Ricky Evans is well on his way to being one of the PDC’s rising stars.
The 28-year-old was even named as such by Wayne Mardle in a recent Sky Sports piece. There’s no doubting that the Northamptonshire ace, nicknamed ‘Rapid’ for his quick-fire style, can make a speedy ascension up the PDC rankings. Evans explained in an interview with Josh’s Dartistry that he is aiming to make the step up in 2019.
“I know I’m capable of hitting big averages and top performances but then again I don’t mind winning with lower key stats- averages look good but I’d rather climb the rankings,” he explained.
“I admire Wayne (Mardle) as a person and pundit so to have him pick me out is huge. He knows his darts and I’ll be making sure I prove to him and all the other pundits or critics that I’m a world class darter.”
