Henry Coates

    Unicorn Darts are delighted to announce our brand new signing; 12-year-old Henry Coates from Matlock, Derbyshire.

    Henry is the latest recruit to join Team Unicorn's Generation 180 category, launched specifically for Academy and Junior players, who are the future of the sport. Henry comes highly recommended by Jamie Caven, where he is a regular player at Jamie's Academy in Derby.

    “I’m extremely proud that the JCDA (Jamie Caven Darts Academy) has helped Henry to progress over the past 4-5 years since we began,” Jamie said. “Henry is an example of why we began the academy, to nurture aspiring youngsters to develop into our sport, and for him to join me with the World’s leading darts manufacturer is testament to himself and to the academy. I’m sure Henry’s natural talent and progression will see him have a very bright future.”

    This year, Henry was crowned champion of champions winner at the JC Darts Academy, closing the final with a maximum and a 14-dart leg. He’s also competed on the Junior Darts Corporation circuit for the last few years and finished 19th on the overall Order of Merit back in 2016, at the age of just 10. He was crowned Derbyshire Youth Player of the Season back in 2017 and also received three man of the match awards for their U18 side.

    Unicorn has a proud history of supporting and championing Junior Tours and Competitions in the UK.
