The following article about Jamie Lewis winning the British Junior Open was published in a local Cardigan newspaper.
Eleven-year-old Cardigan darts whiz kid Jamie Lewis enhanced his burgeoning reputation by becoming British Junior Champion in the face of stiff opposition.
And on Saturday, hot on the heels of his victory at Great Yarmouth, the Cardigan schoolboy sensationally reached the semi-final stage of the Fishguard Open, which attracted senior Welsh internationals and county players.
Proudly wearing a Welsh shirt for the junior tournament Jamie won all his games 2-0 leading up to the final, his victims including last year’s kingpin Jason Askew.
In the 301 best of three final against fancied Richie Evans from the West Midlands the Cardigan darter took the first leg in 10 darts, but his opponent showed genuine class in achieving a seven darter in the second leg (140, 125, double 18).
Jamie kept his nerve in the final leg, finishing in 10 darts to the delight of his parents Mark and Helen Lewis and a sprinkling of Welsh supporters, who included former world champion Richie Burnett. In the Fishguard competition Jamie scored 180 on four occasions.
