Unicorn Darts - News - Personal statement from James Wade
The Power has pledged his support to England colleague James Wade, who was diagnosed with clinical depression, bipolar and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
As SunSport revealed exclusively yesterday Wade spent 28 days in The Priory.

*This used to be a great blind draw that was held weekly that Tracy and Mike ran. About 4 years ago the tournament folded for reasons I still do not understand. This was the best steel-tip weekly tournament period. Players would come from all over the Bay. 28 to 36 players was not uncommon every week. The new owner would like to see steel tip darts supported with this tournament again.

#darts Dartoid's World :|: Column 44 :: Anderson's the new star in town. (But keep an eye on John Part.)
The Old Dart Coach likes to stay with a routine. He’s living proof that “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks.” One reason may be because an “old dog” doesn’t want to do tricks. But that’s beside the point...
The ODC also likes to say that the month of May in America provides sport with the best songs of the year. It starts with the Kentucky Derby and the University of Louisville band playing “My Old Kentucky Home” and ends with the Jim Nabors singing “Back Home Again in Indiana” at the Indy 500.In the world of the PDC every TV event in any month starts with the players having their own “walk-on” music. Gary Anderson uses “Jump Around” by a band called House of Pain. During the playing of the 2009 Grand Prix of Darts in Dublin Anderson claimed Adrian Lewis was jumping around during the playing of their match. Lewis took the match 3 sets to 2. Anderson’s message to Lewis? “Pay backs are a bitch” which isn’t a song but could be next time Anderson makes an entrance.
Dartoid's World :|: Column 44 :: Anderson's the new star in town. (But keep an eye on John Part.)
Lloyd plays since 1999 in the PDC and played in all Major tournaments over the years, even Premier League. He won two of them: 2004 the World Grand Prix in Dublin, 2005 the World Matchplay in Blackpool. He didn't play the World Championship with a lot of success, only in 2002 he reached the semi-finals, where he lost to Peter Manley. He often reached the last rounds of the Pro Tour Events and more then once had to play Phil Taylor in the finals...and lost. Between 2005 and 2007 and only with a short break he was the Worlds number 1. Today he sits on rank 13 of the PDC Order of Merit.
REIGNING BDO world darts champions Martin Adams and Trina Gulliver helped a Spalding event raise £1,400 for Help for Heroes.
Deeping-based England skipper “Wolfie” and the nine-time ladies’ champion Gulliver, dubbed the golden girl of darts, were invited by organiser Ian Tilley to compete at the Spalding Services Club exhibition.

POLITICS... I’m not a fan! But we are lucky enough to live in a place that gives everyone the right to do what they want, just so long as they don’t break any rules, writes Andy Relf.
You are probably thinking I’ve lost the plot here somewhat, but don’t worry, I haven’t.
Actually I’m still the same person that I’ve always been... I don’t think that I’ve changed much over the years, and I’m happy that I’ve got a great wide circle of friends.
What has this got to do with darts? I started out back in the early 1990’s playing in the local leagues with my friends, and my nature led me to wanting to try to see just how far I can take it – I think they call it ambition!
