sadly it has just been announced that BDO stalwart Olly Croft has passed away at the age of 90
most of us older folk will know how instrumental he was in getting darts to a higher level
and quite a few PDC players have him to thank for that
R.I.P to a true darts pioneer

He was removed from the BDO board in August 2011, so no connection between his death and the near end of the organization he has founded.

Very sad indeed, RIP

Another one of the main faces of the darts boom in the 70s and 80s gone - seems that the only main ones left are Tony Green & John Lowe.
He would not've liked the state the BDO became in his final few years...

Anyway, R.I.P Olly Croft - and I can (maybe) see the BDO World Championship trophy renamed the Olly Croft Trophy.

Just logged back on the pc to see this sad news - yes he was one of the prime reasons for the split, but without Olly darts wouldn't be where it is today. Andy Fordham actually went to visit him on his 90th birthday a few days ago as well.

RIP Olly, and thank you for all you did for the game of darts Sad

Didnt Olly still have some influence on how the BDO was run after 2011?.
