Template - Date: JDC Joy for Barry

Irish teenager Barry, 17, has broken through in 2019 and made a big impression by winning the JDC’s DartConnect Junior International Open in September as well as the Tom Kirby Memorial Irish Matchplay the following month.


Having also come through the early rounds of the Junior World Championship in Gibraltar in September, Barry took to the stage alongside emerging Czech Republic ace Gawlas to claim the newly-titled Tommy Cox Trophy.

Gawlas – the PDC Unicorn World Youth Championship runner-up last month – took an early lead in the final and countered a 117 finish from Barry with a 120 combination to level in leg four. Barry followed a 90 finish on the bull with a 14-darter as he moved 4-2 up, with Gawlas taking out 106 to reply before double four secured glory.

Gawlas has only been playing since February 2019, but after breaking through with a European Tour appearance in August has been tipped for a big future in the sport. Barry’s Irish Matchplay success had secured his spot in the World Championship, where he took on Vincent van der Voort last Monday, and the teenager is now setting his sights on securing a PDC Tour Card at the 2020 Qualifying School.

Following the success of the JDC’s Festival of Darts in Gibraltar in September – which featured the early rounds of the Junior World Darts Championship alongside the Junior International Open and the Junior World Cup – the JDC have committed to staging events in the new Europa Point facility for the next six years.

The JDC’s 2020 Junior Darts Tour, for players aged 10-18, will feature ten events in the UK ahead of a Grand Finals in August, with the Junior World Championship then being held later in the year.

Template - Date: Ladbrokes Players Championship Finals

Michael van Gerwen won the Ladbrokes Players Championship Finals title for a fifth time with a brilliant 11-9 win over Gerwyn Price in a sensational final.


World Champion Van Gerwen had been defeated by Price in the semi-finals of the Grand Slam of Darts a week ago, with the sport’s top two current form players meeting again this time in the decider. Price went within touching distance of claiming a second successive televised title as he sought to follow up his Grand Slam victory with glory at the Butlin’s Minehead Resort, edging into an 8-7 lead in the final.

However, Van Gerwen found one last push to claim the £100,000 title and erase the memories of his loss in last year’s final to Daryl Gurney. Van Gerwen had landed a nine-darter against Adrian Lewis on Saturday and then overcame Mervyn King in the quarter-finals and Ian White in the semi-finals, seeing off the Stoke ace with an 11-8 victory.

Price had followed up a clinical quarter-final win over Stephen Bunting – where he averaged almost 109 in a 10-3 victory – by coming from 4-1 down to defeat Chris Dobey 11-8 in the last four. Despite coming from two legs behind to move 8-7 up against Van Gerwen, the Welshman was left to rue the Dutchman’s late blitz as he was forced to settle for the £50,000 runner-up prize.

White produced two 180s in a brilliant deciding leg as he edged out William O’Connor 10-9 to reach his first televised ranking semi-final, finally ending his unwanted run of last eight defeats. Dobey, meanwhile, followed up October’s appearance in the last four at the World Grand Prix with another strong showing as he picked up a memorable 10-2 quarter-final win over Raymond van Barneveld.

Van Barneveld now progresses to his final tournament before retirement at next month’s World Championship, having enjoyed wins over Nathan Aspinall, Joe Cullen and Glen Durrant earlier in the weekend in Minehead.

PDC Unicorn World Youth Championship Final

Adam Gawlas 0-6 Luke Humphries (Best of 11 legs

Luke Humphries took glory in the 2019 PDC Unicorn World Youth Championship with a superb 6-0 whitewash of Adam Gawlas in Minehead on Sunday night.

Newbury’s Humphries, competing in his final game at youth level, followed up his success in topping the PDC Unicorn Development Tour Order of Merit in 2018 and 2019 by claiming the £10,000 World Youth Championship title.

Humphries was in ruthless form against Czech teenager Gawlas, a 17-year-old who only took up the sport in February and was making his first appearance in front of the TV cameras.

Two missed doubles from Gawlas in leg one allowed Humphries in to break throw, and he took out 112 for a 3-0 lead before a trio of 14-darters – each begun with a 180 – secured the coveted title.

