Cardigan darts hero Jamie Lewis turned in two stunning performances at the Professional Darts Corporation World Series Finals in Vienna at the weekend before bowing out at the quarter-final stage.

The local star, who now lives in Carmarthen, is still waiting to win a tournament after joining the PDC in 2012, but this year reached the World Championship semi-final where he became the last player to lose against the legendary Phil Taylor who has retired.

Lewis, who celebrates his 27th birthday this Thursday, stole the show on the opening day of the World Series as he defeated Dimitri Van den Bergh of Belgium 6-2 and had an astonishing average of 109.8.

After roaring to a great victory the Cardigan darter raised his hands in memory of his grandfather John (Hardware Stores) Evans who died the previous week.

Speaking after the game he said: "It's been a really hard week but I knew I was going to come out here to do well for him.

"In my head I was thinking 'I don't want to let him down' and thankfully performed well for him tonight, so I'm chuffed with that."

In the second round the west Wales ace threw tremendous darts in the final two legs to spring a 6-5 win over 28-year-old reigning world champions Rob Cross of Hastings.

Unfortunately he could not repeat his previous efforts against 35-year-old European Champion and world-rated number six James Wade of Aldershot who sprang a 10-5 win.
