Punching the dartboard..."It's all part of the game Dave."

Former World Number 1 indeed.

Great to see the name Colin 'H20' Lloyd AND DartsnBooze back in one seamless thread.

Forgive me for being pedantic DnB, but I cannot have the Great Man of H2O Consumption misquoted as above.

Please note it's "part and parcel". 

You wouldn't misquote a Shakespeare soliloquy would you? Please show due respect for the Immortal Bard of Colchester.

HI Alun.

You're quite right. It was all a bit slap dash and it leaves me with nothing but an apology as I doff my cap to your greater knowledge of the man. Please find it in your heart to forgive me for typing off the top of my head and not forming a google approach to find and correct my errors. Haha.

What did you make of the latest Welsh bastions "Price and Clayton" on day 1? No finer sight than an ex rugby player and a tunnelling ferret gracing the stage for the pride of all Welsh men and their ladies gathering in their working men's clubs throughout the valleys with hanging portraits adored on the walls of their Welsh heroes Leighton Rees and your namesake Alun [Evans].

Guzzling down endless pints and singing Delilah and other Welsh ditties with withering daffodils and floppy leaks protruding out of pockets and lapels. All the while cheering every thrown dart, with the loudest cheer saved for the Welshman landing the winning dart. How the choirs sang as one as of their own marched into round 2.

A most welcoming in the hillsides. Cheers!

Apology accepted DnB. It takes a BIG man to apologise and I accept it magnamanimioumously.

I didn't see any of the Day 1 action as it happens, and don't even get nationalistic about our Darts players. Never did, even in the heyday of ALAN Evans (strictly speaking he was actually DAVID), Leighton and the rest of them. Alan had a reputation shall we say. I even missed out on a chance to see Leighton play in the 1976 News of the World championships - which I do regret - but was studying for exams. 

Allah only knows when we will provide a world title challenger. It comes to something when The Lily of Llanelli was our last proper shot at a World Champion darts player !!

what about the towering rock of welsh granite that was richie burnett,let alone the stylish sophisticated action of the great ceri morgan

LOL. Enjoyed Richie's one and only World title win. Came at a time when I needed cheering up.

As for Ceri, surely he rather than Rodders should have been ennobled as 'The Prince of Style' ?

Here's another great lost Welsh name to conjure with…… "Lamb Chop".

after extensive research i have managed to uncover the identity of the darts player who mischievously went under the nickname of "lamb chop" and can reveal him to be Ritchie Davies.

The arrow from aberdare is obviously best known for his barnstorming run to the 2003 BDO final,beating gary anderson in the semis,before losing narrowly to the legendary raymond van barneveld in the final itself.

Having retired in 2005 he now lives quietly in west wales shearing sheep.

Marshall's final was HORRIBLE. I couldn't even get the energy to cheer him from the safety of the sofa.

I could have cried for Lamb Chop though.

Lloyd has played at the darts night at my local cricket club in the past year or so.