“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.”

Luke Humphries & Adam Gawlas (Lawrence Lustig, PDC)

Humphries added: “The Development Tour has made me the player I am and I want to thank the PDC for what they’ve done to bring this system in.

“This is my last ever youth tournament and it’s time to take the step up, but it’s a fitting end. It’s special to lift this trophy in my last ever youth tournament.

“I worked hard to win this and I think it was my destiny to win this in my final year as a youth player. It’s my ambition now to be the first player to win the World Youth Championship and then the World Championship so the hard work starts now.

“It’s time to start upping my practice because on my day I think I can live with anyone, and on the big stage is where I play my best game.”

The 24-year-old has spoken publicly about his struggles with anxiety this year, and hopes that his triumph can be an inspiration to those in a similar situation.

He said: “A lot of people out there give up and six months ago I could have walked away from darts so I hope people can look at this and realise what you can achieve.”

Template - Date: Grand Slam of Darts

Gerwyn Price produced a scintillating display to beat Peter Wright 16-6 on Sunday night to win the BoyleSports Grand Slam of Darts.

Price produced the performance of his life to retain the BoyleSports Grand Slam of Darts title in incredible fashion by defeating Peter Wright 16-6 in Sunday’s final.

The Welshman followed up his brilliant maiden career victory over Michael van Gerwen in Sunday afternoon’s semi-finals with an unstoppable display to lift the Eric Bristow Trophy once again in Wolverhampton.

Price had never previously defeated Van Gerwen in 18 previous career meetings, but emerged a 16-12 winner in their last four clash to keep his title hopes alive at the Aldersley Leisure Village.

He then wrote his name into the record books with a relentless demolition of Wright to claim back-to-back Grand Slam wins, averaging 107.86 and hitting 11 180s during a remarkbale display.

Price led 10-5 after 15 legs with an average of over 113 and no leg by either player over 15 darts in a very high quality match. Price now wins the Grand Slam of Darts for the second consecutive year after beating Gary Anderson in last years final.

The welshman defeated Michael van Gerwen and Peter Wright disposed of BDO Champion Glen Durrant in the earlier semi finals this afternoon.

Template - Date: World Series Finals

Michael van Gerwen clinched the 2019 Jack’s Casino World Series of Darts Finals, beating fellow Dutchman Danny Noppert 11-2 on home soil in Amsterdam.


The World Number One blitzed through the pack on the final day of action at the AFAS Live, dropping just 12 legs in victories against Jonny Clayton, Mensur Suljovic and Noppert on his way to the title. Averaging just under 102 for the tournament, Van Gerwen was at his dominant best throughout.

Noppert, playing in his first PDC televised final, started the brighter by clinching the opening leg but quickly faded. Perhaps jaded from his epic last-leg Semi-Final victory over Dave Chisnall, Noppert struggled to keep pace with Van Green who was finding the treble 20 with ease – landing nine maximums in total.

A string of nine successive legs followed from the reigning World Champion, as he raced to within two of the title at the second interval. Looking for a showpiece finish, Van Gerwen landed seven perfect darts and scored 499 in nine, before floundering on double-one, allowing Noppert to take out 42 to get a second leg on the board.

But the title was quickly sealed by Van Gerwen as he clinched the remaining two legs to add to his victories in 2015, 2016 and 2017.

In a tournament marked as the farewell of a legend in his home country as Raymond van Barneveld bowed out after being beaten 10-8 by Dave Chisnall in the last eight, it was perhaps fitting that the final was contested by two younger Dutchmen.

It was a good run for the five-time World Champion as he produced some of his best darts of the year, but ultimately bid his farewell to the Dutch crowd in the quarter-finals. But Chisnall was then denied a repeat of the World Grand Prix Final with Van Gerwen at the hands of Noppert.

The 28-year-old produced an incredible 102 checkout in the deciding leg to capitalise on a missed match dart from Chisnall and book his place in the final. That victory for Noppert was also bad news for Suljovic, with the Dutchman qualifying for the 2019 Grand Slam of Darts at the expense of the Austrian.

