Keelan Kay was victorious at event no.7 on the Junior Darts Corporation UK Tour at Rileys in Solihull on Saturday afternoon. The Plymouth-based youngster has shown consistency on the Junior Darts Corporation over the last 12 months, and seeing him win today comes as no suprise, as the seals his place in the Junior World Darts Championships. Kay was in fantastic form over the course of the event, he kicked things off with a 3-0 victory over Thomas Bentley, he then backed that up with a great 3-2 victory over the much talked about youngster from Blackburn Nathan Care. Kay produced an impressive 88.5 average as he edged out Care. The Plymouth ace produced a 16-dart leg in the decider to advance to the Quarter-Finals.

In the last eight, Kay was dominant in a 3-0 success over Henry Coates who wasn’t at the races, but Keelan Kay was taking no prisoners as he averaged a respectable 71.6 to advance to the last four. In the Semi-Finals, Kay met his match as he came up against another talented young player in Lennon Cradock, as expected, the match went the distance as they traded blows, but Kay managed to edge past Cradock in a last-leg decider as he produced a 17-dart leg, but Cradock did have his chances as he missed 3 darts to advance to the final.

Kay sealed the title as he completed a 5-2 victory over Connor Arberry as the Plymouth ace averaged 83.9 in what was a dominant display from Kay. Earlier on in the event, Arberry fired in a monster average of 100.2 in a 3-0 win over Tavis Dudeney in the Quarter-Finals. So, next up on the Junior Darts Corporation is the final Modus UK Tour event in Wolverhampton on November 10th which coincides with the PDC Grand Slam of Darts which kicks off on the very same day, so hopefully several PDC players will come down and support what the JDC are doing.
