Darts fans are in for an exciting year as Kirkcaldy celebrates sporting legend Jocky Wilson.
Not only will members of the public be given the chance to take on two-time world champion Gary Anderson but big names from the sport including three-time world champion Martin “Wolfie” Adams, Steve Beaton and Wayne Mardle will play an exhibition match in the town.
To gear up for the darts extravaganza, Fife Darts Association will be organising competitions in pubs across Fife to decide who will get to play Anderson on stage at the Adam Smith Theatre during an event celebrating Wilson on June 16.
The association will release further details of local events in the coming weeks. Tickets for the event at the Adam Smith Theatre, brought to the town by Kirkcaldy4All and Fife Council, will go on sale on Friday.
Wilson claimed his first world title in 1982 by beating John Lowe. Seven years later, he was world champion again, defeating great rival Eric Bristow.
This year marks 30 years since Wilson won his second world title. He died on March 24 2012 aged 62.
The former miner and construction worker played in local pubs, notably the Lister Bar and Alpha Bar in Kirkcaldy, until his darts career took off in the early 1980s.
