Peter Wright has been a true darting success story which culminated in his World Championship triumph on New Years Day.

It hasn’t always been that way though for Wright who used to among other things be a tyre fitter and as part of Moneybarn’s Life Before Darts feature, he discussed the hardest parts of the job.

“Before the darts, I was a tyre fitter. The old job kept you physically fit; the toughest thing was when you’re going in winter time and to warm your hands up, you put your hands in the dip tank, we used to put the tyres in to see if they’ve got punctures,” said Wright.

On the tough aspects of life before darts, he spoke about working long hours and not having the financial freedom: “Obviously working hard and paying your bills and having nothing left at the end of the month.”
