DENNIS Priestley, one of the legendary names of darts, is heading to Featherstone Rovers for a special event later this year.
Yorkshireman Priestley, from Mexborough, won the world title in 1991 and 1994 and was a founding member of the Professional Darts Corporation (PDC).
His initial world title saw him brush aside Eric Bristow and he won the first-ever PDC world championship against Phil Taylor 6-1.
Now he is preparing for a inaugural appearance at The LD Nutrition Stadium, on Friday October 13.
Members of the audience will have the chance to play a leg against ‘The Menace’ before a question-and-answer session about his career with Sky Sports darts commentator Nigel Pearson.
Priestley said: “It’s nice for me to have an evening like this just up the road, I’m looking forward to going there.
“I’ve heard good things about Featherstone Rovers, both on and off the pitch, and I am told the Cappers Bar is a great venue.”
Priestley follows in the footsteps of Bristow, Wayne Mardle, Jelle Klaasen and Colin Lloyd in appearing at Rovers and a big turnout is expected.
He’s a member of the PDC Hall of Fame alongside the likes of Bristow, Taylor, John Lowe and commentators Sid Waddell and Dave Lanning.
Tickets are priced at just £10 for the event, which gets underway from 8.00pm.
VIP tickets are available at £20, including early entry, a buffet, priority seating and a meet-and-greet with the man himself.
