15-Times world champion The Power beaten……by Rileys Mickey Mac!

Tuesday night (13th September) saw the second leg of the Phil Taylor roadshow at Rileys Colchester, and one Rileys regular will be dining out on tales of the evening for a long time to come.

Phil, the darts ambassador for Rileys, challenged 10 people to play a leg against him and, as expected, the 15-times world champion came out triumphant in each leg.  That was until Rileys regular Mickey Mac took to the Oche.

Mickey, who plays for Colchester Rileys superleague, managed to beat The Power in the one-leg competition.  Phil had 8 left with 2 darts but he missed.  Mickey had 74 required; first dart he hit 14, followed by a double top and with his final dart he hit double 10 to a resounding roar from the watching crowd.  Phil took it all in great humour, congratulating Mickey before going on to beat the rest of the challengers.

The event was part of the Phil Taylor Roadshow currently taking part at a number of Rileys clubs across the UK.

Maurice Kelly, CEO of Rileys said:  “It was a great evening, we were delighted with the huge number of people turning up to meet Phil, and a handful were lucky enough to get the chance to play against him.  Phil was his usual brilliant self and the crowd loved him. There was a great atmosphere, it was a real treat for our customers who also had the added bonus of Bobby George turning up! The management and staff at the club really enjoyed themselves too!”

After the darts Phil then did a Q&A session with questions from the crowd and then ended the evening signing autographs and having his photograph taken with the fans.

Further confirmed dates and venues for the Phil Taylor roadshow are: 21st September @ Rileys Edinburgh; 21st October @ Rileys Wolverhampton; 21st November @ Rileys Loughborough; 24th November @ Rileys Birkenhead.
