James was back on the main stage on Saturday afternoon as the machine  continued his bid to complete a hat-trick in the event with a fine 9-4 win over Nathan Aspinall, the youngster  shared the game’s opening eight legs, but paid for missing a dart at double seven to break Wade’s throw in the next as the left-hander edged 5-4 up on tops before hitting the same bed to break and lead 6-4.

In round four James was drawn against Andrew Gilding on stage 2, in the early legs James missed darts as doubles and this would prove costly has he trailed 4-1 at the break, Gilding came back after the break and raced into an 8 -3 lead but James should his class and fighting spirit and broke the Gilding throw and got the match back to 8-6 before Gilding held throw to knock James out of this years Uk Open, after James thanked the fans for their excellent support like normal.
