“This year has gone really well for me, 2019 was good and I’m after starting off 2020 with a very good win.

“Leighton Bennett was unbelievable, he’s on this stage for a reason, he’s deserves everyone’s applause.

“I’m over the moon to win this. I’m aiming to reach the top, but you have to take every game as it comes and every year as it comes.

“I’m going to get my head down, I’ve Q School next week and we’ll see what that brings. I’m looking forward to the year ahead.”

Barry will attempt to win his PDC tour card over the next few weeks as he looks to continue an excellent start to 2020.
