A darts tournament in memory of young Bo’ness man raised almost £500 for charity.

The tournament on August 26, saw 48 players from the Bo’ness and Falkirk area take part with the eventual winner being local pro darts player Allan Norris.

Dad David, who plays darts for the Crown Inn in the Falkirk darts league and also plays for East Stirling Counties, organised the event at the Bo’ness pub, which has four dart boards.

David said: “We wanted to organise something to mark our son’s passing.

‘‘He was just 22 and was a groundsman at Falkirk FC’s stadium with so much to look forward to.

‘‘The club was really good to us as they gave a signed strip and offered tickets to a match for the auction.

‘‘Allan Norris was able to come along on the night and although he won the tournament, he donated the cash prize back to our nominated charity — Self-Awareness.

‘‘In the end we raised £472 for the charity and we’d like to thank everyone who took part and our sponsors.”

Sponsors were Falkirk Football Club, Bellsburn Motors, Bo’ness Blue, Horn’s the Baker, Sweets n’ Things, Barber’s Chair and Alchemy Inns.
