Northants Youth Darts: January 2015 FINALS 10/01/15
The Northants Youth Darts Championship Finals took place at Rileys on Saturday 10th January 2015. After two qualifying events, there were 8 seeds already in the tournament, with a prize fund of £170 to play for!
Eleven players entered a knockout competition, with places on offer to compete against the eight seeds, in the main draw. The first four qualifers impressed; including Craeg Doggett, Dan Owens, Owen Judkins and Nicole Dunkley. These were joined by three "lucky losers" in the main event.
With 16 players starting the main event, all but one seed, made it through to the last eight; as Craeg Doggett beat an off-form Conor Frost 2-1.
Many results went to form, as seeds 1-4 all made the semi-finals. Number 1 and 2 seeds soon hit form, having comprehensive victories in their respective semi-final matches, against Luke Carr and George O'Neill.
Coby Jones-Swanson and Jamie Culley came face-to-face in the final, putting on a superb display of darts, which culminated in a seven-game thriller, as Coby won the title in a 4-3 victory, taking home the £100 winners prize. Jamie as runner-up took home £40, with £15 given to the semi finalists Luke and George. A full breakdown of results and stats from the day, can be found here.
