Yorkshire Darts on TV
Back in the early to mid 80's I can remember watching Yorkshire Darts (No trebles, no outer bull) being played on TV, although I wasn't all that old at the time. It wasn't a repeat of 'The Indoor League' as it used the split screen, and I'm pretty sure that it was on 'Grandstand', and may have been a filler for something that had been rained off.
Anyone know what this might have been?

May have been a regional thing? Or could have been a one off?

Wouldn't have been regional as I was in London, although might have been originally just local then used for fill for something else.

May have been World of Sport and not Grandstand I guess. ITV did include Yorkshire darts in the first couple of years of 'The Indoor League' before they switched to a standard board and got name players in. 'The Indoor League' of course the brainchild of Sid Waddell.

Yep, Winmau do a selection of specialist boards the Lincoln board is the same as the Yorkshire but all black. Personally I'm hoping to get a London Five's board. Being from the sauf like.
Fred Trueman would always say "It's a Yorkshire board, no trebles no flukey shots just skill."

The title is a play on The Adverts song but the song isn't.
