Durrant on potential career path if Q-School dream failed against Dennant: 'I definitely wouldn't have gone back to Q School'

Glen Durrant is currently leading the Premier League and is one of the biggest stars in the PDC but when he attempted to switch from the BDO, a big hurdle approached and that was Q-School.

Durrant had huge pressure on him to succeed and a pivotal game against Matthew Dennant could have crushed his dream. He has now revealed to the Golden Arrows Podcast that he wouldn't have gone back to Q-School if his dream failed.

"It must have been 300 or 400 behind my board. I saw it this year when Fallon Sherrock played Paul Nicholson and it just sort of reminded me of that was me the year before. I got to the final against Reece Robinson, that was the nightmare draw and I had everyone in my section of the draw," said Durrant.

"Reece gave me a really good beating and I knew then I had to win three games the next day. Now I believe the PDC were desperate for me to get through and I remember someone coming to me and saying your first round guy you can't lose to because he's been averaging 47 in all the first couple of days. I think the second game was routine."

"Then obviously I've spoke about it so many times a game with Matty Dennant which would determine I guess the final 5 to 6 to 7 years of my darting life. Am I going to stay in the BDO or am I going to give the PDC a go?"

"He has two darts averaging 107 at double 16, he misses, I checkout an 86 and then I win the match 5-4."

"I definitely wouldn't have gone back to Q School. I would only have gone the once and to see the deterioration of the BDO when I left I just couldn't believe my luck."
