Luke Littler is one of the most exciting prospects in world darts right now, and the 14-year-old served another reminder of his prodigious talent by landing a spectacular nine-darter in the MVG Masters in Gibraltar on Thursday.
‘The Nuke’ has been in magnificent form over recent weeks; leading England to victory in the Junior World Cup alongside Leighton Bennett, Henry Coates and Jacob Hibbert, and he defeated his team-mate Coates to triumph in the JDC International Darts Open on Wednesday.
Less than 24 hours later, Littler achieved perfection to prevail in his quarter-final clash against Tinus van Tiel in the MVG Masters, following up visits of 174 and 177 with a sublime 150 checkout, pinning successive treble 19s and nailing double 18 to cap off another magical moment.
Littler went to lift his second individual title of the week, closing out a 6-4 victory over Bennett with an impressive 95.86 average, and he’ll be bidding to clinch his fourth title in as many days at the JDC Junior World Darts Championship on Friday, which brings a close to proceedings in Gibraltar.
The 14-year-old also created history less than a fortnight ago, coming through a field of 472 players to prevail at the Irish Open and become the youngest winner of a senior BDO/WDF event, which ensures he will feature in the upcoming WDF World Championship at Lakeside. What a talent!
