James Wilson and Jose Justicia secured Tour Cards on Day One of the Final Stage of 2022 PDC Qualifying School in Milton Keynes and Niedernhausen on Wednesday.

Wilson, who was relegated from the tour at the end of last season, clinched an immediate return as he thrashed Cameron Menzies 6-1 in the final of UK Event One.

The Yorkshireman, however, had to survive missed match darts in a deciding-leg victory over Kevin Burness, and produced an incredible 170 checkout in the deciding leg of his Semi-Final against George Killington.

“I feel fantastic – I’ve played in the Worlds in the first round, and failed to keep my card. I knew I had to come here, kick on and things went really well,” said Wilson.

“I just had to keep focused all day and I’m delighted I have done it. With Covid, I couldn’t defend my money on the European Tour and fell down the rankings, as well as injuries hampering me.

“Here it is really hard work, but after competing at the World Championship I felt confident I could do it.”

“I turn 50 next month, so I’m coming for the older ones like Peter Wright and Gary Anderson to get my slice of the pie before I retire.”

Wilson began the day with a 6-1 victory over Shaun Griffiths and whitewashed Lewis Dare before overcoming Shaun Wilkinson 6-3.

The former BDO number one then saw off Gary Blades 6-2 to reach the Quarter-Finals, before narrow 6-5 wins over Burness and Killington to reach the final.

Menzies kick-started his run to the final with a 6-2 win over Simon Stevenson, before a 6-5 success over Darren Johnson.

The Scotsman then blew away Hong Kong’s Kai Fan Leung and Jordan Brooks, and followed up with a 6-2 win over Lee Budgen and a 6-3 defeat of former World Champion Richie Burnett.

Elsewhere in Milton Keynes, Josh Payne landed a nine-darter in the deciding leg of his Second Round victory over Sean Fisher, although he subsequently lost out to Burness in the Last 32.

Four-time Women’s World Champion Lisa Ashton reached the Last 32 with wins over Nick Fullwell and Josh McCarthy before going down to recent Tour Card holder Gary Blades.

Fallon Sherrock suffered a First Round exit at the hands of America’s Danny Lauby – who averaged 97.2 in a clinical 6-1 victory and went on to reach the Last 16.

In European Q School, Spain’s Justicia produced a brilliant performance in the final as he whitewashed Mario Vandenbogaerde 6-0 to secure his PDC Tour Card.

The Spaniard averaged 104.8 in the final – the highest average of the day across both Europe and the UK – as he ensured his return to the professional circuit.

His run to the final started with a 6-0 demolition of Germany’s Frank Peters before denying compatriot Jesus Noguera 6-4 in the Second Round and thrashing Dragutin Horvat 6-0.

This was then followed by a trio of victories over Dutch opposition as he defeated Derk Telnekes 6-1, Danny Jansen 6-2 and Damian Mol 6-3 to secure his place in the final.

Vandenbogaerde’s run to the final started with a 6-1 win over fellow Belgian Patrick Bulen, before beating Germany’s Stephan Griese 6-2 and France’s Thibault Tricole 6-3.

He then saw off Radek Szaganski 6-4 to reach the Quarter-Finals – where he progressed with a commanding 6-1 win over Ricardo Piertreczko.

The former BDO star then dispatched Denmark’s Vladimir Andersen before falling to defeat to Justicia in the final, putting himself in a strong position to secure a Tour Card from the European Qualifying School Order of Merit.

The second of four consecutive days of action from 2022 PDC Qualifying School takes place on Thursday with with two more automatic Tour Cards available.
