Darts: Darryl Fitton goes ‘one step beyond’ to win Cheltenham Masters

World number 82 Darryl Fitton was the surprise winner of the 2018 Spectre Cheltenham Masters at the Centaur Arena on Saturday night.

‘The Dazzler’ beat Gerwyn Price 4-1 in the final to come out on top amongst a star-studded line-up, which included world number one Michael van Gerwen.

Finalist Price managed the highest average of the night, but was ousted by the impressive Fitton, who also beat Mark Webster on his way to victory.

 

Fitton, who comes onto the stage dancing to the Madness song “One Step Beyond”, moved to the PDC this year after 16 years in the BDO.

Popular Dutchman Raymond van Barneveld, Australian Simon Whitock and Andy Jenkins were also in action in front of a rowdy crowd at Cheltenham Racecourse.
