Part aiming for World Championship return after rejoining Unicorn Darts

Three-time World Champion John Part has his sights set on a return to the World Darts Championship after re-joining Team Unicorn.

The Canadian legend has not featured in the PDC's show-piece since his First Round exit to Keegan Brown in 2015, but hopes a return to his roots can kick-start an inspired run of form.

Part has returned to Unicorn after a seven-year absence and will also take on a role as ambassador and mentor to young players.

"It's just great to be back," said Part. "I always felt very comfortable with Unicorn. A great product range, leaders in their field and they love to innovate.

"I still have a great passion for playing, but the roles of ambassador and mentor appeal to me greatly. Darts is my life and I will be honoured to represent the Unicorn brand, get involved in helping other players and pass on years of experience.

"It would be great to get back to the World Championship as a player and a commentator!" Added the 50-year-old, who is also part of the Sky Sports commentary team.

Having lost his Tour Card at the end of last season, 'Darth Maple' bounced back at the first time of asking by winning through Qualifying School in January to immediately return to the PDC circuit.

Canada's World Cup star admits his Q School success has injected a new lease of life into his career and he hopes he can make inroads in the Order of Merit in the coming months.

"That was a really big boost for my confidence and belief," added Part. "I know I can still play to a really high standard - I need more days like that.

"I definitely feel up to the challenge of playing. I am 50 now but there are still possibilities for me on the circuit.

"My mentality hasn’t changed, I want to taste those big games and the success that goes with it. 

"I love the commentary for Sky Sports, it's great to analyse and I can still be awestruck by watching a game but I feel I've still got a good two or three years as a player to achieve."

Part won the most recent of his three world titles as a Unicorn player when he defeated Kirk Shepherd in the 2008 final at Alexandra Palace and is the only player other than Phil Taylor to have won a world title in three different venues: Lakeside, The Circus Tavern and Ally Pally.
