I was born in Yorkshire, february 1981. 18 months
old when I threw my first darts, played until I was 12 then stopped! Didn’t
pick up a dart again until I was 21.
Progressed through the Doncaster monday night and
district darts leagues initially then in 2008 played super league for the Lord
Conyers. My first season caught the county selectors eye and I now play
regularly for Yorkshire.
My BDO career started in november 2008, reached
last 32 in Ireland where I was beaten by Darryl Fitton. I had registered 10
ranking points and played well enough to realise that I could hold my own and
maybe cause a few upsets in the future. The Dutch Open was next in February
2009, a massive tournament, and to reach the last 32 again was a real
achievement. My darts have gone from strength to strength and was over joyed to
win my first ranked tour singles tournament, The German Open, in April 2010
The new chapter started in Jan 2012, when I
attended the PDC Qualifying school in Barnsley, and on the third day won
through many tough games to ‘win’ my tour card. My new goal is to qualify for
the Ally Pally world championships!
