OWEN Bryceland took a huge step toward qualifying for the JDC Advanced Tour in 2025 by winning back-to-back events on the Foundation Tour in Coventry at the weekend.

The ten-year-old from Cumbernauld beat his compatriot and overall ranking leader Mitchell Lawrie 5-1 in the Event 11 final before seeing off England’s Jack Howarth – a double event winner himself on Saturday – in a 5-4 thriller in the Event 12 decider.

Bryceland kicked off Sunday’s action with Event 11 success, winning through a last-leg decider against Drake Porter in the last eight, before dispatching Arthur Allston and Lawrie to claim the spoils.

The Scot then completed a memorable double by beating Howarth 5-4 in the Event 12 final, denying the Englishman what would have been a fifth title on this year’s Tour.

Howarth fought back from 4-2 down to force a decider, but Bryceland – who only took up darts two years ago – wrapped up victory with a nerveless 104 checkout.

The talented youngster also hit the Foundation Tour’s highest ever average of 104.86 in his last-16 win over Joshua Machin, to cap off a superb weekend in the West Midlands.

17-year-old Howarth was the dominant force in Events 9-10 on Saturday, overcoming Cori Wiltshire and Lawrie respectively to cement second spot on the Order of Merit.

Lawrie leads the way on 49 points with eight events to play, two points ahead of Howarth on 47, with Bryceland further back on 34, 15 points clear of fifth-placed Ethan Pulham in the battle to qualify for next year’s Advanced Tour.
