Delight for Dudeney in Derby as he wins JDC UK Tour 3


Tavis Dudeney left Derby on Saturday afternoon in a jubilant mood as he was victorious at the Junior Darts Corporation’s UK Tour event 3. The 14-year old from Brighton enjoyed a 5-3 victory in the final over Freddie Francis en route to claiming the title.

With the win, Dudeney picked up £150, became a JDC – Allstar, and booked his place in the finals day in Bristol in December.

On his way to securing the title, Dudeney enjoy victories over Jack Ratcliffe (3-0), Will North 3-2, Ryan Jordan (3-1), Lewis Gurney (3-2), Keelan Kay (4-3) before that 5-3 victory in the final over Freddie Francis.

The strength in depth within the Junior Darts Corporation is very impressive, the standard of play is quite remarkable. Kyle Manton piled in the biggest finish of the day which was a stunning 158 against George Townsend in the very first leg of his opening match. George Lynch earlier in the day threatened a nine-dart leg as he kicked off a leg with two maximums, despite not achieving perfection, he enjoyed a 3-1 win over Liam Mason.
