Friday evening will see yet another rising star of the future gracing the Ally Pally stage.





Earlier in the competition JDC World Champion Keane Barry from Ireland made his second appearance in PDC World Darts Championships following last years JDC World title victory. Brooks however has had a magical end to 2020 with his appearance in the World Darts Championships by virtue of his dramatic World Youth title win last month against Joe Davis in Coventry.

In only the second world youth final to go the distance it was the 20 year old from lancashire who scooped £10,000 and a spot in the worlds this friday. 


In such a short career Brooks has inspired so many and not just other young players.

Director of the Blackburn Youth Darts Academy Keith Brunt commented, 


Bradley was the reason I formed Blackburn Youth Darts Academy. His attitude, determination and passion for the game inspired me to create something for other young players in the area. Bradley has always supported the work we do at the academy. He is a fantastic lad and all of us at the academy are so happy for him becoming PDC World Youth Champion. He is a great role model for all the young players to follow and his achievements are a perfect example of where players can progress, especially now with so many opportunities the JDC system provides. We all wish Bradley the very best for the future in is career and I am sure it won't be is last televised PDC title he claims"


Steve Brown JDC Chairman also commented, 

"It’s been an absolute pleasure watching Bradley blossom since winning the inaugural JDC European championship in 2017. 

Since then he has gone on to win two tour cards back to back and claim the title of the PDC world youth champion.


On a personal level it’s been a pleasure to be able to play alongside one of the former JDC academy players on the pro tour and of course next year Keane Barry will join us at the very top table.

Bradley’s personal accomplishments can only help solidify the future pathway for all the young stars that attend JDC academies all over the world".


Bradley will take on Dirk van Duijvenbode in the first match on Friday evening live on Sky Sports.
