If you think you could give Phil “The Power” Taylor a run for his money with the arrows, why not try your hand against the man he credits for launching his career, his former coach Eric “The Crafty Cockney” Bristow.

Eric is playing exhibition matches in Hurst Green Village Hall this Saturday. Ticket stubs will go into a draw and 12 lucky audience members will be picked at random to join him at the oche.

There will also be a chance to win an opportunity to play him via a charity raffle, which will have lots of darts-related prizes. More raffle prizes are required; call 07889 544327.

Proceeds are for the Newfield School for severely disabled children, at Blackburn. Doors open at 6 pm. The evening will be compered by professional MC Paul Booth and there is an audience Q&A session. Tickets costs £10 on the door or reserved in advance,call 075300 45465 or visit www.hogsheadpromotions.co.uk
