Meet our Players

Joe Murnan

“Shaggy’ as nicknamed by some of his friends whilst playing in the local dart league first picked up a set of darts at the age of 8.

Joe’s family all played darts and loved nothing more than to gather in front of the TV for the big tournaments, it was at this point that Bolton based Joe became inspired by the arrogance of the great Eric Bristow.

Joe didn’t wait too long before entering himself into some local tournaments and this experience only confirmed his love for the game.

After a short period playing within the BDO Joe made what has now become a life changing decision to move over to the PDC and test his skills amongst darts elite players.

In March 2014, Joe reached the last 32 of the UK Open being beaten 9–3 by Raymond van Barneveld. Later in the month he progressed to the last 16 of a PDC event for the first time as he beat the likes of Dean Winstanley and Dave Chisnall at the first Players Championship, before losing 6–4 to Andy Hamilton. He won through to the same stage of the third event where he was defeated 6–1 by Gary Anderson.

In February 2015 at the German Darts Championship, Joe beat Michael Barnard 6–5, Ian White 6–4 (averaged 99.72) and Brendan Dolan 6–4 to play in his first PDC quarter-final. He fell 4–0 down to world number one Michael van Gerwen, before closing to 4–3 with a 12 dart leg, but went on to lose 6–4.

In May 2015, at the 10th Players Championship in Crawley, Joe won his first PDC title and the £10,000 first prize. His run included 6–3 and 6–4 victories over Premier League players Stephen Bunting and Dave Chisnall in the quarter-finals and final, respectively. The win saw him qualify for the World Matchplay for the first time and he trailed Adrian Lewis 7–2 in the opening round. Joe won four successive legs, but went on to be beaten 10–7 on his televised debut.
