Maltby Le Marsh darts star Sam Hewson is through to the second round of the BDO World Trophy 2015 after defeating two times champion Ted Hankey in Manchester last night, Thursday February 26.

The 21-year-old only secured his place in the competition earlier this week after the Scott Waites, ranked 13, pulled out.

But he took full advantage of his opportunity, beating Hankey, ranked two places below Hewson at 23, 6-4.

Stephen Holland, managing director of BDO events, said: “Sam is a great young player and climbing the BDO ranking tables.”
