Dartsnews : You previously played on the Challenge Tour winning twice, what are your thoughts on the CT as a platform for players experienced and not to develop and would you say this was the catalyst for you to give Q-School a go??
Chris : The Challenge Tour was what started me off, it’s a very good standard, it makes you realise where you are, where you stand playing the game. It give you experience playing some of the top players and gives you confidence. I would say if you think your good enough, give Q-school a go and it will show you were you stand.
Dartsnews : You are sponsored by Target Darts and part of the Dunvegan Darts stable, how valuable is that for you and when will the readers be expecting the release of your darts??
Chris : Its brilliant there both great teams, to be able to say your with one of the best darts company’s around at the moment. It’s incredible. How often is it you can turn round and say your manager is Tommy Gilmour, Gary Anderson’s manager. There all brilliant, I couldn’t be more grateful.
Dartsnews : Finally what are your ambitions for the rest of the year and beyond??
Chris : My ambitions for the rest of this year, is just to knuckle down and keep plugging away, it would be nice to get into the world’s on your first year but we’ll see. Afterwards I’ll ideally like to make the Top 64 and see what happens after that, but I don’t want to rush into things, one step at a time. As for my darts, I’m not sure we’ll have to see what the future brings.
