In Brief:  Born in Chelmsford, Richard is in his early Fifties and has played in the Chelmsford & District league for 23 years for various teams with much success, winning the Division One title no less than Six times and has been runners-up on four occasions.  Richard is the League Secretary and has been for nearly twenty years (1983). Richard started playing in 1977 in the Marconi League were he won the Pairs tournament. Richard also plays in the Ridley's Darts & Dominoes league in which Richard lost 2-1 in the Singles KO final last season. Richard has a long list of memorable moments over the years, his most special moment being in 1981 when he won the Captain and Secretaries KO competition and his daughter Victoria was born. In his 25 year darting, Richard has won six Holiday competitions; three Friday Club league titles plus the 180 trophy; the Witham league (with the Swan); the Dunmow league (with the Whalebone); Ridleys league (with the Ship); and a Yellow Advertiser Mixed Pairs game (with the Two Brewers). Finally, I would like to add to Richard's successes, the Chelmsford Open, in which he has organised for the past two years, and hopefully will do again later this year.
