Maguire racked up an impressive score of 171 including bagging himself one treble 20 in the process.

But despite the surprisingly strong showing, Maguire was quickly put in his place by teen sensation Littler.

Luke The Nuke had to try and beat Maguire’s score in as few darts as possible and the Bahrain Masters champ made it look easy.

The 17-year-old banged all three of his darts into the treble 20 and earned himself a 180 – ending the match as quick as he possibly could.
