Three time World Champion, and current PDC Premier League member, Glen Durrant offered his support to those at Q School this week. He may even visit to support BDO runner up and close friend Jim Williams.
Fans and friends present at Robin Park in Wigan in the next few days may catch a word or two with Glen. He is sure it will be a more relaxed visit this time round!
In a conversation with JR Lott, for next months print edition of Darts World, Durrant recalled the intense scrutiny of last years event.
I’ll be there, probably on the first day, to cheer on Jim. There was a huge amount of scrutiny last year which made it a tough few daysGlen Durrant to Darts World
Williams also made his Q School bow last year and, although not successful he, gained valuable experience which may serve him well in this years event.
Reigning BDO champ Wayne Warren will be looking to emulate Glen’s success, both at Q School and within the PDC, the 57 year old Welshman will have considerable less playing capital after the BDO’s first prize was reduced to £23,000. The lowest prize since 1989 was greeted with general disappointment amongst darts fans.
With well over 500 entrants it will be as important to manage your performance over the day as it will to play world class darts!
Our contributor, former UK Open finalist, The Wizard will also be attempting to gain the highly valued Tour Card and hopefully we can tempt him to a few words over the coming days.
There will be much more from JR’s conversation with Duzza over the coming days. So stay tuned and don’t forget to get your subscription to the longest running darts magazine in the world here: https://www.dartsworld.com/subscribe
