 2015 he won the British Open beating Scott Waites in the final.

McGeeney is currently the world number one as a result of reaching back-to-back Winmau World Masters finals, losing to Glen Durrant and Krzysztof Ratajski in 2016 and 2017 respectively, and winning the Dutch Open. In 2018, after two previous second round losses, McGeeney reached the final against Durrant. McGeeney came from 6-4 down in sets to lead 2-0 in the decider, but eventually lost 7-6. He therefore became only the second player in World Championship history after Mike Gregory in 1992 to miss championship darts (one at D18 and one at D9) and lose the match. The following month, McGeeney retained his Dutch Open title, beating Durrant 3-1 in sets in the final.
