Les 'McDanger' Wallace
I read this guy quit darts in 1999 with a host of personal problems but that he won a PDC tour card last year.

Anyone heard how's he's getting on?

"Wallace's private life was a major contributor to his withdrawal from the full-time darts circuit. At one of his court cases, his solicitor Charles Thomas told the court that Wallace's life dramatically changed in 1999 when his partner, Carol, lost premature twins who were four days old.[3] That led to the collapse of the relationship and his alcohol consumption became greater.[4]

He effectively withdrew from the full-time circuit in 1999, although he still participated in some BDO tournaments - including the World Masters in 2000 and 2003 - losing his first match on both occasions. His only televised appearance since came in an exhibition match before the World Darts Trophy final in 2006 - when he played in a Legends match against Bobby George.

He has made some attempts to revive his career in recent years and won the Hampshire Open in 2004.[5] In the 2010 Hampshire Open he won three early round matches, but was eliminated at the last 64 stage. As a former BDO World Championship winner, he received an invitation to compete in the preliminary round of the 2010 competition, but was beaten in his first match.[6]

In addition, he attended the PDC Qualifying School event in January 2012. He gained a 2 year PDC tour card after finishing 23rd in the Q School Order Of Merit."

Sad to hear about as he proved he was in his hey day a superb darter

My thoughts on many whom play at the top and also to some very good amateur players whom stop playing

for some reason or other for a few years then try and make a come back is majority of players

just come back but are not as good as before ..Sad to hear about Les Wallace and all the best to the guy
in future be it in darts or not ..

I'm glad to hear he is still playing, someone with his experience has a lot to offer the game and I think this thread proves that fans are still interested in the man. I wish him all the best and hope he still enjoys the game.

Its a real shame but sometimes we are all guilty of forgetting that these are just normal guys with every day problems
