MARK Webster has failed in his quest to qualify for the most lucrative tournament in darts.

Monday witnessed the final qualifier for the 2020 William Hill World Championship.

Three places were up for grabs in the PDPA tour card holder qualifier in Wigan.

Denbigh dartist Webster began his tilt in fine fashion via a 6-4 win over Jon Worsley.

In the next round, Webster missed match darts to claim victory and he was eventually edged out 6-5 by Tony Newell.

On the local scene, Deian Roberts was crowned the Geraint Williams Memorial Shield winner.

This adds to his growing reputation on the local darting scene.

In the fifth addition of the event, the Llandrillo man became the fifth different winner as 23 entries made it a decent evening of darting action at the Golden Lion, Llandyrnog.

Jamie Dowell, the competition's debut winner, was bundled out at the first hurdle by Carl Jones, whilst 2016 champion Nick Hailes lost a last-eight tussle to the impressive Glyn Lloyd.

Lloyd was to have a stellar competition as he continued his good form in the semi-finals by defeating three-time semi-finalist Joey Humphries 3-0.

Deian Roberts' path to the final saw him take out Dafydd Roberts, Iain Robertson and Carl Jones to reach the last-four, where he stopped Arwel Hughes' great evening of action with a tight 3-1 victory.

The final was a great match-up as veteran darter Lloyd pushed into a 2-1 lead, but Roberts took the final to a fifth leg when he clinched the fourth.

The decider was a nip-and-tuck affair as the young Gwynedd county star took out double eight with his last dart in hand to be crowned the 2019 champion.

The competition raised a total of £300 towards St Kentigern Hospice.
