It's not often you have lunch with a world champion sportsman, but that was the case at the Proact today as darts legend John Lowe spoke at the latest Senior Spireites lunch.
After speaking to the large group of guests about his unexpected start in the game, his breakthrough nine-dart finish in 1984 and his rivalry with Eric Bristow, Old Stone Face spoke to PlayerHD about his afternoon.
He commented: "I think I joined in very well, I even wore a blue suit today! I think I am now classified as a Senior Spireite myself, I've had a very good afternoon and I think I know where I belong now."
Born in New Tupton and still living in the local area, Lowe spoke about his home town, the Spireites and his friendship with manager Danny Wilson.
"Chesterfield's a great place, it's a great town," he said. "We've got everything going for us, we've got a great football club and a lovely stadium with growing support - and we should be proud of that.
"I have been here to games quite a bit, I've shared a few things with the last couple of managers and I know Danny Wilson very well, he's a good friend.
"Danny is in the elite of management, he's right for Chesterfield and he's not got far to go home, has he? If he sorts his team out and gets who he wants who knows what can happen?"
