Maybole darts star Jim McEwan was millimetres from making history last week.

After putting his PDC Q-School heartbreak behind him, 'Chucky' was back at the board as he took part in finals night of the MODUS Super Series event.

McEwan went into the event as the reigning champion, having emerged victorious in season five of the invitational event.

The event is played over 12 weeks, with players vying to qualify for the showpiece finals night.

McEwan once again battled his way into the latter stages of the tournament, reaching the semi-final before eventually losing out to Mareno Michels - who lost in the final to Wayne Jones.

En route to the final, McEwan ended the group stage of finals night with an outstanding 101.3 average to defeat Mark Dudbridge.

The match also saw Chucky nearly produce the first-ever nine-dart finish in the history of the Super Series finals night.

McEwan started off the match's fourth leg with two 180s, and made it eight perfect darts when he pinned the required treble 20 and treble 19 for a 141 finish.

However, his effort at double twelve landed on the wrong side of the wire by only millimetres as he missed out on perfection.

The Maybole darts star then came back to the board and took out the remaining 24 in two darts before going on to win the match 4-3.
