THE draw for the opening night of the Speedy Services UK Open on Thursday June 7 has been made, with reigning champion James Wade facing one of four qualifiers as he begins the defence of his title in the Second Round.

The £250,000 tournament, nicknamed ^The FA Cup of Darts^ due to the open draw format which can see leading players drawn together at any stage, will feature a mixture of the top professionals alongside 64 amateur qualifiers from June 7-10 in Bolton.

The opening night sees the early rounds played, featuring the Speedy Qualifiers and Rileys Qualifiers playing alongside the professionals ranked from 33-114 in the UK Open Order of Merit following eight qualifying events.

PDC newcomer Ted Hankey will make his UK Open debut in the Preliminary Round against Leeds-based Speedy Qualifier Danny Dutson, with the winner then facing Rileys Qualifier Gus Santana or Andy Jenkins in the First Round - and the player who triumphs from that quartet will play Mervyn King in the Second Round!

Wade, who won the UK Open for a second time last year, enters in the Second Round and will play either Mark Lawrence, Jamie Robinson, Glen Durrant or the Rileys Bolton Qualifier.

Former World Champion Steve Beaton drew Speedy Qualifier Jon Jukes in the Preliminary Round, with Steve Brown facing Michael Barnard, Adrian Gray meeting Steve Evans, Irish ace Connie Finnan playing Scottish qualifier Andy Murray and former World Masters winner Tony West playing the Rileys Stevenage Qualifier.

High-profile First Round games include Paul Nicholson - who knocked out Gary Anderson and Phil Taylor in reaching last year^s quarter-finals - playing the Rileys Basildon Qualifier or Andy Melling and 2003 UK Open finalist Shayne Burgess against Dave Ladley or Liam Kelly.

Mark Webster, a semi-finalist 12 months ago, plays Swindon^s Johnny Haines in the Second Round, while South Africa^s Devon Petersen takes on Andrew Gilding, who has impressed since winning a Tour Card this year.

Co Stompe will take on Alan Tabern, Spain^s Antonio Alcinas drew Mark Hylton, James Richardson plays Jim Walker and Mareno Michels plays Shaun Griffiths, while Ronnie Baxter will play either Jon Bott, Josh Jones -or Mark Spencer.

The remaining Rileys Qualifiers are being staged over the next two weekends in Rileys Darts Zones around the UK as players battle to win the final places reserved for amateur qualifiers in the event.

All games on the opening night will be the best of seven legs. The Third Round draw will be made at the conclusion of the Second Round on Thursday night.
