Luke Littler, 16, secures PDC World Darts Championship semi-final spot with £100,000 win



Teenager’s unstoppable journey continues with commanding victory at Ally Pally

In a dazzling display of skill and determination, Luke Littler, affectionately known as Luke the Nuke, has stormed into the PDC World Darts Championship semi-finals, securing a £100,000 jackpot. The 16-year-old sensation’s fairy-tale run at the Ally Pally continues, captivating audiences and leaving opponents in his wake.

Fresh off the heels of his triumph over veteran Brendan Dolan in a commanding 5-1 victory, Littler’s spectacular journey marks a dream start to the New Year. Only six months after leaving secondary school, he stands just one win away from booking a spot in the championship final on Wednesday.

In this latest showdown, Dolan, known as the History Maker, was no match for the Kebab Kid’s relentless scoring and strategic brilliance on the oche. Littler’s performance, with an average of 101.93, showcased his dominance, leaving Dolan comprehensively outscored and defeated.

Littler’s incredible run, against pre-event odds of 150-1, has already earned him a minimum six-figure prize and a coveted spot in the top 60 on the Order of Merit. With two more victories, he could become the youngest darts world champion in history.

Celebrating his triumph, Littler expressed his excitement, saying, “Wow. I am in the semi-finals on my debut. I am glad to get here. My performances have been good. It went well up there. If I keep it up, I have a good chance of winning. Now I am dreaming, I am only two games away. I am definitely thinking about the title.”

Littler’s charismatic on-stage presence was evident as he engaged with the crowd, even taking selfies on stage to celebrate his achievements. With each step, he has captured the hearts of darts enthusiasts, and his infectious confidence and talent have made him a formidable force on the world stage.

As he prepares to face former world champion Rob Cross in the semi-finals, Littler remains focused on the ultimate prize. His exceptional board management, combined with his averages and finishing prowess, makes him a standout contender in the championship.

The Happy Nuke Year indeed unfolds with Littler’s remarkable journey, and fans eagerly await the next chapter of this teenage prodigy’s rise in the world of professional darts.
