Lisa Ashton made history on Sunday becoming the first woman to win through Q-School and claim a Tour Card after another brilliant performance over four days from ‘The Lancashire Rose’.

Ashton spoke afterwards and sent a message to the rest of the Tour Card holders to be ready to play her and that she has more to come which she hopes to show when she starts playing on the PDC ProTour.

“I am so, so happy to finally get my Tour Card,” said Ashton.

“I was sat there all day with people trying to work out if I had qualified so I just said ‘tell me at the end, I can’t deal with the stress!

“So when I found out I’d done it, that was a great moment.

“I want to play all the tournaments I can. I’m going to have a damn good go at whoever I play, they need to be ready.

“To come through a field of over 500 men, I couldn’t be any happier.

“But I know I’ve got more in the tank and now I’m going to take my dreams wherever I can.”
