Grand Slam chal­lenge for The Boss

East Kilbride News - - THE BACK PAGE -

Ross‘The Boss’Mont­gomery will face the big­gest test of his ca­reer this week when he com­petes in the Grand Slam of Darts.

The best play­ers from the BDO and PDC will face off in Wolver­hamp­ton and the Green­hills ace will play top seed and world num­ber one Michael van Ger­wen, Rob Cross and Joe Mur­nan in Group A.

Ross told the News: “David beat Go­liath, so I’ll just go out and give it my best shot.

“He’s got noth­ing to prove by go­ing out and ham­mer­ing me.

“At the end of the day th­ese guys do it for a liv­ing, while I play for fun so there’s no pres­sure on me to go and win it or any­thing.

“It’ll be a fun ex­pe­ri­ence and I’ll just go and en­joy it.

“The only pres­sure is to do my­self jus­tice, but if I don’t do well it’s not the end of the world for me be­cause I’ve got a lot of other tour­na­ments com­ing up to look for­ward to.

“I’m just glad to be in­vited with all the suc­cess I’ve had in the BDO this sea­son.”

The Grand Slam of Darts will be tele­vised live on Sky Sports from Satur­day un­til Novem­ber 19.
