HEREFORDSHIRE darts star Jim Williams was made to work for his PDC World Darts Championship first round victory against Sebastian Bialecki.

The Shobdon darts star lost the opening leg against his 19-year-old opponent and despite fighting back also found himself 2-1 down before coming fighting back to win 3-2.

“I’m obviously delighted with the win but I was really nervous, that was a tough one to get through that,” said Williams.

“I really struggled with nerves today, normally I’m pretty good with that, everything I found was difficult.

“My first start was just low so many times and it’s difficult then because you are blocking your target, it was a tough one.”

Williams is near the end of his first full year on the PDC Tour and won the Players Championship 6 title in Barnsley In March.

His win at the world championship lifted him into the top 64 places in the world.

“I’ve been inconsistent,” added Williams.

“I don’t put nowhere as much time in as this level deserves to be honest. I’ve managed to pinch a few quid here and there so it’s alright.

“I’ve started a new business which has taken a lot of my time, I’ve got a young family so priorities for me at the moment aren’t darts. I need to make it that really.”

Williams has a tough second round draw being drawn against eighth seed James Wade.

Williams added: “He’s good isn’t he?”

“I always feel comfortable playing James so hopefully I can relax a bit and just try and play, even my B game just to give him a game. I struggled today.”
