Far north darts ace laid to rest as legends pay tribute
THE biggest names in world darts have paid tribute to a man who many claim to be the greatest darts player to have come from the north of Scotland.
Angus Ross, from Kinbrace, died suddenly on Sunday after a short battle against pancreatic cancer.
Legends of the game including Eric Bristow, Bobby George and John Gwynne all expressed their shock on Twitter about the death of the former Scottish champion who also qualified for the BDO World Darts Championship in 1981 and 1982.
His funeral took place at Helmsdale Church on Friday when by the request of his wife Marina, six of his former teammates carried his coffin out of the church.
