Harrington 'ecstatic' to defeat Noppert in Grand Slam of Darts debut
Ryan Harrington made his return to TV action on Saturday afternoon defeating Danny Noppert in a victory that he was ecstatic to claim.
Harrington added that for him, ahead of the tournament he's got nothing to lose and as a result he can go up there with confidence and can focus more as he took on the in-form Dutchman who last week reached his first TV final in the PDC .
"It was very nerve-wracking but I'm ecstatic to beat a player of Danny's quality and get the win," said the 29-year-old. "I think I pressured Danny at the right times and took my opportunity.
"I didn't think I'd hold my nerve but I gave myself the best chance and I'm over the moon. I've got nothing to lose so I can go up there with confidence and I'm just going to focus on my next opponent."
