Leighton Bennett continues his rise in Darts after coming to prominence by winning a senior event in the BDO Cambridgeshire Open earlier this year, he is now the World Youth Champion.
This is after seeing off Nathan Girvan 3-0 in the final with a 121 checkout, the showpiece shot to claim the victory.
It was Girvan’s second attempt to win the title but it didn’t prove to be second time lucky. He averaged 86 with 37% on the doubles as well as two 180’s on his way to the win.
