Chris Dobey played his first game in the PDC Premier League on Thursday as part of the nine man contenders line up in front of his home crowd in Newcastle.

‘Hollywood’ spoke afterwards calling it a dream come true; as well as that he even felt like Alan Shearer during the match due to the levels of support.

“It was a dream come true to play in front of that crowd tonight, I felt like Alan Shearer at one point!” said Dobey.

“If it wasn’t for the fans spurring me on I could’ve easily thrown that one away; it was a great feeling to get the draw in the end.

“This was an amazing opportunity;  now I want more of this, which means putting the hard work in on the ProTour and hopefully more chances will come for me in the future.”
