Joshua Richardson following in father James' footsteps by securing PDC Tour Card: "It's been a dream so I'm really, really happy"

Joshua Richardson secured a PDC Tour Card for the next two years on the final day of Q-School. The Englishman lost to Dom Taylor in the final, but thanks to a third-place finish on the Q-School Order of Merit, he was still more than safe for a card.

Q-School didn't start so well for Richardson however. "The first two days I went out first round and yesterday I got three points, reached the quarter-finals so I had a lot to do today. But, I managed to get to the final and I'm absolutely over the moon."

The 25-year-old Englishman thus follows in the footsteps of his father James Richardson, who himself is a former Tour Card holder and famously defeated Raymond van Barneveld at the World Darts Championships. "First time doing it obviously but it's been a dream so I'm really, really happy."

Richardson, however, remains level-headed. "My manager has said I need to get fitter because in that final, I couldn't handle it. So yeah, first thing to do is get fit!"
