Nathan Aspinall heads to Wolverhampton in confident mood after reaching last month’s World Grand Prix final, as the Stockport star looks to end a three-year wait for a PDC televised title.
“2019 was a long, long time ago now! I need to get my name on a trophy again and hopefully that will happen in Wolverhampton,” claimed the former UK Open champion.
The polular Bolton thrower has suffered with a wrist injury but seems to be heading back to his fluent best:
“My management team and my family – we know a big win is around the corner. I can feel it. I know what I’m doing in practice, I know what I’m doing in tournaments, and I do believe it’s coming.
“It’s going to be tough but I’m looking forward to it, the confidence is high and I really think I can do some damage.”
The 16th staging of the Grand Slam will see a star-studded 32-player field competing for a record-breaking £650,000 in prize money and the coveted Eric Bristow Trophy from November 12-20.
With the players split into eight groups of four for the first round stage, the round-robin action begins with a bumper double session on Saturday November 12.
