Josh Rock wins 1st Ballyclare Linfield FC Supporters Club Darts Comp

Area 2d dart thrower Josh Rock won the competition last weekend, beating Coleraines Rodney Kane 5-2 in the final.

A worthy winner by all accounts, playing superb darts all day. This win backs up Josh’s selection for the Celtic Challenge tro take place this month. Josh sitting 6th in the overall NIDO average rankings is playing superb darts at the minute. Great to see Josh step up from the youth system and thrive on the mens tour and comps around the country.

Hard luck to Rodney who remarked ‘Josh was nice enough to let me win a couple of legs’.
