WATCH the moment Chris Dobey walked on to Local Hero at the Premier League darts in Newcastle


Bot

This is the spine-tingling moment local darts ace Chris Dobey walked out at the Utilita Arena to Newcastle United anthem Local Hero.

A Magpies fan, for years Dobey has been on the terraces watching his boyhood football club walk out on to the St James' Park turf to the guitar-riffs of Mark Knopfler.

And on Thursday night, he got to experience that himself at the Premier League darts in Newcastle, as he was given a rapturous ovation by his home support ahead of his 6-6 draw with Austria's Mensur Suljovic.

"It was a dream come true to play in front of that crowd tonight, I felt like Alan Shearer at one point!" Dobey told PDC.TV after the game.

"If it wasn't for the fans spurring me on I could've easily thrown that one away and it was a great feeling to get the draw in the end."

Dobey was handed the opportunity as one of nine wildcards who replaced injured two-time world champion Gary Anderson.
