MARK Webster has missed out on qualifying for the first PDC major of the year.

The Denbigh dartist failed to make it into the top-96 qualifiers for next month's Coral UK Open.

Following the conclusion of the six qualifiers for the UK Open, Webster found himself in 108th spot in the order of merit.

The top 96 players from the order of merit progress to compete in the TV finals at the Butlin's Minehead Resort from March 2-4.

Two-time UK Open champion Michael van Gerwen is the top seed, having won two of the UK Open qualifiers in Wigan.

Michael Smith, Gary Anderson, Corey Cadby and Krzysztof Ratajski also won UK Open Qualifiers to scoop a £10,000 title apiece, while reigning UK Open champion Peter Wright was a semi-finalist in four of the six events.

World champion Rob Cross had it all to do on the second weekend following three early exits, but reached two semi-finals and a final to seal his spot in Minehead.

Mark received byes in the first two rounds of last Friday's qualifier at the Robin Park Tennis Centre, in Wigan, but at the last-128 stage he was defeated 6-3 by Dave Ladley.

Two-time world champion Gary Anderson secured his place at the UK Open by defeating Jeffrey de Zwaan 6-2 in the final.

Turning to Saturday's event and there was a similar story for Webster.

Following a couple of byes to begin the day, Mark suffered a 6-4 loss at the hands of Ryan Meikle.

Australian Corey Cadby won his first senior PDC title with a brilliant comeback to defeat world champion Rob Cross 6-4 in the final.

Everything was on the line for Webster during Sunday's concluding qualifier and two wins would have been enough to see him climb into the top-96.

After two byes once again, Mark began his tilt at the title in good fashion with a 6-1 defeat of Stefan Nilles.

However, his run came to an end with a 6-4 defeat at the hands of last-64 opponent Chris Quantock.

Krzysztof Ratajski became the first Polish winner of a PDC event as he defeated Daryl Gurney 6-4 to win the event.
