The day also held a senior pairs and singles knockout.........
Ty Ward receiving the trophy
the youth title last 8 gave some big match ups Ty Ward just edged out Tom Briggs 3-1 where tom had the chance to level the game.Joel Burkhill had a tough task in taking on Cameron hinchcliffe and the Yorkshire star came through 3-0 and he was followed there by another Yorkshire players as Curtis Turner got the better of a titanic tussle over Ben Oldroyd 3-2 and in the last Q/F game it was Jack Ker making up the last 4 edging out 11yo Owen Cubit.
the first semi final was an all Yorkshire match that went down to doubles as both players gave a good show with Curtis Turner going through 3-0 over Cameron Hinchclife and in the other semi it was an all Nottinghamshire match that went right down to the wire with Ty Ward going through 3-2 over Jack Ker.
The final was a lot closer than the scoreline suggested as Ty Ward won 3-0 over Curtis turner who rood miss chances in a very good scoring game and fine efforts by both players winning through a good field of players.
The pairs semi final was won by a devilish display from Darren Johnson and Chris Gill both form the Castle Club and in the final beat John Walton and Simon Birket 3-1 in a very high scoring game with the last leg finished in 16 darts for 701.
in the senior final it was Castle Club again as John Boy Walton won 3-1 over over Brian Lewis who to be fair had his chances but John proving too good on the day.

Chris "the Burd is the word" Burd bashed in some big scores as he gave "the Kalculator" Karl Sailsbury-Roper something to think about as the burd raced to a 4-0 win and with it you can see the improvement that this league is having on players as both men looked very steady in a good game.Andy "king bundy" Umney threw in a 16 dart leg as he had too much for the novice Joel Burkhill.Two more youngsters gaining vital experience from this is Tom Briggs who won 4-1 over "jackpot" Chris Keane with both players improvement to be seen but the big match for the youngsters was the cruz derby as Antonio Cruz and Ricardo Cruz fought out a 3-3 draw with ricardo recording a 19 dart leg and a maximum.Tony Darlow rode his luck as he got a 4-2 win over Andy Bradbury with tony hitting a 14/15/19 dart legs and both hitting maximums.Richard "dickie" Brown hit a excellent 111 checkout to beat Ryan Critchlow 4-2 and Russ Simons had the same scoreline over Jason Cole.John Walton hit a 100avr. in his victory over John Daniels and Darren Johnson equalled the lowest leg recording a 12 against Pete Daffin in a 4-1 victory with Pete solice coming from a 116 c/o.Ryab Goffin and Lee Cushworth battled out a high class 3-3 draw with all but one leg going over 20 darts and Steve Briggs and Mark Pigot produced the same score as did Bob Pinder and Ryan Critchlow but as the cruz brothers had battled out a 3-3 draw so did the other brothers Richard and Paul Beck with the match ending 3-3.
