Andreas man Darren Kennish has been confirmed as the Wheelchair Darts Player of the Year, in addition to which he has also been named BDDA Player of the Year.

He was recently presented with the awards at the World ParaDarts and British Disability Darts Association ranking events at Bridlington, East Riding of Yorkshire.

Kennish finished second in his group of the BDDA British Classic, played on the Friday, going on to lose 1-3 to his regular pairs partner Mark Couchman in the semi-final.

He topped his group in the BDDA British Open, defeating Phil Lees of England 3-0 in the semi-finals before losing 3-4 in the final Couchman. There were a lot of comments on what was described as an exhibition of disability darts.
