Tai Woffinden realised a dream by winning his first-ever British title on home shale.

Wolverhampton star Woffinden romped to a 15-point maximum in the hugely successful British Final at Monmore Green.

He then made no mistake in the Grand Final by edging out reigning champion Scott Nicholls, Chris Harris and Craig Cook.

Edward Kennett and Danny King had missed out in the semi-final.

Determination

"I'm speechless. I wanted that for a few years now. I've been close, but not made it. I'm just so excited," Woffinden told Sky Sports.

"This means so much to me. I said before the meeting I wanted the title so badly, I won the Under 18, I won the Under 21 and now I've won the British title itself.

"I just want to thank everyone who has helped me achieve this, my sponsors, the Wolves fans and management, everyone, and I want to dedicate this title to Lee Richardson and my father. That's really all I can say."
