New Tour Card holder Slevin hopes for similar rise to Josh Rock: "Hopefully this year I can do what he's doing and replicate it"

Dylan Slevin sealed his Tour Card at Q-School with a superb few days for the Irishman. The 20-year-old will make his debut on the 'Pro Tour' with a new nickname also announced as 'Oceans' a play on the film Oceans Eleven.

Speaking to the Weekly Dartscast, he spoke about his delight of getting a Tour Card and his darting beginnings.

"It hasn't really sunk in yet. I'm sure it will in the next couple of days, the phone is absolutely buzzing here since I lost in the Quarter-Final. It's non-stop buzz," said Slevin to Weekly Dartscast.

"I started throwing darts at a young age. When I was knee high, I was up throwing darts on a chair. My dad used to throw darts for county and when I got old enough, I got down off the chair and started throwing and fell in love."

Development Tour

Starting to play on the Development Tour last year, he reached a Quarter-Final and Semi-Final meeting Josh Rock in the latter who he hopes to emulate.

"For my first year, I was very surprised with the form that I brought to the Development Tour. Finishing in the top 20, I wasn't expecting a high finish. To get to a semi-final and get beaten by Josh Rock, look at what he's doing in the sport. Hopefully this year I can do what he's doing and replicate it."

MODUS Super Series

Also a new experience was the MODUS Super Series, all of which will stand him in good stead for the tour.

"The Thursday, Friday and Saturday final, when I got the invitation I was fairly shocked. I thought I'll go in and throw my darts and luckily they went in for me and got to the semi-final on my debut."
