Richard Hosey claimed the most recent Vault Knockout at Erdington’s Red Lion in September. The Vault series offers affiliated events the prize of a MODUS Super Series appearnce and a possible £25,000 in prize money.

Hosey, now ranked 7th, is a prolific local open and league player, who often enjoys considerable success in and around the Black Country and West Midlands.

The 40-year-old overcame current Midland vault leader Paul Redfern in the final match up. Hosey’s 3-0 win came with a 92 average and a superb opening 9 dart average of more than 112.

The winner dropped only 1 leg in the three games from the Qtr finals to victory, defeating Anthony Webster and Gareth Johnson en route.
