Darts players from across Scotland will descend on Kirkcaldy this weekend to honour one of the greatest players of all time.

The second annual Jocky Wilson Darts Tournament takes place at the Gunners Club on Saturday in the home town of the former two-time world champion, who sadly passed away in March 2012 at the age of 62.

The event was launched last year by organiser Lee Bruce, along with Jocky’s grandson John McNab.

The men will compete for a minumum first prize of £1000 which could go up depending on entrants, while the ladies section has a minimum first prize of £300.

Registration takes place from 10.30 to 11.30 a.m. All enquiries to Lee Bruce on 07793 458153.

Last year’s winner Stewart Rattray - a former Scottish National Champion - will be out to defend his trophy.

Tournament sponsors include Gunners Club, Rosturk House Ltd, Weavers Bar, Randolph Tyres and Exhausts, West End Bar Lochgelly and Kirkcaldy District Darts League.
