Kay & Colley claim second Unicorn Development Tour wins of 2021

Keelan Kay (Lawrence Lustig, PDC)

Keelan Kay and Reece Colley both picked up their second PDC Unicorn UK Development Tour wins of 2021 as the action continued in Barnsley on Saturday.

The second of three days on the year's final UK Development Tour weekend saw the tally of different winners move to four from as many events at the Metrodome.

The opening event of the day saw teenager Kay pick up his second Unicorn Development Tour title after he came through a last-leg decider against Killian Heffernan.

Plymouth's Kay, who won his maiden Development Tour title in August in Event Two, doubled his tally thanks to a string of strong performances in Event Nine.

The 19-year-old beat fellow JDC product Nathan Care in the third round, before enjoying a 5-4 semi-final success over Ciaran Teehan, who was one of five Irishmen in the last eight.

He had also been taken to a deciding leg three times in the earlier rounds, and came from 2-1 down in the final to edge out Heffernan for the win.

Dudley's Colley won the year's opening Development Tour event in August and doubled his title tally by defeating Lewis Pride 5-2 in the Event Ten final.

His eight wins in the tournament included a narrow 4-3 defeat of Gibraltar's World Cup representative Craig Galliano, as well as wins over talents Jarred Cole and Nathan Rafferty in the latter stages.

The final saw Pride share the opening four legs, before three in a row for Colley sealed victory for the 24-year-old.

The PDC Unicorn UK Development Tour season concludes on Sunday with Events 11 and 12 in Barnsley.

Following Saturday's double-header, Dom Taylor retained his lead at the top of the Order of Merit with £5,600, ahead of Bradley Brooks (£5,400), Kay (£5,150) and Colley (£4,750).

The eventual Order of Merit winner will receive a place in next month's Cazoo Grand Slam of Darts and the William Hill World Darts Championship.