That was not the only drama that Noppert had faced on the final day in Amsterdam. The quarter-finals saw him miss a staggering 12 match-darts against Ian White before eventually sealing the win in a last leg decider.

The run to the final marks the Dutchman’s best PDC result and he spoke of his pride after the decider. Noppert will return to action next weekend as the Grand Slam of Darts takes place in Wolverhampton with the draw for the event taking place on Tuesday (November 5).

Template - Date: Development Tours

The 2019 PDC Unicorn Development Tour season concluded on Sunday as top two Ted Evetts and Luke Humphries shared wins in the year’s final two events.


Evetts’ runaway success at the top of the Development Tour Order of Merit was already assured going into Event 19, where the 22-year-old claimed his eighth tournament victory of 2019. Having taken victory in Event 18 on Saturday, Evetts’ winning streak continued at the Robin Park Tennis Centre as he defeated Ciaran Teehan 5-2 in the final.

Evetts also defeated Humphries 4-3 in the Last 16 of the event, and saw off former JDC World Junior Champion Rusty-Rodriguez in the semi-finals. Evetts’ challenge in Event 20 was ended by Dan Read in the Last 16, before Humphries went on to take the title – mirroring his Event 17 success on Saturday.

The World Championship finalist negotiated a tricky route to the final, defeating former Development Tour event winners Mike De Decker and Mike van Duivenbode in his opening two matches.

He also had to see off German World Cup star Martin Schindler in the semi-finals – averaging almost 100 in a 5-2 win – before claiming a 5-3 win over Geert Nentjes in the final. That clash proved to be a shoot-out for second place in the Development Tour Order of Merit, with the 2017 & 2018 table-topper taking that slot this time around.

Nentjes’ consolation will be qualification for the William Hill World Darts Championship, with the top two non-qualified players from the Development Tour Order of Merit securing a place at Alexandra Palace.

With Evetts, Humphries and Ryan Meikle currently in provisional ProTour Order of Merit qualifying places, Ciaran Teehan also looks set to secure a World Championship spot, which would mean a debut for the Irish prospect.

Meikle and Teehan are also in line to secure PDC Tour Cards for 2020/2021 from the Development Tour Order of Merit, with a further six players set to secure free entry to the 2020 PDC Qualifying School.

The focus now moves to the 2019 PDC Unicorn World Youth Championship, which will see the early rounds held on Monday in Wigan. The 96-player field will be split into 32 groups of three players for the initial round-robin phase, with the group winners progressing to the knockout phase from the last 32 onwards.

The World Youth Championship final will then take place on Sunday November 24 in Minehead between the semi-finals and final of the Ladbrokes Players Championship Finals.

Template - Date: European Championship

World number two Rob Cross denied Gerwyn Price of a second televised title in the decider beating his Welsh opponent 11-6 in front of a packed crowd.


The final began with Cross striking the opening blow, breaking the throw in leg three to take a 3-2 lead in to the first break. A further break of throw followed with Cross moving 7-3 clear and four legs away from securing the European title.

It was a 4th televised final for Gerwyn Price, who would have moved up to a career high world number 3 with a win. However, the 34-year-old was unable to find the same kind of form that won him the Grand Slam title almost a year ago as Cross continued to edge closer to the victory.

Cross, who had made three previous TV finals in 2019, having been runner-up in the Premier League and UK Open before going on to win the World Matchplay, secured his first European Championship on double 16.

The victory sets up a fascinating end to 2019 with the World Series Finals, Grand Slam and Players Championship Finals all to come before the year ending World Championship, with Cross looking to put pressure on world number one Michael van Gerwen.

Cross began the day with a 10-6 win over Ricky Evans where the former World Champion averaged nearly 100 to progress to the semi-finals where he would meet Daryl Gurney.

The encounter between the pair was arguably the match of the day with the pendulum swinging both ways before Cross eventually secured an 11-9 win. Gerwyn Price awaited in the final after the Welshman had first defeated Vincent van der Voort 10-8 and then World Championship runner-up Michael Smith 11-7 in the last four.

