James had made some heavy weather of the last few legs as The Recently crowned Dutch Open Champion Ross The Boss smashed his way right back into the match with some superb pressure darts, but it was James Wilson who collapsed to the floor in elation when his winning double went in, but he had enough left in the tank to get up and punch his fists in triumph before the packed crowds.
James said: ”To win this, the first ever World Trophy, you would not believe what this means to me as I came here this weekend having had a few up and down games, but I continued to fight back and, now to be The Champion, feels absolutely amazing.”
