Phil Nixon R.I.P.

(Taken from Live Darts on Facebook)

A sad day in the world of darts as Phil Nixon loses his battle with cancer at the age of 57.

The Ferryhill Flyer's finest hour came in the 2007 Lakeside world final, where he battled back from 6-0 down in sets to level up at 6-6 with Martin Adams.

A former World Masters quarter-finalist and British Open semi-finalist, Nixon also appeared in the Grand Slam in 2007 and 2008.

A true gentleman on and off the oche - RIP Nixy
