Downham’s darts players were given the chance to test their skills against two of the game’s greats during an exhibition at a town pub.

On Friday night, the Swan Hotel, on High Street, was packed with fans both keen to see former five time world champion Eric Bristow and three time winner John Lowe and take them on at the oche.

Landlord Brendan Morgan said he had to turn people away because of the level of interest in the pair, whom he has known for many years.

He said: “It was absolutely fantastic. The guys are brillant. John never lost a game all night.”

The venue is no stranger to welcoming big names from the world of sport after snooker legend Jimmy White played an exhibition there earlier this year.

Mr Morgan also plans to bring more stars of snooker and darts to the pub during the course of next year.
