Jarred Cole tasted success for the first time on the PDC Development Tour as he claimed PDC Development Tour 16 in Peterborough on Sunday afternoon. Cole has been tipped by many for success as the Hertfordshire youngster dominated the JDC UK Tour in 2017.

Cole won the Finder Darts Masters youth title last December, and despite narrowly missing out on a tour card, Cole reached the final in his very first PDC Challenge Tour event as he narrowly lost out to Simon Preston. With Cole playing well on the Challenge Tour, he was then able to participate on the PDC Pro Tour. Cole reached a QF on the Players Championship series earlier in 2018, and with the Hatfield ave being able to play in three seperate tiers of the PDC system, It’s given him the experience needed to push on in his progression.

At PDC Development Tour 16, Cole saw off Christian Bunse in a convincing 5-1 victory whilst recording an impressive 96.7 average.

Cole recorded a number of staggering averages over the course of the event in Peterborough as he enjoyed victories over Mike van Duivenbode 4-1 (83.0), Stephen Rosney 4-1 (72.5), Josh Davies 4-0 (80.2), Morgan Smith 4-3 (81.2), Ryan Meikle 4-2 (93.5), Lewis Pride 5-2 (86.0) & Scott Dale 5-3 (94.1)

Earlier in the event, Rowby-John Rodriguez produced perfection as he fired in a nine-dart leg in his match with Rob Hewson.
