DIARY OF A DART PLAYER WITH ANDY RELF – Everything’s going great for me... that is, except for my knee!

Have your say

THINGS are going great on the dart board at the moment.

Confidence is high, I’m scoring great, and my finishing has improved almost to a point where I’m happy with it.

For the second week running in Superleague I took the man of the match award with a 28.49 average per dart, which was also best in the county for the second consecutive week.

I managed another 180 which keeps me top of that battle with 11 maximums in 13 matches.

Our team was playing against Lewes, and there is always a healthy rivalry between the two teams, and this time the result went our way with a 5-4 win.

On Friday I made my way over to Hastings to play a league match for Rileys. In a very one-sided match, we rolled out 12-0 winners, and top the league also.

The next day I headed off out on the mountain bike, ending up at Rushlake Green Flower Show after a jaunt up the Cuckoo Trail.

I saw a few familiar faces whilst there, and got some positive comments about the diary from a couple of avid readers... namely Mick Woodhams, who was heading towards the cup cake stand, I believe... and Henry Grant, who was supposed to be head of car parking but was more interested in his ice-cream when I met him!

Monday saw me take part in the first night of a singles league in Hastings, where I registered a win and a draw, which, considering my opponents, I’m pretty happy with.

Unfortunately it is not all good news this week, as I found out on Friday that I require further surgery on my right knee. If I don’t have this done now, then I will need a full replacement in a couple of years, so having this operation is a bit of a necessity!

Finally I head off to Derby this Friday to try to qualify for the PDC European Tour in Stuttgart in September.
