FIVE-TIMES world darts champion Raymond van Barneveld stopped off at the CAFE Project on Friday evening to pass on his tips to youngsters.

The dutchman, also known as Barney was in Arbroath for an exhibition match at the Community Centre.

But he stopped off at the CAFE project, which houses the Angus Darts Academy to chat to the children and sign autographs.

The event was organised by Angus county player and Scottish international Alan Soutar, who has also played in the BDO World Professional Darts Championships.

Make sure you pick up Friday’s paper for more pictures of local youngsters with Barney.
