Wayne Warren has stated that he will keep the BDO World Championship trophy as the organisation’s commercial arm who organise the major tournaments heads towards liquidation this Thursday.

Warren was only paid £23,000 for winning the BDO World Championship instead of the usual £100,000; he said recently that current chairman Des Jacklin should be taken to court after previously calling his win ‘a nightmare not a dream’.

In a debate about what happens to the trophies now; Warren has no intention of giving his back: “Until I get what’s owed to me. That trophy won’t be going nowhere I can assure you of that,” he wrote on Facebook.

The Welshman received support from among others, the wife of John O’Shea; who won the World Masters last year: “John will be keeping the World Masters Trophy along with you,” she replied.
