AN EMERGING star in the sport, Josh picked up his first title in 2013 at a PDC Challenge Tour event.

In 2014 he qualified for the UK Open for the first time and lost 5–4 to Andy Boulton in the second round, before going on to finish second on the Youth Tour Order of Merit to earn a two-year PDC tour card which commenced in 2015.

Josh played in the 2016 World Matchplay and then received an invitation to play in the World Series of Darts Finals later that year.

The Kent thrower qualified for his first World Championship in the 2017 event through the Pro Tour Order of Merit, and later that year made the final of the World Youth Championship, where he was defeated by Dimitri van den Bergh.

Payne won his second ProTour title at Players Championship 12 in May 2018.
