9 Dart Luke Goes Fourth

Red Dragon Darts

LUKE Littler was victorious on Sunday, in winning his fourth PDC Development Tour title of the year.

The Nuke defeated Gian Van Veen in the decider, as the fourth weekend of the PDC’s Youth Tour season ended in Leicester’s Morningside Arena.

Littler, who was victorious at Saturday’s Event 18, went all the way once again, with the teenage sensation dropping just seven legs on route to the Quarter Finals firstly, as he recorded victories against Almos Kovacs, Ciaran Forde, Adam Gawlas, Lewis Williams and Rune Van Damme.

The contest against Van Damme saw the 16-year-old produce a perfect nine dart leg in the opening leg of the tie against the Belgian.

Littler then went on and produced back-to-back 5-2 victories against Owen Bates and Jamai Van den Herik respectively to set up a clash with Van Veen in the decider.

The final began with the Dutchman racing into a 3-0 lead, with winning legs coming in a total of 50 darts, before Littler ended the run in Leg Four with an 18-dart hold of throw to cut the gap to just two legs.

Van Veen moved within one of victory in the following leg, leaving Littler needing to win four on the spin to keep his title hopes alive.

Incredibly, The Englishman did so, by rattling off four successive legs and only allowing his opponent a minimal two match darts along the way, as he sealed the victory with a 16-dart break of throw in a last leg decider to pick up a fourth Development Tour success of the year.

The PDC Winmau Development Tour returns between 18-19th August with Events 21-24 taking place from the Marshall Arena, Milton Keynes.

All live scores and results will be viewed via tv.dartconnect.com.
