Lewis, Wade, Taylor, Part, Whitlock, Hamilton, Thornton & Kellet Reach UK Masters Quarter-Finals

Adrian Lewis and James Wade will clash in the last 8 of the £100,000 UK Masters in Minehead. World number two Lewis raced to a 6-1 win over Mark Webster in their third round contest at the Butlins Resort in this afternoon’s session, hitting six 180s as he continued his return to form in style.

UK MastersHe will now meet seven-time major winner Wade when the European Tour Event concludes this evening, with the quarter-finals, semi-finals and final to be held as the battle for the  UK Masters title and £20,000 prize culminates.

Wade’s resurgent Premier League form continued as he defeated Michael van Gerwen 6-4 in their third round clash, sharing eight 180’s with the Dutchman, who hit back from 5-2 down to pull back to within a leg before the left-hander sealed the win.

Phil Taylor, who won last year’s Cash Converters Players Championship Finals at the same venue, extended his winning run on the Minehead stage to eight games as he came from 4-2 down to defeat Richie Burnett in a deciding leg.

Taylor will now play Andy Hamilton in the quarter-finals, after the Stoke star knocked out Raymond van Barneveld 6-3 in their third round clash, notching up only his second ever career victory over the Dutchman.

Simon Whitlock averaged over 100 in a 6-2 win over Ronnie Baxter to set up his quarter-final meeting with three-time World Champion John Part, who came back from 5-2 down to defeat Mensur Suljovic 6-5.

UK Open champion Robert Thornton and Cheshire’s Stuart Kellett were also 6-5 winners in their respective last 16 clashes with Arron Monk and Dave Chisnall.

Thornton had missed five match darts as Monk reeled him after falling 5-3 behind to force a deciding leg, but the former World Youth Champion missed one dart to snatch victory allowing the Scot to progress.
