PDC darts star Tony takes Open title

BILLINGSHURST darts ace Tony Ayres bagged the Easter Open title at Crawley Labour Club last week.

Tony, a previous winner, picked up a winner’s cheque of £250 by beating fellow PDC star Ken McNeil, from Alberta Canada, by 3-2 in the final.

Both finalists had featured in the PDC World Championships in the past two years, and they served up an exciting final.

Tony took the first and third legs but was matched by Ken taking legs two and four. The decider brought the crowd to their feet when Tony wired the double going when going for a nine dart 501. Both players struggled to clinch the match but Tony finally checked out on double one to take the first prize.
