There will be a new name on the UK Open trophy in 2024, as Masters champion Stephen Bunting ended the hopes of 2017 winner Peter Wright in a dramatic last 16 sshowdown.

Saturday’s afternoon session saw a host of big names exit in Minehead, with reigning champion Andrew Gilding condemned to a chastening 10-1 defeat to Wright on Stage Two.

The survivors include expected names such as Warribton Wunderkind Luke Littler and World Champion Luke Humphries but a third ‘Luke’ has also made the last 8, Martin Lukeman shocked Gary Anderson to stake his place.

The draw for the quarter-finals was made on the Main Stage following Saturday evening’s action, with Bunting pitted against World Champion Humphries for a place in the semi-finals.

Littler will lock horns with Heta, Cross takes on Evans, while Van den Bergh and Lukeman also go head-to-head.

The draw for the semi-finals will be made on the Main Stage following the quarter-finals, as the tournament concludes during a blockbuster evening session.

Sunday’s matches will be broadcast live on ITV4 for UK viewers, through the PDC’s international broadcast partners, including DAZN and Viaplay, and on PDCTV for Rest of the World Subscribers.
