Over the weekend our Australian darting sensation, Corey Cady won the PDC Unicorn World Youth Championship at Butlins Minehead. After topping the DPA order of merit, Corey has dominated the Australian Grand Prix circuit as he headed to the UK to compete in the final. Corey would play the talented young Dutchman Berry van Peer in the final. Corey showed no nerves in front of the packed house at Butlins Minehead, as over 4,000 fans cheered him on.
Corey raced into a three-nil lead over van Peer, which included a magical maximum, 126 finish and a 14 dart leg. Van Peer looked shellshocked as Corey punished him at every turn, van Peer did get a leg on the board to make it 3-1. The pair traded legs, but with the score at 5-2, van Peer was sat on double 18 when Corey rattled in another 180 forcing van Peer to miss. A brief pause to compose himself, Corey stepped up to nail 71 in two darts to crown a 6-2 victory.
The victory sees Corey £10,000 better off, guarantees himself a place at the 2017 Grand Slam of Darts, but more importantly …. And the new World Youth Champion. After Corey spoke to use. “It hasn’t really sunk in yet, but I’m over the moon,” said Cadby. “It’s massive, and I’ll only look forward now – this is just the start for me.
“It didn’t feel like I was throwing my best but it got me the win. It’s going to be amazing taking this trophy back home to show it off; it means absolutely everything.
“It’s a great experience, and I can’t wait to play against the best in the World Championship, and hopefully I’ll beat the best – I’ve no fear!”
