Jamie Lewis shot to darting fame at the 2018 PDC World Championship with a brilliant run to the semi-finals but he hasn’t reached that level since.

Lewis missed the PDC World Championship for the first time this time around and despite the disappointment of it, he spoke to LiveDarts recently and admitted that he is raring to go ahead of the new season.

“I’m really looking forward to it. Of course I had the World’s off which was a first for me in the PDC, it was a bit different but in a weird way it was nice to have a break,” said Lewis to LiveDarts.

‘Fireball’ detailed the struggles of having this lapse in form admitting he was even close to quitting the sport halfway through the year.

“I started off the year bad, I had a lot of things going on bad behind darts which didn’t help. It got to midway through the year and I wanted to end then, I even though about not playing some of the events in the end but the year is gone now, a fresh start.”

For Lewis though it is all about not returning to Q-School and he wants to have a good year to dispel those doubts.

“I need a good year this year because I had a bad one last year and I don’t want to go back to Q-School so hopefully this year I can kick on again.”

“I know I can play well, if I start well hopefully I can keep it going for the rest of the year and just make sure I don’t have to go back to that dreaded Q-School.”
