THE 2013 World Youth Champion, Smith joined the PDC circuit as a teenager and has since progressed to the top level of the sport.

Having won his first senior ranking title at a UK Open Qualifier in 2011, Smith also won a Players Championship in Spain the following year alongside five PDC Development Tour events.

After defeating Ricky Evans in the World Youth Championship final in 2013, Smith's progression continued with his first European Tour title in 2014.

The youngster then won two further European Tour events in 2015 and reached his first televised semi-final at the Grand Slam of Darts, before making his debut in the Premier League in 2016.

Victory in the 2017 Gibraltar Darts Trophy ended an 18-month wait for a title as Smith claimed his fourth career European Tour win.

The St Helens star made two semi-finals and a final of the next three European Tour events, followed by a quarter-final berth at the European Championship to earn an invite into the 2018 Premier League after a two-year absence.

Smith picked up his first World Series of Darts title in July 2018 with a win at the Shanghai Darts Masters.
