IRELAND’S STEVE LENNON is out of this year’s PDC World Darts Championship after losing at Alexandra Palace today.

The 25-year-old, who defeated Australia’s James Bailey 3-0 in the first round, faced Alan Norris of England this afternoon.

In a thrilling encounter, Lennon claimed the opening set before Norris came back to win the second.

The Irishman edged ahead by taking the third, but, again, his opponent levelled things up.

The fifth and final set was locked at 5-5 when Norris prevailed in the final-leg decider with an 81 checkout.

Norris will now face Ryan Joyce, who knocked out Australia’s Simon Whitlock, in the third round. 

In the other results this afternoon, Luke Humphries beat Stephen Bunting 3-2, while Chris Dobey overcame Steve Beaton 3-0.
