IRELAND’S KEANE BARRY defeated reigning champion Leighton Bennett of England at the BDO World Youths Championship final in London’s O2 on Saturday.

The 17-year-old Meath native is now a dual world champion, after winning the the JDC World Junior Darts Championship at London’s Alexandra Palace last month.

Barry overcame his 14-year-old opponent 3-0 to continue a memorable couple of weeks that also saw him make his debut in the PDC World Championships, when he was the youngest player in this year’s draw and the third-youngest player ever in the senior competition.

The teen from Duleek will next attempt to secure a full PDC tour card when he competes at Q School later this month.
