Falkirk district darts player Alan Norris will face Stephen Bunting in the BDO World Darts final at the Lakeside tonight.

Norris defeated Holland’s Jan Dekker in a thrilling semi-final when the Dutchman missed four darts for double-six and Norris checked out on 30.

And afterwards Norris, nicknamed ‘Chuck’ joked with the BBC that the raucous atmosphere “was like playing an exhibition in Bo’ness town hall.

“It was awesome.”

Norris (41) has been based in Bo’ness for four years and has featured at the Lakeside annual event in each of those years. Despite knocking out the favourite Scott Waites en route to the final, it is Liverpudlian and world number one Bunting who is the bookies’ favourite.

The final is on BBC2 tonight.
