2018 PDC Unicorn Development Tour 11-12

Meikle (PDC)

RYAN MEIKLE and Ted Evetts shared victories as the third PDC Unicorn Development Tour weekend of 2018 concluded at the Robin Park Tennis Centre in Wigan on Sunday.

Suffolk thrower Meikle claimed his second Development Tour title, and his first PDC title of the year, with a 5-3 win over Austrian ace Rowby-John Rodriguez in the final of Event 11.

Meikle is one of the game's rising stars, picking up his two-year Tour Card in January, and continuing his progress in Wigan with Sunday's £2,000 Development Tour title.

The 21-year-old beat Tadhg Carroll, George Killington, Matthew Holbrook and Rhys Griffin as he progressed to the quarter-finals.

There, Meikle edged past Rusty-Jake Rodriguez 5-4 before whitewashing Evetts 5-0 in the semi-finals to set up a final tie with Rowby-John Rodriguez.

Evetts (PDC)

Event 12 saw Evetts bounce back from his semi-final loss earlier in the afternoon, recording wins over Seppe Giebens, Brad Ellis, Brian Raman, Adam Watson and Christian Bunse to reach the last eight.

The Southam star then beat yesterday's double-winner Martin Schindler 5-2 and Melvin de Fijter 5-3 to make the final where he defeated Belgian star Dimitri Van den Bergh by a 5-2 scoreline to claim his third Development Tour crown.

The PDC Unicorn Development Tour continues on September 8-9 with four more £10,000 tournaments at the Robin Park Tennis Centre in Wigan.
