Beeney on World Championship goal after maiden PDC semi-final: "It's not a dream, it's happening"

Aaron Beeney continues to show improvement in his second year on the PDC ProTour and this led to the prison officer reaching his maiden semi-final during the last Super Series.

Beeney spoke before he came home from Niedernhausen to the Weekly Dartscast and the belief and confidence is there that he is no longer an easy touch.

"I'm feeling unreal. Two disappointing 6-0 losses which is something I didn't suffer last year, although I weren't getting a win. I was never losing 6-0. Everything else has gone pretty well hasn't it," said Beeney to Weekly Dartscast.

"I've been saying it for a while, my finishing is as good as anyone in that room. Don't know if it's got something to do with my day job in the prison but I'm very calm in them situations. It's my scoring that lets me down. I am hard to beat, I'm proving that over and over again."

Defeating former World Champions en route

In his run, he took out Rob Cross and Raymond van Barneveld and he discussed the latter and how it was a free roll in reality.

"I walked to the board in an I can't lose situation. If I lose, I've lost to a five time World Champion, legend Raymond van Barneveld. I've already gone deeper in a tournament than anyone expected me to."

In terms of what he'd take away as a whole from the weekend in Germany and year two as a whole so far is that players will have to work hard to beat him.

"The fact that I'm dangerous and hard to beat. I didn't walk away with any monster averages, although the scoreline was pretty good against Raymond van Barneveld, it wasn't like I absolutely dominated. It was just stealing my chances. I think the thing coming away from it is now no one's going to take me lightly anymore."

World Championship goal

He currently sits inside the ProTour Order of Merit spots for the World Championship and he is confident and determined to have his walk-on at the Alexandra Palace come December.

"It's not a dream, it's happening. I'll be there, I'm determined. I've got a lot to play for this year and at the moment, I'm doing it."

"I'm consistently winning games now, I will be at the World's and it will be a coin flip if I win enough to keep my card or not."
