There was more success for MODUS’ youth stars over the weekend, with James Hubbard and Arron Monk both winning PDC Unicorn Youth Tour titles in Barnsley.

2011 Under-21 World Champion Monk took victory in Saturday’s second event, beating Samuel Head 4-2 in the final.

Hubbard, who is the reigning World Youth Champion, won the twelfth event of the year when he whitewashed Sam Hill in Sunday’s final.

Hubbard, who heads to Blackpool next week to compete in the Betfair World Matchplay, defeated Josh Payne, Joshua Carter and Chris Aubrey, before victories over Matthew Dennant, Monk and Hill saw him claim his second Youth Tour triumph of 2012.

Monk remains top of the Youth Order of Merit after another successful weekend, in which he added £800 to his prize money for the year.

The Hampshire star has collected £3,025 so far, having won a third of the events that have taken place this year, with Hubbard £700 behind him in second place.

The weekend’s success means that MODUS’ youngsters have taken 8 wins out of 12 events in 2012, with four victories for Monk, two for Hubbard and one apiece for Aubrey and Adam Smith-Neale.

The next PDC Unicorn Youth Tour events will be held at the Moorways Centre in Derby on August 4 & 5, when three £3,000 tournaments will be held.
