Lightcliffe Affiliate Luke Makes World PDC Event
The readers of this column will have seen Lightcliffe’s new affiliate initiative evolve steadily over the last few months and the most notable addition being Warrington’s own Luke Littler.
Fresh from his unbelievable win recently at the Youth World Darts Championship this teenage darts sensation has now managed to secure a two-year PDC tour card meaning that he can now enter all official darts events around the globe.
Luke is set to make his first ever appearance on the sport’s biggest stage namely the PDC World Darts Championship at the Alexandra Palace in London.
The tournament, which starts today will see Luke take on Dutchman Christian Kist in the first round of tonight’s evening session. Kist is a serious opponent and a contender for this year’s event having won the BDO World championship in 2012 so to say that our Luke will be thrown in at the deep end is an understatement.
The event, sponsored by Paddy Power, starts this evening and will be broadcast on Sky Sports live.
I’m sure all of you would like to join all of us in wishing Luke the very best of luck in this evening’s tournament and watch this space for forthcoming events at the dealership where Luke will be paying us a visit.
