Ally Pally Young Guns
A new generation of talented throwers will grace this year's World Darts Championship, live on Sky Sports between December 15-January 2. But who are the young guns?

Chris Dobey
The 26-year-old prodigy has been shown the ropes by two-time world champion Gary Anderson, so should know what he's doing.

"He'll be something else in the future," Anderson told Sky Sports. "He's got his head switched on, he just wants to play darts, and if he gets beat he doesn't get upset about it. He goes onto the next tournament and I think that's fantastic."

World No 48 Dobey announced himself at the recent Grand Slam of Darts, beating Adrian Lewis and BDO top dog Scott Mitchell. He then won a classic last leg shoot-out against Jamie Hughes before eventually bowing out to James Wade.

Benito van de Pas
The latest sparkling talent to emerge from the darts factory in the Netherlands. We mentioned that Dobey is good, but Van de Pas beat him at the Grand Slam.

The 23-year-old thundered through the group phase of the Wolverhampton competition, but edging Dobey was the least of his achievements. He also dished out a pair of beatings to Lewis and Mitchell.

This year, world No 15 Van de Pas won his first Players Championship in Barnsley but, more significantly, he toppled Michael van Gerwen in the final.

Corey Cadby
The reigning World Youth champion should have plenty of eyes watching his progress at the upcoming World Championships where he will graduate to play alongside the big boys.

The 21-year-old from Australia shot into public reckoning last summer, with a stunning upset of Phil 'The Power' Taylor in his home country at the World Series of Darts.

More impressively, Cadby had been soundly beaten by Taylor just a week prior so has immediately demonstrated impressive mental resolve that will serve him well in the years to come.

Max Hopp
The World Youth champion of 2015, Hopp has since proved that he is no flash in the pan with some credible performances in the big leagues.

The German was unfortunate to bow out during the Grand Slam group stages - losing to Van Gerwen was expected, but defeat by Brendan Dolan meant an impressive win over Martin 'Wolfie' Adams counted for nothing.

Notably, Hopp has previous at Ally Pally - two years ago, as a teenager, he eliminated 10th seed Mervyn King.
