James Beeton and 13-year old World Champion Leighton Beighton were victorious in Dorchester on Saturday afternoon as the Junior Darts Corporation’s Scott Farms International Junior Darts Tour came to the George Albert Hotel. For James Beeton, the 15-year old won his second JDC tour title at the very same destination where he won his debut JDC event as a 13-year old back in 2017.

En route to the title, Beeton produced some impressive displays to see off the likes of Connor Pickett (3-2), Taylor Smoldon (3-1), C.Jones-Swanson (3-2). In the Quarter-Finals, Beeton faced Blackburn’s Nathan Care who reached the final in event one in Wolverhampton. Beeton produced another strong display in a 3-0 victory over the Lancashire youngster. In the Semi-Finals, Beeton produced a nerveless display to edge past Keelan Kay (4-2) with an average of 83.8.

In the final, Beeton saved his best performance until last as the Chester-based star saw off Newcastle’s Jack Male in convincing style with a 5-1 victory. Beeton raced into a 4-0 lead with some superb finishes, the key shot was a stunning 130 finish just seconds after Male missed a dart at D20 for a 60 checkout. Beeton secured the title with an 81 checkout on the bull as the Chester-based youngster roared in delight. The live stream for event four can be found below.

In event three, Leighton Bennett was simply unstoppable as he picked up his second JDC title in the four events played. The 13-year old World Champion from Lincolnshire produced some World class displays en route to the title. Up until the Semi-Finals, Bennett didn’t even drop a single leg as he enjoyed whitewash victories over Taylor Smoldon, Tavis Dudeney, Jason Meek and Charlie Voorhees.

In the Semi-Finals, Bennett took on Buster Turner who was also very impressive over the course of the event, But the 13-year old was unplayable at times as he averaged 90.2 en route to a 4-1 victory over Turner. In the final, Bennett produced an even more convincing display as he averaged 91 in a blistering 5-1 success over multiple JDC tour event winner Brad Phillips.
