Dan Ford from Derbyshire FYFC is the winner of the 2017 NFYFC Darts Championships at Annual Convention and bagged a winning prize of £100.
The ‘just for fun’ competition has become a popular Saturday morning event at Convention, attracting more than 100 people this year to compete and watch the darts. Dan was thrilled to be named this year’s top player.
“It was great to go through the competition with other YFC members – we all got on really well,” said Dan. “I was feeling fairly confident going into the competition, I do play darts quite often so I’d put the practice in!”
Andrew Hoskin from Devon FYFC came second in the competition, and won £50, while losing semi finalists Jake Sloan from Northumberland FYFC and Ben White from Devon FYFC both won £25 each.
There were also a £25 cash award for the highest placed person of the opposite sex, which was won by Ellie Marris from Norfolk FYFC. Ellie said: “I play darts with a team so I felt confident going into the competition. I only found out about it by reading the programme when I arrived! It was really nice to play alongside other YFC members and there was a great atmosphere between everyone competing. I’m definitely keen to enter again next year!”
Henry Smith from Lancashire FYFC won £25 for being the winner of the six dart challenge.
Overall winner Dan Ford said he was really enjoying this year’s Annual Convention and had plans to watch other YFC members compete too. “I’m looking forward to watching the Cheerleading and Street Dance finals tomorrow,” said Dan.
