Petersen believes further diversity can help next generation: "Because he looks like me I can achieve what he has achieved"

Alongside Deta Hedman, Devon Petersen also took part in the recent Black Arrows documentary which aired on Sky Sports on Wednesday evening and called for more diversification in the sport when it comes to publicity.

Petersen believes that it will inspire the next generation as they will feel they can be like their darting heroes and achieve greatness.

"The way the sport is structured now is that it's evening entertainment generally. A lot of the kids go to bed early to go to school the next day and sometimes I know some of my friends' kids will ask to stay up to just watch my game or someone they know," said Petersen alongside Hedman on the Sky Sports documentary.

"So I think there's an opportunity to introduce it in a certain way and seeing games where you've succeeded in and won tournaments showing people in colour can achieve in the sport.

"I think profile wise having that diversification on posters and it's not just white, it's not that it's colour orientated but having people and just because he looks like me I can achieve what he has achieved."
