Lisa Ashton is continuing her bid for a PDC Tour Card in fine style. The ‘Lancashire Rose‘ has reached the last 4 stage of her Q School section, following a nailbiter of a win over former tour card holder Peter Jacques, and needs just one more win to claim her card direct.
Combined with her solid run on the opening day, things are looking very good indeed for the 49 year old. Should her performances remain at this level it is likely she will be the first female player to earn a place on the PDC Pro Tour via the cooperative route.
dartsworld.com columnist JR Lott recently selected Ashton as one of the players of the darting decade. He made the case for her performances, in both Ladies and open fields, have been the most important of any lady player.
It seems Ashton is determined to re-enforce that this week!
Update: Lisa was defeated 5-4 by Kai Fan Leung in the final match.
