Jason hits bullseye

Remember Jason Cullen, the talented darts player from Ballymurn who reached the last 16 at the BDO world championships five years ago?

Well, his appetite for the game hasn't waned in the intervening years, and he made a significant breakthrough when he won his first-ever PDC title recently.

Cullen defeated Cameron Menzies 5-4 in the final of the fourth Challenge Tour event of 2018.

The 29-year-old was successful at the event in Wigan, and the victory helped him to rise up the money list.

He became the first Irishman to triumph at this level, and if he keeps up this level of form he could be in for a shout of competing on the lucrative PDC pro tour circuit.
