Target would like to give a warm welcome to Logan Gilmour, the latest signing to our Elite 1 programme. The Scottish star from Cowdenbeath aged 11, may be our youngest recruit to date, but he has proven that talent can start at any age.

The goal of our Elite 1 programme is to help young, gifted dart players form into top pros and has already successfully produced some of the sport's most promising talents, including the likes of Youth World Champions Keane Barry and Bradley Brooks. Head of Youth Development, Lorraine Winstanley said:

"I'm so pleased to have Logan on the programme, as the youngest addition to team Elite 1 he is a real talent and is already showing his class by winning his JDC tour card outright."
