Birthday boy James Wade was one of seven stars to secure double qualification success for European Tour events Five and Six at the UK Qualifiers in Barnsley.

Joining Wade in the double success for the European Darts Grand Prix in Sindelfingen and the Dutch Darts Masters in Zwolle were Kyle Anderson, Stephen Bunting, Adrian Lewis, Ricky Evans, Jamie Lewis and Steve Lennon.

Former Premier League champion Wade, who turned 35 on Friday, kicked off his qualification for the European Darts Grand Prix in Sindelfingen with victory over former Lakeside Champion Mark Webster 6-3.

He then followed this by beating 2005 World Championship finalist Mark Dudbridge to qualify.

In Qualifier six, Wade saw off Jamie Caven 6-4, before a comfortable 6-3 win over Aden Kirk.

Stephen Bunting landed a nine-dart leg on his way to a double qualification.

Beating Scott Taylor and Ryan Joyce to qualify in the first event, he then beat Raymond van Barneveld before his moment of perfection came in a 6-0 whitewash of Lee Evans to secure his place in Zwolle

It was a welcome double success for two-time World Champion Lewis as he looks to regain his best form.

He started by beating Mick McGowan 6-3, before a last-leg deciding victory over Aden Kirk to qualify for Sindelfingen.

In the second qualifier he followed a similar pattern by beating Brendan Dolan 6-3, followed by a 6-5 win against Peter Jacques.

Steve Lennon was made to work hard for his ET5 qualification as he came through two last leg deciders against Josh Payne and Terry Jenkins.

He made it look at lot easier in event six as he whitewashed Gary Eastwood before beating Joe Murnan.

Young Canadian Dawson Murschell qualified for the first European Tour event of his career in event five, whilst Jenkins will be back on the Euro Tour stage in Zwolle.
