Beau is re-writing the darts record books just two years after taking up the sport. Her remarkable 2016 has already had people suggesting she could be the sport’s first female superstar.
The 12-year-old, nicknamed Beau ‘n’ Arrow, has enjoyed a sensational year, winning the England Classic, The England Matchplay, the Yorkshire Classic, The Welsh Open and, in August, the European Cup.
In the latter she beat off competition from 17 other countries to confirm her status as the sport’s outstanding young talent. That European Cup victory capped off a truly remarkable rise for a schoolgirl who is already widely-recognised on the oche wherever she goes.
She took up the sport after being encouraged by her brother, who recognised an extraordinary talent in the making.
A regular on the Yorkshire pub circuit since the age of 10, Beau walks to the stage to the old Bros classic When Will I Be Famous. She won the Doncaster and District Men’s under-30 league last year and, this summer, shared the oche with world number one, Michael Van Gerwen.
