Oliver Croft OBE … 17th November 1929 – 23rd November 2019
Der Darts-Urvater ist heute im Alter von 90 Jahren gestorben.
Ohne Olly Croft gäbe es den Dartsport vielleicht gar nicht, er wäre aber ganz sicher nicht, wo er heute ist. Ich habe Olly und seine Frau Lorna Ende der 1980er-Jahre kennen und schätzen gelernt.
