Jack Male earns an invite to England Boys Matchplay!
The Tyne & Wear youngster has gone strength to strength in the last year, winning many youth tournaments around the country. With his fine form, he has earned a place at the England Boys Matchplay next month.
Report from his Facebook page from the day he qualified on August 11th –
“Jack was in Blackburn today for another England Youth Grand Prix event, looking to add his third Grand Prix title of 2019 and 4th in all.
The group stage handed Jack ties against Charlie Manby and Matthew Emmett. Jack’s doubling deserted him in his match with Manby, and despite having chances in every leg he was beaten 3-0. It left his next game as a must win to progress, and fortunately he was able to win 3-1, despite playing quite below par in the group. Nevertheless he made it into the last 16.
However, the knockouts was where Jack found his best form. He defeated Eleanor Cairns in the last 16, who would later become the Girls champion on the day. The quarter finals saw Jack get a rematch with Manby, and a high class encounter went all the way to the last leg. Jack held his nerve, fighting from behind twice in the match to win 4-3, and enter the money stages.
The semi final saw Jack take on Charlie Voorhees, who plays on the JDC circuit too. Jack produced a sublime display, winning his first 3 legs in 15, 14 and 16 darts. Jack whizzed through it 4-0 to face Luke Littler in the final.
This was the fourth time the two had met on the Grand Prix circuit this year, Jack winning on all 3 occasions. The match was high standard throughout, but missed opportunities from Jack saw him trail 2-0. He recovered and with the aid of a 13 darter he saw himself 3-2 in front. That leg saw Luke reply with an 11 darter including 2 180s. The next two were shared, setting up a last leg. Some darts on the wires of the trebles saw Jack fall behind, but when he was hot on Luke’s tail waiting to strike, Luke won with a last dart D1.”

From the BDO site….
‘Sunday’s action at the BDO Youth Festival of Darts saw the British Teenage, 18-25 Mixed Singles and Under 18’s Challenge Tour Two saw three different players step up and claim victory.
In the British Teenage, it was Newcastle-based Jack Male, who faced ‘The Wizard’, Nathan Potter.
Potter reached the quarter-finals without dropping a leg, before meeting reigning Youth World Champion Leighton Bennett, where he emerged 3-1 winner to move into the semi-finals.
Potter’s semi-final match was against Oxfordshire’s Lennon Cradock, winning 4-0 to reach his first final of the weekend.
Male had an equally dominant route to the final, beating George David Lynch 3-1 in the last 16 and securing a 3-0 win over Joseph Reid in the last eight.
A closer match in the semi-finals against U18 CT1 winner Connor Pickett, which Male won 4-2 saw him move into the final.
With both players on top form, the match went the distance, each leg going with throw. At 3-3, Male held onto his advantage to take the 2019 British Teenage Open 4-3 over Potter.’