The final was a match Cross always seemed in control of but a run to another final for Price signifies that he will be a threat to the field in the remaining events in 2019. Televised darts returns on Friday as the World Series Finals heads to Amsterdam for the first time in what will be Raymond van Barneveld’s final competitive appearance in Holland before retiring.

Michael van Gerwen followed up last week’s World Grand Prix triumph in Dublin by taking the £100,000 Champions League title, lifting a specially-commissioned belt after winning five matches across the weekend.


The success sees Van Gerwen complete a “Green Sweep” of PDC Premier televised events, with the Champions League having been the only gap in his amazing roll of honour. Van Gerwen topped Group A at the Morningside Arena with wins over James Wade, Michael Smith and Gary Anderson, before edging past Gerwyn Price 11-10 in an outstanding semi-final.

A dramatic final also went all the way, with Wright missing three match darts when leading 10-7 before the Dutchman reeled off four straight legs to claim glory. “It’s incredible for me,” said Van Gerwen. “This tournament was on my bucket list and it’s a really important one for me to win.

“This was a phenomenal weekend for me with a high standard of darts. Peter put me under pressure and I made it difficult for myself in the final. “I missed a few darts on doubles here and there and I shouldn’t have put myself in that position, but Peter missed a couple of clear darts to win the game and I took great advantage of that.

“I played well all the way through the weekend and did everything I had to do. I averaged over 100 in every match but I know I can improve and there’s more in the tank.

“It gives me a lot of confidence because we have lots of big events coming up. It’s nice to have so many tournaments on the calendar and I love to perform on stage, especially when I’m playing well and winning.”

Van Gerwen’s success maintained his record of never having lost a televised final to Wright, bringing back memories of the 2017 Premier League final where the Scot also missed match darts.

Template - Date: World Grand Prix

Michael van Gerwen scooped his fifth title at the BoyleSports World Grand Prix in brilliant fashion by defeating Dave Chisnall 5-2 in Saturday’s final in Dublin.


Van Gerwen followed up his previous victories in 2012, 2014, 2016 and 2018 by retaining the title in the double-start tournament for the first time by continuing his dominance of the event. The World Champion picked up £110,000 for the triumph as he condemned Chisnall to defeat in the final for a second time in six years, despite a plucky showing which included a dozen 180s.

However, after sharing the opening two sets, Van Gerwen showed his class in the deciding leg of the next two to pull clear before holding off Chisnall’s brief rally to close out a glorious triumph. Van Gerwen dominated the early exchanges, winning the opening set 3-0 without allowing Chisnall a dart at a double.

The 2013 runner-up hit back well in the second, trading 13-darters with Van Gerwen before winning the set’s deciding leg with a 101 checkout on double 16. The third set also went all the way as Van Gerwen came from 2-1 down to level with a 13-darter before taking out 111 to claim the set.

A 114 checkout moved the Dutchman 2-0 up in set four, only for Chisnall to land seven perfect darts in an 11-darter to respond before a 14-dart finish forced a decider. However, Van Gerwen crucially stepped up once again, defying a 180 from his rival to land tops for a 13-darter and a 3-1 advantage in the final.

Van Gerwen then took set five by a 3-1 scoreline to continue his surge towards a fifth title, although the World Champion could only watch as a brilliant 13-darter from Chisnall in the set six decider saw him hit back to 4-2.

Chisnall also shared the opening two legs of set seven, and the pair then traded 14-darters before another deciding leg went to Van Gerwen as double six sealed the title.

Template - Date: Gibraltar Darts Trophy

Krzysztof Ratajski made history as he became the first Polish winner on the European Tour by defeating Dave Chisnall 8-2 in the Gibraltar Darts Trophy final on Sunday night.


Having never previously won past the quarter-finals on the European Tour, Ratajski saw off Joe Cullen, Ian White and Daryl Gurney to secure his spot in the decider in Gibraltar. Chisnall, who hit a nine-darter in his quarter-final clash with James Wade, took the opening two legs of the final, including a 117 finish to break the Pole’s throw.

