Yesterday 8 of our Elite 1 players competed in the PDC World Youth Championship where 96 of the brightest prospects in darts battled it out to be crowned champion.

Elite1's rising star Bradley Brooks fought his way through an incredibly high quality field to reach the PDC World Youth Championship final.

The 20 year old from Blackburn, who won his PDC Tour Card back at the start of this year, cruised through the group stages only dropping 1 leg in the process. He then overcame Rhys Griffin 6-2 in the first knockout round, before seeing-off three fellow members of the senior PDC Tour to reach the final for the first time in his career.

Bradley joins fellow Target pros Ricky Evans, Nathan Aspinall and Corey Cadby in reaching the final of the event, and he is set to take on English talent Joe Davis in November - with the winner receiving the title and £10,000.

"This is what we're all here for, to qualify for the final," said Brooks. "It's been really tough, everyone is a great standard and I've had ups and downs.

The rest our Elite 1 competitors also had some very strong performances in the tournament with Keane Barry & Jarred Cole both reaching the final 16.
