Angus Darts Academy player Craig Johnston from Arbroath sits nicely on top of the Scottish Youth Darts Rankings following his success at the weekend.

Fourteen players from Angus Darts Academy travelled to Aberdeen for the Granite City Youth Open 2014.

Craig (16) made his way through the field playing some superb darts all day to reach the final.

In the final Craig lined up against his Scottish team-mate and local favourite Bradley Weston from Grampian.

It was a very close final but Craig edged it to win 3-2 with a 92 checkout in the decidisive leg to be crowned champion and pick up the £120 prize pot and trophy, but most important was the Title of Granite City Youth Open 2014 Champion

The win also moved Craig 25 points clear at the top of the Scottish under-18s ranking table.
