On Wednesday 26th January the Gibraltar Darts Youth Academy hosted their second Ranking event of the 2019/20 season. The ranking took place at the “George Federico Darts Hall”, the home of darts in Gibraltar.
Once again it was a brilliant turnout with a total of 24 youngsters turning up.
The 6 Rankings are seeded with four seeded players. The seeded players for the first 3 Rankings are based on the top 4 highest players from the previous year, which are Dylan Duo Jnr (Seed 1), Joseph Borge (Seed 2), Casey Dyer (Seed 3) & Elton Victory (Seed 4). However, for the last 3 Rankings the four seeded players will change to whoever is in the top 4 of the league at the time the 4th Ranking is played.
With 2 events out of 6 played things are looking very tight at the top of the standings, but with four more events to play, these youngsters have everything to play for to secure a place in the top 4.
The top 4 at the end of the season will be the four that represent Gibraltar at this years European Youth Cup to be held in Budapest, Hungary.
17 year-old Kevagn Pereira claimed his first career Youth ranking title in what will be his last season as a youth player.
Kale Francis recored the only 180 of the night and Nico Bado produced the highest finish with a 103.
