Donegal darts thrower Jordan Boyce has been selected as one of the three winners in the “Unicorn Next Generation” competition.
The 17 year old is one of the latest recruits to Team Unicorn as they prepare to tackle the PDC circuit in 2017.
From over 70 video applicants, seven were chosen to attend Finals Day at Unicorn’s showroom in Nottingham, where they were put through their paces by World Champion Gary Anderson, former World Youth Champion Michael Smith, seven-time PDC ranking event winner Jamie Caven and top referee Russ Bray.
Jordan, a BDO World Youth runner-up in January of this year, was impressive on the day and joins Morgan Smith and Connor Scutt on the team.
The trio will now be sponsored by Unicorn – the official equipment provider to the PDC – to compete at the 2017 PDC Qualifying School and across the PDC circuit next year.
“This is a fantastic opportunity for Morgan, Jordan and Connor and we congratulate them on receiving this sponsorship from Unicorn,” said PDC Chairman Barry Hearn. “With the backing of such a valued PDC partner, these three talented young players will get their chance to make a name for themselves now – the world’s their oyster!”
The trio signed their contracts with Unicorn at a small celebration in their honour today at Flight Club in London before being special guests at the William Hill World Darts Championship on Tuesday evening, where they will be presented on stage at Alexandra Palace.
