Bray People - - SPORT -

DARTS play­ers from all over Wick­low de­scended on the Wood­pecker bar and lounge in Ash­ford last Thurs­day night for the an­nual awards presentation night. Three­time World Cham­pion John Lowe was in at­ten­dance to present the awards.

A fundraiser for the Make a Wish foun­da­tion was also run on the night by county sec­re­tary Mick Lott and his team of Stacey Hollingsworth and Karen Mur­rey. 20 play­ers took on Lowe and the man who the leg­endary Phil Taylor says has the great­est ac­tion in the game showed class is per­ma­nent with a mas­ter­class in scor­ing and fin­ish­ing. He made time for all his fans and proved to be the gentle­man he is por­trayed as.

A sin­gles com­pe­ti­tion ran con­cur­rently with Rath­new’s Pat ‘Bomber’ Mur­phy de­feat­ing Glen­malure’s Shane ‘Log­ger’ Byrne in a top-class fi­nal.

Mick Lott, speak­ing after­wards, said, “It was a su­per night for an ex­cel­lent char­ity, a plea­sure to raise €1,555 for such a wor­thy cause. Spe­cial thanks to Stacey and Karen for all the work they put in be­hind the scenes also the lo­cal busi­nesses such as The Wood­pecker, Kelly’s Tro­phies in Bray, The Glen­view Ho­tel, Kevin De­vaney (INDO sec­re­tary) and Lough Cabin Glen­dalough”.

Re­flect­ing on the year in gen­eral, Lott added: “We as a com­mit­tee would also like to thank all the play­ers for a great year. It was tough go­ing but was def­i­nitely a case of qual­ity over quan­tity as de­spite be­ing down in num­bers the stan­dard was on a whole new level for the league. Many thanks to all the lo­cal pub­li­cans for their con­tin­ued sup­port. Cham­pi­ons for the year Di­vi­sion 1
