I first started to play
darts when I was 15 yrs old and played in a team run by the army when they
had barracks in Sheerness, we played from The Sun Inn.
I have never won the
Island singles competitions but have managed runner up several times.
However, I did win the all winners competition at Pontins and several other smaller competitions around and about.
Most of the pubs I
played for have now closed, (an omen perhaps)! Pubs like 'The
Admirals Walk' and 'The Hero' of Crimea. I now play for and
Captain 'The Nore' as well as being captain of Sheppey Super League Team.
Now in my sixties, I do not play as
often, giving the younger players a chance to shine,
with a bit of encouragement. Much of my time is spent organising competitions and
exhibitions - which I thoroughly enjoy.
My aim for the future is to promote
darts on Sheppey to a high level.
When people started to play pool, darts suffered a
lot. However, on Sheppey we are in the throws of a revival and
the leagues are getting stronger. More youngsters are taking up the
game and are enthusiastic.
My favourite player has always been John Lowe, he is a gentleman and a
great ambassador for darts although having met Eric Bristow several times,
he is a close second.
