WELSH ace Jonny joined the PDC circuit in 2015, winning a Tour Card at Qualifying School.

He went on to qualify for the UK Open and Grand Slam of Darts during his debut year on the circuit, and went on to appear in both the UK Open and Players Championship Finals during 2016.

He then made his debut at the World Championship at the 2017 event, overcoming fellow Welshman Gerwyn Price in round one before competing in a third successive UK Open, with his consistency on the ProTour helping establish his place inside the world's top 50.

A first ranking title came at a Players Championship in October 2017, as Clayton overcame James Wilson on a memorable day.

Clayton then jumped into the world's top 32 with a run to his first TV final at the Players Championship Finals, where he was eventually defeated by Michael van Gerwen.

Further appearances in the World Championship and UK Open followed before Clayton's progress continued with victory on the European Tour in April 2018 at the Austrian Darts Open as he overcame Gerwyn Price in an all-Welsh final.