Ratajski, however, then made no mistake in breaking straight back with an incredible 124 finish, followed by a hold of throw to level the scores at 2-2. From there the Polish ace took control of the match, reeling off a further six legs on the spin to claim the £25,000 title and make history for East European darts.

Ratajski (Luke Hewitt, PDC)

“It’s incredible, I still don’t believe it,” said Ratajski, who averaged 102.85 in the final. “I’ve won floor tournaments but this is the first one I’ve won in front of a crowd. “This is a great night for Polish darts and I’m just so happy to lift this title.”

Danish Darts Open Champion Chisnall cane close to adding a second European Tour title to his 2019 trophy haul. Chisnall defeated Jermaine Wattimena 6-4 in the third round before striking perfection in a 6-4 victory over Wade. It then took a last-leg decider to see Chisnall reach his second European Tour title of 2019 as he edged past Nathan Aspinall 7-6 in the semi-finals.

Template - Date: The PDPA Junior World Cup

The Netherlands’ victory in the PDPA Junior World Cup in Gibraltar was followed by a win for Keane Barry in the DartConnect Junior International Open and a place in the JDC World Championship where he will face Adam Gawlas.


The JDC staged a three-day festival of darts at the new Europa Point Arena, culminating on Thursday with the early rounds of the Scott Farms International Junior World Championship. Tuesday’s opening event saw the Netherlands A team – which included reigning Junior World Champion Jurjen van der Velde – win the final against Netherlands B by a 4-0 scoreline.

Van der Velde was joined in the Netherlands A team by Owen Roelofs – the runner-up in the 2017 Junior World Championship – Daan Bastiaansen and Luke van der Kwast. The quartet also defeated England A, Ireland A, Spain, USA, China A and England B during the 16-nation event, which saw 26 teams competing.


Keane Barry and Adam Gawlas saw off Daan Bastiaansen and Justin Hewitt respectively and will now play on the Alexandra stage to play the final in December. 

Barry has established himself in the past few weeks in particular as a real stand out. This has seen him secure his spot in the Tom Kirby Irish Matchplay final where he will face Liam Gallagher at the World Grand Prix and he also yesterday won the JDC Junior International Open.

This means that he will at least appear at the Alexandra Palace once this December with a Junior and Senior bow potentially on the cards.

Gawlas on the other hand despite not averaging at the heights of Barry has had a stunning few months including showing how good he is at the recent Austrian Darts Championship and the Czech ace will hope to show signs of the future when he faces the Irish ace later this year.

Quarter Finals:
Justin Hewitt 4-2 Jack Shepherd
Adam Gawlas 4-1 Tomas Houdlek
Daan Bastiaansen 4-2 Connor Pickett
Keane Barry 4-2 Luke Littler

Wednesday’s DartConnect International Open saw Irish teenager Barry come through a field of 129 players to claim the title, edging out Nathan Girvan 6-5 in a high-quality final.

He averaged 100.5 in the final, landing an 11-darter as he moved into a 4-2 lead before Scottish ace Girvan hit back to take the game into a deciding leg at five-all, only for Barry to snatch the title with a 13-dart leg.

Keane Barry (JDC)

Barry’s success is a further boost for the youngster, who will be competing in the Tom Kirby Memorial Irish Matchplay final in Dublin on Saturday October 12 against Liam Gallagher – with the winner securing a place in the William Hill World Darts Championship.

Adam Gawlas, who recently reached the third round of the Austrian Darts Championship on his European Tour debut, was a semi-finalist, alongside fellow Czech prospect Tomas Houdek.Van der Velde was defeated by Barry in the quarter-finals, while Keelan Kay’s run to  the last eight included a 105 average in his last 64 whitewash of Sankalp Salunke.

Thursday’s final day of action will see the players battling to secure spots in the Junior World Championship final, which will take place on Saturday December 21 at Alexandra Palace during the William Hill World Darts Championship.

Gerwyn Price retained the International Darts Open title in Riesa with a gritty comeback to defeat Rob Cross 8-6 in Sunday’s final.


