All in, one in – that’s the Riley family’s motto.

Devonport’s Shey-Anne, 21, John, 23, Michael, 18, and Paul Riley, 22, spend most of their time together mastering the dart board.

The siblings all took part in this month’s national championships at Westbury following weeks of training.

“I’m 21 and I have been playing since I was seven and that’s when we started all playing together,” Shey-Anne said.

“My dad Ken Riley started us from such a young age just practising in the lounge room and then we started playing in competitions, that’s how we made it to under-25s.”

Shey-Anne said she most enjoys the fact she can spend time with her three brothers playing a sport that they all love.

“We have some tough moments,” she joked.

“The competition is what makes it most enjoyable and because we have been training together for some time we help each other out all the time – what to play and what to aim for.

“It’s fun when you get to play against your family… it is always good to have someone to go away with that you know.

“It’s not everyday you have all four siblings playing together.”
