Darts: Taylor pays personal tribute to Jocky Wilson

Have your say

Multiple world darts champion Phil Taylor has paid his own tribute to twice title-holder Jocky Wilson, who died on Saturday.

Wilson, 62, who won world titles in 1982 and 1989, passed away at his home in Kirkcaldy on Saturday after suffering with the lung disorder chronic pulmonary obstructive disease.

Taylor won twice in the UK Open qualifiers in Barnsley over the weekend and then the Stoke thrower dedicated his victories to his former pairs partner.

Taylor said: “That’s for Jocky. He was my pairs partner for many years and I loved him to bits. I’ve got a lot of good memories about Jocky and he’s one of those people that when you mention his name it brings a big smile to your face.

“He was a great character.”
