Paul Gallagher Wins 'Darts At Home: Footballers Special'

10 May 2020

Preston North End midfielder Paul Gallagher was crowned the Darts At Home: Footballers Special champion after an impressive display on Sunday afternoon.

Gallagher was up against fellow professionals James Maddison, Declan Rice and Charlie Austin in the competition which was set up by the Professional Darts Cooperation to raise money for NHS Charities.

Gally is well known around Springfields for his ability from the oche and he didn't disappoint with a dream start in his first game, winning the first leg against Charlie Austin with a nine-darter!


The 35-year-old went on to win the second leg against Austin, averaging 75 throughout his first game.

It was then James Maddison who stepped up to the oche to take on Gally, but after the Leicester City man took a first leg lead, the North End man came from behind to take a 2-1 win and send him top of the leaderboard.

The only man left standing in his way was Declan Rice, but a 2-0 win in his final game over the West Ham and England midfielder secured top spot and he was crowned champion.
