Shame he didnt last out until mid-January, he could have seen his best mate bomb out at Lakeside one final time.

The guy held some serious grudges in darts (some I don’t blame him for, some I do) and was in the group of people from the past that had to walk away from the game to help the organisations come together but he did a hell of a lot for the players and for the pdc.

RIP

R.I.P Tommy
Done so much in the early days to put the pdc where it is today. You had to toe the line with tommy but a very fair man.
Will be sadly missed by everyone involve in the pdc & Darts in general.
God bless my friend

If it were not for Tommy and his founding of the PDC. Darts would be dead under the bdo. This forum and most of its fans would not be here

We would not be watching this grand slam, nor would have any of the comps like the PL european champs, matchplay, uk open, world series etc.

R.I.P Tommy. Sincere condolences to his family. Didn't know him personally, but as one of the original 10 volunteer markers for the PDC back in 2010, listened to him many times at the Markers briefing before every event, and always considered him to be a top man trying to do his very best to progress our game. Respect
