Keane Barry admits his Qualifying School disappointment was “tough to take” but insists he will learn from the experience.
Barry was beaten by Scott Waites in a play-off for a Tour Card on the final day of Qualifying School.
The 17-year-old, however, bounced back by winning the JDC Super 16 title in Milton Keynes to add to his BDO and JDC world titles.
Barry will continue to compete on the JDC circuit in 2020 as well as the Development Tour and Challenge Tour.
The Irish ace has established himself as one of darts’ brightest young prospects and made his World Championship debut in December.
On his Q School experience, he admitted: “I fell at the last hurdle, which was tough to take, but it’s all experience to take on board.”
“Next year I’ll know what it’s all about.
“I still have a lot of things to look forward to and it’s all going in a good way.”
Barry defeated 13-year-old Luke Littler 5-3 in the Super 16 final with a 95 average on The Masters stage in Milton Keynes.
