Luke Littler has been offered job in Turkey if he doesn’t win World Championship final

Luke Littler has been offered job in Turkey if he doesn’t win World Championship final

The 16-year-old will come up against world number one Luke Humphries in Wednesday night's final at the Alexandra Palace.

Luke Littler has been offered a job as a 'Kebab Taste Tester' if he fails to beat Luke Humphries in tonight's World Darts Championship final, but he'll have to travel thousands of miles to make it happen.

The 16-year-old, from Runcorn, has become an overnight sensation following a string of dominant victories at this year's tournament in London.

He's beaten Christian Kist, Andrew Gilding, Matt Campbell, Raymond van Barneveld, Brendan Dolan and Rob Cross on his way to Wednesday's showpiece event against world number one Humphries.

But as well as his performances on the oche, we've got to know Luke on a personal level. The teenager has previously opened up about enjoying a pre-match kebab.

In fact, after his debut win over Kist, a delighted Littler proudly held aloft a £7.99 doner wrap from popular food chain German Doner Kebab.

Now, the youngster has been offered a job as a 'Top Kebab Taste Tester' by tour operator company On The Beach Group, who penned the following letter to Littler ahead of Wednesday's finale.


Dear Luke,

We've been watching you... Not in a weird way, but on TV; throwing darts and smashing the trebles more often than a night out on the Magaluf strip (hard luck on missing the Big Fish by the way.)

We're writing to you to, firstly, wish you luck in tonight's semi-final against Rob Cross (boo!) BUT, if you don't win, us lot here at On the Beach, the home of package holidays, have a proposition for you...

You may have heard that we've got more holidays to Turkey than you can shake a beach towel at. In fact, we're the Kings of Turkey, and we heard on the grapevine that you're the King of Kebabs.

So, if you don't win the World Darts Championship, we'd love to offer you a job in the home of kebabs: Turkey. Our offer consists of you becoming our 'Top Kebab Taste Tester' and yes, that is the official title.

We'll sort the whole thing, send you on holiday and take you to our top Turkish hotels - let someone else worry about flights and check-outs for once.

While you're over there, you'll get to try every hotels' kebab offering, sample their poolside dart boards and report back to us. A job almost as simple as hitting a 180. For you, anyway.

Look at it this way, it's a free holiday for as long as you want, travelling around doing the two things you love, throwing darts and eating kebabs. What more could you want?

Anyway, offer's there if you want it. Think about it...

Darts career? Or living the life in Turkey? I know which one I'd pick.

We await your reply.

So there we have it. Littler has been offered an all-expenses paid trip to Turkey, where he'll likely tuck into multiple kebabs. Not a bad trip, ey?
