16 year old Jordan Boyce will play Tony O'Shea in the BDO World Championship qualifiers in Hull England today.
The Newtowncunningham teenager is taken on an opponent who is a three time finalist at Lakeside.
The qualifiers will be run this week with just four advancing to the Championships in January.
Four other Donegal players are hoping to progress, Jordan's father Paddy Boyce, Ramelton men John Murray and Clive Aiken and Sean Wilson from Buncrana.
The younger Boyce will also compete in the qualifiers for the BDO Lakeside World Youth Championship on Wednesday where he faces Brandon Nicholl of Scotland in the last 128.
