Quarter-final
Mario Vandenbogaerde - Chris Landman
Leighton Bennett - Nick Kenny
Adam Smith Neale - Florian Hempel
John Scott - Martijn Tailor


Good to see Leighton Bennett entering this and doing well. Shame he can’t play at the men’s Lakeside he would be one of the favourites to win it.
Pretty sure that rules abolished now, if he qualifies for Mens lakeside he can play
Well given he is a 13 year old schoolboy I doubt he will be traveling around trying to qualify for it TBH. Be intresting to see what events he does do this year though other than the JDC.

He is trying for men’s and youth BDO in Jan.

Good luck to him on doing this.

He can travel a lot as he is home schooled.

Home schooled = truant? 😁😁😁

I don't like his on-stage antics, but by god the kid can really play. Capable of getting close to Lakeside qualification if he does play enough events.

Two reasons generally why children are home schooled:

- the parents are hippies
- the child is a little shit who has more than likely already been booted out the mainstream school system

Hmm i wonder which one of the two this one is likely to be? A proper puzzler.

Having seen the video of the father's behaviour at the presentation of the Open that he won, he didn't strike me as a hippy, or a teacher for that matter.

Well that settles that one then.

Does sound like all eggs are being put in one basket which is rather dangerous. Plenty of names on the roll of honour of the Winmau Masters Youth title for example who never did anything substantial in the game ever.

If I was a gambling man I'd say the kid will be a millionaire by the time he's 21 so not getting A's & B's isn't going to ruin his life a don't think

Assuming he keeps at it. I refer you to the list of Masters Youth winners i mentioned a bit ago, i assume Dennis Beisser and Craig Clancy won multiple TV titles?

Wait til he discovers women and alcohol.

See how focussed he remains on darts.

Mentioned this before. Add drugs in there as well, lets not pretend it doesnt happen in darts.

Also add in potential loathing of parents, puberty etc....

This is the problem.
Kids thinking they're all going to be famous for some reason, be it sport or reality TV.

So getting qualifications ceases to matter. Despite the face that only 0.001% will actually get even a tiny slice of fame.

The amount of hate/jealousy for a 13 year old on here is pathetic. Let him be kid FFS he obviously enjoys his darts and comes across well already in interviews. Once again I will also say why people feel that darts players must be robots in stage is beyond me. At the end of the day it’s an entertainment business let them have character and play in the way that brings the best out of their own game.

Good luck to Leighton be great if he did make it to men’s Lakeside then and nobody their would want to draw him.

Where is it hate or jealously? Surely its just a bit of realism. Go and look at the list of youth Masters winners. Most vanished without trace.

Im not debating that. Its the people slating him or his parents decisions when its none of their business and they dont actually know the details. He is a young kid let him be one without debating details or making snidy comments about him or his parents. I have no problem with people talking about his actual darts or discussing how he will develop.

Given his fathers actions at that darts event last year where he acted like a total prick....
