Luke Littler threw a nine-darter to mark a dream start to life on the PDC ProTour on his Players Championship debut in Wigan.
The 17-year-old sensation had beaten Jim Williams and Luke Woodhouse in the first two rounds to set up a meeting with Michele Turetta.
Little raced into a 5-1 lead against the first ever Italian Tour Card holder having broke his opponent in the third.
He then managed to finish off Turetta, whose girlfriend is female darts star Fallon Sherrock, in brilliant style by throwing a 141 finish to advance to the next round.
It was Littler’s second nine-darter of the year having also managed the feat against Nathan Aspinall in the opening round of the Bahrain Darts Masters, which he won last month.
Littler went close to getting yet another nine-darter in the next round against Cameron Menzies but just missed D12.
