Roes eases past Large to claim WDF Boys’ World Championship

Bradly Roes beat Charlie Large 3-1 to claim the WDF Boys’ World Championship on Finals Day at Lakeside. 

Large produced one of the shocks of the week in beating former champion Leighton Bennett during Semi-Final Saturday but struggled with double trouble in the early phases of the game. 

Dutchman Roes punished him, wrapping up the first 3-1 with a 17-darter before taking the second 3-0.

England’s Large managed to halve the deficit by winning the third set to nil but his comeback was abruptly ended in set four by Roes, who threw his first two 180s of the week before hitting double 10 to wrap up the title and the £5,000 top prize with a 3-1 victory.

Roes now joins compatriots Colin Roelofs and Justin van Tergouw as the third Dutch winner of this competition and also becomes a two-time Youth World Champion having beaten Leighton Bennett to win the JDC World Championship back in December.
