With Christmas approaching, anticipation is building for the PDC World Darts Championship, which starts on December 15.  

Aged just 16, Warrington’s Luke Littler is the youngest player in the draw and has been making waves in the sport all year.  

Littler is one of the most exciting talents to emerge for many years and has been beating seasoned professionals in the Modus Super Series.  

Before making his Ally Pally debut, Luke defeated Gian van Veen in the final of the Winmau World Youth Championship last Sunday. Previous winners include Luke Humphries and current world champion Michael Smith.
