PAINTER: NOT A GLOSSY WIN

Daily Mirror - - SPORT -

KEVIN ‘The Artist’ Painter made no apolo­gies for a sketchy per­for­mance that earned him a likely shot at Phil Taylor.

In the open­ing match at the world cham­pi­onship, Painter, 49, (right) stum­bled to a 3-1 win over Jamie Caven, with a 124 check­out on the bulls­eye.

But he said: “I’ve had prob­lems away from the oche, like split­ting up with the mis­sus. Hope­fully, this is the start of some­thing brighter.”
