Luke Littler will make his debut at the World Darts Championship in London in December, but the 16-year-old wonderkid from England will play another tournament at Alexandra Palace during the World Darts Championship.
'The Nuke' qualified Friday for the final of the JDC World Championship. This association organizes a world championship for darters up to the age of 16. During the preliminaries, Littler conceded only five legs in nine matches. Littler also recorded two averages of 103 and of 107 per turn.
The final of the JDC Youth World Championship has for years been played prior to an afternoon session at the major World Darts Championship. Despite this, Littler already crowned himself youth world champion at the PDC. In late November, he defeated Gian van Veen in the final of the PDC World Youth Championship.
