THE NEWEST big star of the PDC, Aspinall began his journey playing in PDC Development and Challenge Tour events in 2012.

The Stockport man won a two-year PDC Tour Card in 2015 through the Q School Order of Merit, but by January 2018 found himself back at Qualifying School where he won back his Tour Card.

A life-changing six months for Aspinall began in September 2018 as he won his first ranking PDC ranking title at a Players Championship event, defeating Ryan Searle 6–4 in the final in Barnsley.

That win helped him secure his Alexandra Palace debut at the 2018/19 World Championship, where 500/1 outsider Aspinall defeated world number six Gerwyn Price, Kyle Anderson, Devon Petersen and Brendan Dolan in his incredible run to the semi-finals, where he was defeated 6-3 by Michael Smith.

Aspinall pocketed a £100,000 prize for the second time in three months as he sensationally claimed his first televised title at the 2019 UK Open in March 2019.

Ranked 34th on the PDC Order of Merit before the tournament, Aspinall took the UK Open by storm with a series of sensational performances, capped off with a 170 finish to win the final against Rob Cross 11-5.

Aspinall sensationally doubled his TV title tally just four months later at the US Darts Masters in Las Vegas, defeating Michael Smith 8-4 in the final.
