2019 Unicorn Development Tour 7-8

Ryan Meikle (PDC)

RYAN MEIKLE and Callan Rydz claimed PDC Unicorn Development Tour titles in Wigan on Sunday.

The Robin Park Tennis Centre played host to a total of four events across the weekend for players aged 16-23, with Sunday seeing Meikle land the Event Seven title before Rydz enjoyed success at Event Eight.

Meikle picked up his second PDC Unicorn Development Tour title of 2019, and a fourth of his career, with a 5-2 victory over Andrew Davidson in the final of Event Seven.

The 22-year-old Suffolk thrower defeated fellow-Tour Cards Holder Mike van Duivenbode, Geert Nentjes and Harry Ward on his way to the final where he sealed the win with a 104 finish.

Event Eight saw Rydz win his first PDC title, which he began in perfect style, conceding just one leg in his opening five matched en route to the quarter-finals where he edged out Kevin Doets 5-4.

The rising Newcastle star then defeated Mike de Decker 5-3, before a sensational 106.6 average saw him get the better of World Championship quarter-finalist Luke Humphries 5-2 in the final game of the day.

The Unicorn Development Tour continues with Events Nine-12 at The Marshall Arena in Milton Keynes from June 8-9.

At the conclusion of the series of 20 tournaments across 2019, the top two players on the Unicorn Development Tour Order of Merit will earn a place at Alexandra Palace for the 2019/20 William Hill World Championship.

The Development Tour season concludes with the PDC Unicorn World Youth Championship, with qualifiers from the Development Tour Order of Merit joined by international qualifiers in competing in that event.
