Bo’ness may not have the world darts winner, but Alan ‘Chuck’ Norris is every bit a champion in their eyes!
Norris, who reached the final of the BDO World Championships at Lakeside on Sunday was matching opponent Stephen ‘Bullet’ Bunting dart for dart until leg three, when he started to run out of steam.
This was the fourth year Norris had competed at the prestigious event and, while missing out on the crown, still walked away, head held high, with the runner-up spot and a cheque for £35,000, his best result to date in this competition.
Never forgetting his roots, however, while on the podium at the final presentation, Norris was heard to comment: “Apparently it’s back to Monday night darts at Bo’ness with the dream team.”
Norris was, of course, referring to the Crown Bar where he practices with a group of mates when he is not on the tournament circuit.
