PDC Development Tour 5-10 entries: Meikle headlines field as Germany’s Kurz doesn’t feature

After a prolonged hiatus exceeding the six-month mark, PDC Development Tour darts returns this weekend at the Barnsley Metrodome in South Yorkshire.

The Development Tour caters for younger players, ranging from 16 to 24 in terms of age and provides qualification for the World Youth Championship.

PDC tour card holder Ryan Meikle headlines the field as the current number one seed after winning a brace of titles during the last Development Tour outing in early March.

Former world youth finalist Berry van Peer, who also reigned victorious earlier this year in Germany, joins Meikle in Barnsley.

Reigning junior world champion Keane Barry makes the trip across the pond from Ireland, while world youth finalist Adam Gawlas has made the journey from the Czech Republic.

Dom Taylor, who reached three semi-finals in four events earlier this year, appears once again, as does former event winner Jarred Cole and Welshman Lewy Williams.

PDC tour card holders Martin Schindler, Ted Evetts, Callan Rydz, Geert Nentjes, Harry Ward, Niels Zonneveld, William Borland and Bradley Brooks also feature.

Aside from the aforementioned Gawlas, a number of additional players, including both Sebastian Bialeki and Roman Benecky, have made the journey from Eastern Europe.

Gibraltarians Justin Hewitt and Craig Galliano are also involved, as well as Hugo Leung and Lee Lok Yin – who have both travelled across the world from Hong Kong.

As well as various international players, a number of female throwers will also head to Barnsley. Josie Paterson, daughter of former World Masters champion Lorraine Winstanley, features alongside reigning girls world master Katie Sheldon.

Two-time World Championship qualifier Nico Kurz has opted out of the six events and will instead attempt to qualify for the German Darts Championship in his home country.

The PDC Development Tour recommences on Friday morning at the Barnsley Metrodome, with the first of six successive £10,000 events taking place.
