Bushmills darts player Freddie McMullan has paid an emotional tribute following the death of legend of the oche Eric Bristow.

Freddie McMullan revealed that the Crafty Cockney Eric Bristow used to help him keep score during their battles. Freddie also said his “friend and rival”, who died of a heart attack last Thursday at the age of 60, had a fondness for the famous whiskey from his home village.

The 67-year-old played the five-times world champion regularly in individual and international competitions.

He described the Englishman, who helped transform darts from a pub game to a high-profile sport, as a legend.

“He was one of a kind,” said Freddie, who was watching TV coverage of the latest round of the Professional Darts Corporation’s (PDC) Premier League in Liverpool when it was announced that Bristow had collapsed and died at the event.

Eric John Bristow, MBE was an English professional darts player. He was ranked World No. 1 by the World Darts Federation a record six times, in 1980 and 81, 1983 to 1985, and in 1990.
