This week I start with some sad news for the League, long standing player and most of all our Friend, Tommy Bell has passed away. Tommy would have been seen on the oche with his brother Billy, and in recent years whilst not playing so much would always be at matches and knockouts watching the darts.
Our thoughts are with all the family at this time, rest in peace our friend Tommy.
