James Wilson completes switch to PDC Tour

Former World Masters winner James Wilson secures his PDC Tour Card on day three of Qualifying School in Wigan.

James Wilson will compete on the PDC Tour next year after winning his PDC Tour Card on day three of Qualifying School in Wigan.

The 42-year-old, who was number one seed at Lakeside earlier this month, narrowly missed out on qualification on Wednesday, but the Yorkshire thrower made no mistake at the third time of asking.

After beating European duo Ryan de Vreede and Bernd Roith, Wilson sealed his passage onto the PDC Tour with a comfortable success over Nathan Aspinall.

Steve West and Steve Douglas, who has also previously featured in the BDO, ensured a return to the circuit by beating Tim Martin and Jermaine Wattimena in their deciding matches.

The final qualifier was Jason Wilson, who will be competing on the PDC Tour for the first time after seeing off Canada's Ken MacNeil.

Last-eight results: Steve Douglas 5-4 Jermaine Wattimena, Steve West 5-2 Tim Martin, James Wilson 5-2 Nathan Aspinall, Jason Wilson 5-2 Kenny MacNeil
