Gary Anderson thrilled his Berwickshire fans with a scintilating display of darts to win Sunday’s Dalgleish Berwickshire Open, staged in the Volunteer Hall, Duns.

A large crowd turned out to see this premier darts event when four local darts players took on four professional darting stars to raise money for the local Multiple Sclerosis charity group.

The event was a superb afternoon of darts offering local fans a chance to meet the top players and even bid in a charity auction to play them all to raise funds for this worthwhile cause which aids local sufferers. The gratifying total of £675 weas raised.

In the competition Barry Dalgleish from Galashiels played Berwickshire and Scotland’s very own former Premier League champion Gary ‘The Flying Scotsman’ Anderson while Darren Bohme from Duns lost to Ted Hankey, Kenny Latimer from Birgham lost to Dean Winstanley and Callum Donaldson from Duns lost to Michael Smith.

Gary Anderson said: “I am glad to be back in the Borders and its great to see my supporters and friends here.”

In the semi-finals Dean Winstanley defeated Ted Hankey and Gary Anderson beat Michael Smith.

Anderson gave a superb display in the final beating Winstanley 4-0 with an average of 106
