England's top talents including Littler and Bennett rule on final weekend JDC Advanced Tour

Leighton Bennett and Luke Littler took the titles at the last four tournaments of the JDC Advanced Tour last weekend. This circuit is open to players aged between 10 and 17.

England has three top players in the making with the above names, as well as 16-year-old peer Thomas Banks. The trio throws 90+ and 100+ averages with ease.

The first tournament of the weekend was a triumph for Bennett, who beat Banks 6-4 in the final. Banks also made it to the final match of the second event, but this time had to beat Littler 6-4 as well.

Littler then finished second himself at JDC Advanced Tour 11 as Bennett beat him in that final. However, 'The Nuke' still grabbed his second title of the weekend by winning the final tournament at the expense of Lewis Bell (6-2).

The JDC Advanced Tour ranking was won by Littler, who amassed 36 points over 12 tournaments. The young Englishman won five tournaments. Bennett finished in second place with 24 points, while Banks was third with 20 points. Jenson Walker was 'best of the rest' with 17 points.
