Lisa Ashton will join the PDC Tour for the first time after making history on Sunday by becoming the first female player to win a PDC Tour Card at Q-School.

Ashton said that it is even better knowing that she will face off against some of the best men in the world and that it will open up potentially even bigger opportunities.

“I am so proud of myself,” Ashton told Sky Sports News. “I couldn’t be more happy – this achievement is another level.

“To get the Tour Card and know I’m going to play against the top men in the world is another massive achievement for me.

“I know I’ve got to do the hard work and keep going but hopefully I can get more opportunities. It’s going to open a load more doors for me, more tournaments.

“I’m not just going to make the numbers up. I’m going to do the hard work and hopefully I can compete and give them a go.”
