The form of Narberth darts player Mikey Rees has been rewarded by national selection.

The 21-year-old from Robeston Wathen has been named in the 14 man squad after his continued good form for the RAOB in the Narberth League. He has also represented Pembrokeshire and for the past four years, has qualified for the finals of the Worthington’s Darts Champion of Champions event, made up of the best players from around the country.

He finished 2018 sixth in the Welsh county averages, ninth in the overall Welsh county rankings and currently tops the Narberth League stats - having won numerous local titles. He also once toppled Terry ‘The Bull’ Jenkins in an exhibition match and has a 10 dart leg to his name.

“I can’t say I expected the call up but I was hopeful,” he told Telegraph Sport.

“And I’m looking forward to getting going now.”

The former Sir Thomas Picton School pupil has played for 10 years and practices for at least an hour each day, and has now vowed to up his time on the board.

“I want to aim for the top and things like the BDO or even PDC circuit one day,” he admitted.

“So I will start practicing more and more now.”

Steve Alker has also been names, who despite being based in Llanelli, also represents Pembrokeshire in county competitions.
