Harry Ward claimed a maiden PDC ranking title this past Sunday with victory over Max Hopp in Barnsley.
Ward who hails from Swadlincote in Derby spoke afterwards about the win and said that he rode his luck at times but that he is so happy to claim the win.
“This is unreal, I’m so, so happy to win this title,” said Ward.
“Max is a great player and it was a really tough final, and after I missed three darts for the match I began to doubt myself a bit.
“I rode my luck at times but that’s what you have to do sometimes and I’m really pleased that I made the most of it.
“I went to Q School without expecting to win a Tour Card so to achieve what I have done over the past few months is fantastic for me, and now I want to kick on further.”
