Punch Publican Wins Darts Competition Against Reigning PDC World Champion

PDCJohn Murphy, Publican at The Ash Tree in Spennymore, beat Gary Anderson, current Professional Darts Corporation (PDC) World Champion, in a darts event organised by Punch.

John and his darts team received the opportunity to play against Gary after winning Punch’s Darts Classic competition last year. The Ash Tree came out top in a fierce competition, with over 900 teams entering the Punch Darts Classic. As well as winning £2,500 they were given the priceless opportunity to play darts against reigning PDC World Champion, Gary Anderson, at a World Matchplay Darts event held in Blackpool’s Winter Gardens.

John Murphy, publican at The Ash Tree, said: “I thoroughly enjoy playing in Punch’s Darts Classic event, it is a great competition and lots of fun for everyone who takes part. Last year was the second time we won (and the second time I then beat Gary in our prize event!) so I can’t wait to see the outcome of this year’s competition.”

John Healy, Commercial Director at Punch, added: “Our annual darts competition is also a big hit with our Publicans and customers alike. It’s a great opportunity for Publicans to drive footfall while organising an event that puts them at the heart of the local community. It’s the biggest competition of its kind in the world and we’re looking forward to seeing who wins this year!”
