Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Eric Bristow MBE ("The Crafty Cockney") (born 25 April 1957 in Hackney, London) is a British darts player, whose skill at the game in the 1980s helped turn it into a worldwide spectator sport. Bristow won his first world championship in 1980, defeating fellow Londoner Bobby George, and so began a decade's worth of domination, in which he would retain his title in 1981 and win it again in 1984, 1985 and 1986. Like his snooker contemporary Steve Davis, however, he had to cope also with a shock defeat during this period, when young unknown Keith Deller beat him in the 1983 final, not to mention Steve Brennan in the previous year's 1st Round. He finished as runner-up on four other occasions up to 1991.show more