The Welshman had claimed his maiden European Tour win at the Sachsenarena 12 months ago, and won a second £25,000 title with a memorable display. Cross enjoyed the better of the early stages in the final, leading 2-1 as a 12-darter broke throw before following a 13-darter with a sensational 148 checkout to move 4-2 up.

Price finished 121 to respond with a 12-darter, but tops saw Cross regain his two-leg cushion at 5-3. Price, though, produced some clutch third-dart doubling as he took the next three legs to move 6-5 up, punishing three misses from Cross in leg 11 as he moved back ahead.

Cross found another 13-darter as he levelled, but Price followed a 177 with an 88 finish to edge 7-6 up before taking out 108 on tops to secure the title.

The Bradford ace claimed the third ranking title of his career in brilliant fashion as he overcame World Champion Van Gerwen with a clinical and confident showing.


Having never previously won past the semi-finals on the European Tour, Cullen saw off William O’Connor, Glen Durrant and James Wade on Sunday to book his spot in the decider at the Maimarkthalle. He showed no nerves against the World Champion, opening the final with a 180 and claiming four of the opening five legs to move 4-1 up, including a 14-darter to break throw.

Van Gerwen responded in the sixth, only to see Cullen power home a 170 checkout to bring the German crowd to their feet as he opened up a 5-2 lead. Van Gerwen showed his class with three legs in a row to level the final, but Cullen regained the edge with success 13-darters to lead 7-5 – punishing misses from the Dutchman to break – before an 88 finish for a 14-darter secured the £25,000 title.

“To beat Michael in the final is amazing,” said Cullen, who averaged over 101 in the final.“It’s the biggest moment in my career, it’s great.

A four-time European Tour winner in 2019, Van Gerwen saw his bid to add further honours ended in the final for a second successive week, having lost out to Mensur Suljovic in the Austrian Darts Championship last Sunday.

Van Gerwen had avenged that loss by seeing off Suljovic 6-4 in the third round, before edging out Krzysztof Ratajski in the quarter-finals and then storming past Dave Chisnall with a 7-1 semi-final win.

Wade survived a missed match dart against Wayne Jones in the third round before seeing off Jonny Clayton 6-4 in the quarter-finals, but lost out in his bid for a second European Darts Matchplay title to Cullen.

Chisnall, June’s Danish Darts Open winner, saw his hopes of a second European Tour title of the year ended in crushing style by Van Gerwen in the last four after he had seen off Ricky Evans and Rob Cross on the day.

Durrant averaged 110 in an outstanding 6-3 third round win over Gerwyn Price earlier on Sunday, while Ratajski survived a missed match dart from Adrian Lewis in their last 16 tie. Cullen’s success sees him move back into the world’s top 16 as he jumps three places to 15th following the Mannheim triumph.

Template - Date: Austrian Darts Championship ‘ET10’

Mensur Suljovic defeated Michael van Gerwen 8-7 to win the Austrian Darts Championship in Vienna.


Home hero Mensur Suljovic took glory in the Austrian Darts Championship in Vienna with a rousing comeback from 6-3 down to win the final against Michael van Gerwen 8-7 on Sunday night.

Suljovic having never previously won a stage match in his home city, the Austrian number one rose to the challenge as he claimed his third PDC European Tour title, scooping a £25,000 top prize.

Van Gerwen played his part in a hugely entertaining final, taking a 2-0 lead and then landing a brilliant ten-darter as he moved 3-2 up. Suljovic capitalised on three missed doubles to level in leg six, only for Van Gerwen to take the next three as he moved 6-3 up.

Four missed doubles in leg ten from the World Champion allowed Suljovic to hit back, and he then took out 121 and 86 to delight the Vienna crowd by pulling level.

A miss at double 15 for a 150 checkout in the next allowed Van Gerwen to move a leg away from the title at 7-6, with Suljovic taking the game to a decider.

A timely 180 from Van Gerwen saw him be first to a finish in the final leg, but he missed the bull to take out 84 before Suljovic took out 70 on his favoured double 14 to claim a momentous victory.
