Luke Humphries is celebrating the biggest day of his darting life!

He has won the 2017 PDC Unicorn Development Tour and with it earns a prized place at the World Championship and a Tour Card to play full-time on the PDC circuit next year. 

The final weekend of the Development Tour also saw big success for Team Unicorn youngster Ted Evetts (pictured), who claimed a memorable maiden title. 

But it was the 22-year-old from Newbury who claimed the big prize....Humphries won event 20 on Sunday, which is his 5th Development Tour title. He beat Jake Jones 5-3 in the final to take his total on the Development Order of Merit to £13,400.

Humphries lost the final of event 19 in a deciding leg to Rowby-John Rodriguez. The Austrian had been beaten in the final of event 18 by Evetts!

The other winner of the weekend was Belgian youngster Mike de Decker with a 5-3 success over Kurt Parry. 

Evetts won eight games to take his title and finish 5th on the Development Tour Order of Merit. There were three Unicorn players in the top five. Dimitri van den Bergh was second. Of course, he didn't play the final weekend in Wigan because of his heroics at the World Series Finals in Glasgow.

Adam Hunt came third in the table. He lost a semi-final and quarter-final over the weekend. And Evetts also reached the semi-final of event 20 before being edged out by Humphries. 

And it is a big day on Monday in Wigan with the final stages of the PDC Unicorn World Youth Championship, followed by the qualifier for the Grand Slam of Darts.
