Aaron Beeney secured a Tour Card on the third day at 2020 PDC UK Q-School with a brilliant victory over Jarred Cole which saw him achieve his darting dreams.

Beeney, a 36-year old prison officer who only won just £150 in prize money; hit a brilliant 87 checkout on the bullseye to claim the victory.

He spoke afterwards and was overcome with emotion about what he had just achieved; in what was a shock triumph in Wigan.

“I’ve lit just competed the greatest thing that I ever expected to happen in my life,” said an emotional Beeney.

“I’ve had the worst time ever here, I was nervous on Thursday and went out in the first round in the worst game I’ve ever played.

“I played even worse on Friday and now I’ve played really well all day today.

“I have no words, I have no idea how I’ve done this at all. To hit a bullseye to earn a Tour Card is the stuff dreams are made of.

“I’m still a pub player, I’ve only played for my county three times so this is unreal.”
