How Littler took sporting world by storm

Littler wins the Bahrain Darts Masters

You thought the Littler-Mania had finished and then what does he do? He wins the Bahrain Masters.

Not only that, he hits a nine-darter in the opening leg of the quarter-final, beating Nathan Aspinall, Gerwyn Price, and Michael van Gerwen on his way to glory.

He really is the REAL DEAL…

‘Littler is the real deal and wonderful for darts’

Sky Sports Michael Bridge said:

“It is absolutely unbelievable. He is 17 in two days, he has hit a nine-darter. He beat Nathan Aspinall, Gerwyn Price, then beats Michael van Gerwen in the final. Littler-mania is still running wild.

“We are going to see him February 1 in the Premier League in Cardiff. If there was any doubt about putting this guy in the Premier League it is over. He is the real deal.

“When the names were announced, there were a couple saying he isn’t ready. He is ready.

“He is a sensational player. He has not come out of nowhere, he was hitting nine-darters in junior tournaments at 13 and 14 years of age.

“It is a phenomonal achievement, it is a wonderful story, and it is just wonderful for darts.”

Van Gerwen gets one back

At the Dutch Masters, Littler thrived once again, getting revenge on Humphries and then beating Price once again for a spot in the final.

This time, Van Gerwen ultimately came out on top but now we have a big rivalry to follow in the Premier League in the weeks to come …
