We’ve already introduced you to our first two experts, Phil ‘The Power’ Taylor and Anastasia Dobromyslova, so now it’s time to turn our attention to our final expert – Russ Bray.

Known as ‘The Voice’, Bray has become a household name as referee at the Ladbrokes.com World Darts Championship, with his gravel-voiced tones crying out the familiar ‘one hundred and eighty!’ and ‘game on!’

Regarded by many as the best referee in the world, Bray has called four televised nine-dart finishes in his illustrious career and is looking for a team to enter the Lads Cup who don’t take themselves too seriously.

He said: “I’m looking for the teams that look well up for a bit of fun.

“This is a once in a lifetime opportunity that’s usually reserved for the darts elite and definitely one to tell the grand kids.”
