James drew 6-6 with Stephen Bunting in Birmingham last night but a point wasn’t enough for either player in the end as other results didn’t go the right way.

James started well by taking the opening leg the pair then traded leg, James broke the Bunting throw for the first time in leg 5 but the former world champion broke straight back. Both were then very strong on their own throws as the legs kept going with throw as James finished 62 to lead lead 6-5 and guarantee a point but then missed 3 darts to win allowing Stephen the chance to checkout 120 to grab a point which he took.

 

After james thanked his sponsors for their continued  support this season and paid a big thank you to the crowed and his fan on social media for all the messages of support in the build up to the game #TeamWade

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.
