DANCING Dimitri van den Bergh was in dreamland last night as he lifted the Betfred World Matchplay on his debut.
The Belgian got his hands on the Phil Taylor Trophy – his first PDC TV major – as he smashed Gary Anderson 18-10 in the final.
Antwerp’s Van den Bergh, 26, banked £150,000 for his efforts in the rearranged event in Milton Keynes.
The Dreammaker, who celebrated with his routine oche dance, said: “My dreams have come true.
“What a beautiful trophy I have in my hands. Phil Taylor, I saw him play so many tournaments.
“I am also a massive fan of Gary Anderson.
“Now I have won against a player like that to pick up a trophy named after a darts great.
“Well I’m making my dreams come true.
“We have gone through a difficult time recently and it’s great this tournament has happened.”
It was a poor, low-scoring match with only four 180s and Scot Anderson, 49, said: “Dimi played well. I wasn’t even close to the game.
“I was lucky I got a few legs off him.
“He has played well the whole tournament and deserved this.”
