Template - Date: James Barton passes away.
The Bradford-based thrower has competed on the PDC circuit on and off for 15 years, including making four UK Open appearances between 2004-2009.
He had competed in the 2019 PDC Qualifying School without winning a Tour Card, and was in action at the recent PDC Unicorn Challenge Tour during May.
Barton has played in all eight Challenge Tours in 2019 and was a quarter-finalist in Event Seven last month, before losing out to Mark Walsh, securing his best finish in a PDC event in the process.
