Sad news today with the passing of Olly Croft. He helped me a lot when I first came to the UK and always showed me kindness and respect. Without him I doubt Darts would be anywhere near where it is today…. thank you Olly ????

Sad day with the passing of Olly Croft.
No matter what your thought of him, he was instrumental in the rise of darts and should be regarded highly for his contribution. @BDOdarts @OfficialPDC @DartsWDF #darts #DartsFamily ??
