LUKE HUMPHRIES and Ted Evetts shared victories as the second PDC Unicorn Development Tour weekend of 2018 concluded at Halle 39 in Hildesheim on Sunday.

Humphries claimed his sixth Development Tour title, and his first PDC title of the year, with a 5-2 win over Niels Zonneveld in the final of Event Seven in Germany.

The Newbury thrower, who made his World Championship debut last December after topping the 2017 Development Tour standings, continued his progress by picking up the £2,000 title.

The 23-year-old overcame Mikkel Knudsen, Hendrik Eggermann, Callum Loose and Rhys Hayden as he reached the quarter-finals.

There, he enjoyed a 5-3 win over Evetts before edging past Tommy Wilson 5-4 to book his place in the final against Zonneveld.

Event Eight saw rising star Evetts go all the way to double his career tally of Development Tour wins as he recorded a 5-2 triumph over Geert Nentjes.

Evetts, who also made his World Championship debut last December, bounced back from his quarter-final loss in the day’s earlier tournament by going all the way.

The 20-year-old beat Sebastian Pohl, Jacob Gwynne, William Borland, Danny Van Trijp and Rowby-John Rodriguez - Saturday's Event Five winner - to reach the last eight.

Evetts then posted two 5-1 victories over Hayden and Josh McCarthy before claiming his first title of the year with a win over Nentjes.

The PDC Unicorn Development Tour continues on June 9-10 with four more £10,000 tournaments at the Robin Park Tennis Centre in Wigan.
