Steve Beaton Through In PDC World Championships First Round

Coventry Darter Steve Beaton beat South Africa’s Devon Petersen by three sets to one in the first round of the PDC World Championship.

“I was doing really well and then I switched off a bit so I was pleased to finish the job,” said Beaton to the PDC website.

“I’d love to have a run here like I did in Blackpool. I’ve never really had a good year at Ally Pally so I’d love to have one this year. The crowd really get behind me and to give them something back would be fantastic.”
