'That wouldn’t win a game in a the local pub' - William O'Connor not happy despite win at World Darts Championship
Ireland’s William O'Connor wasn't happy with his performance at the PDC World Championship last night, despite progressing with a straight sets win over Finalnd’s Marko Kantele at Alexandra Palace.
"That wouldn’t win a game in a the local pub," said O’Connor, after rounding off his 3-0 victory by winning with a bullseye.
However, O’Connor’s World Cup partner Steve Lennon was beaten 3-2 by Callan Rydz in the opening match. Lennon battled back well after trailing early on, but fell just short.
And it was also a disappointing night for 17-year-old Keane Barry, who fell to Dutchman Vincent van der Voort despite a strong effort on his tournament debut.

It was a great display on debut from Barry, who pushed Van der Voort all the way in the opening two sets.
