Humphries after claiming World Youth Championship glory: ‘This has been a long time coming’

In and amongst all the Players Championship Finals action, Luke Humphries produced a whitewash win to defeat Adam Gawlas in the PDC World Youth Championship final.

Humphries who has dominated the Development Tour for some time said that a dream of his has come true.

Also he said from his perspective, it was a long time coming and that also he is looking forward to seeing where his opponent goes from here.

"It's been a dream of mine so I'm over the moon," said Humphries. "In the last three years, in my opinion, I've been the best Youth player and this has been a long time coming.

"There was a lot of pressure on me and I had to be ruthless. To win 6-0 is amazing and it was a great win for me. I played well but maybe the scoreline is a little bit harsh on Adam.

"He's a great talent and it's amazing to think that he's only been playing the game for nine months, and I'd love to see where he is in five years."
