Ceri Morgan (born 22 December 1947 in Treorchy, Glamorgan, Wales) is a retired darts player.

Darts career[edit]

He made his World Championship debut in 1979, beating Barry Atkinson in the first round before losing to Tony Brown in the second round. In 1980, Morgan reached the quarter final, where, as the number 8 seed, he began his campaign in the second round where he defeated Alan Grant before losing to Cliff Lazarenko. He repeated his best ever performances at the World Championships in 1981 and 1984 by reaching the quarter-finals. He lost to John Lowe on both occasions.

His last appearance at the World Championships came in 1987 with a first round defeat by Jocky Wilson.

One of his biggest pay days came in 1980, when he won the Austin Morris British Masters against Bobby George, the top prize being a £5,500 car from the tournament sponsors. As Morgan did not drive, the sponsors made the offer of a cash option instead.

Morgan hit the highest shot out of the 1983 Unipart British Professional Championships v Steve Brennan with a 170 and in 1986 reached the semi-finals of the same tournament. He was runner-up to Nicky Virachkul in the 1979 World Cup Singles and reached the semi-finals of the World Masters in 1982.
