Over 300 players will compete in the opening weekend of the 2020 PDC Unicorn Challenge Tour season.

Scott Mitchell and Robbie Collins picked up their first victories on the PDC circuit with triumphs on the opening day of the 2020 PDC Unicorn Challenge Tour season.

Collins, a Rileys Qualifier for the 2019 Ladbrokes UK Open who also competed on the Challenge Tour last year, took victory in Event One as he edged out Adam Huckvale 5-4 in the final.

Collins led 3-0 following a strong start in the decider before Huckvale claimed four of the next five as the game went to a ninth leg, but it was the 40-year-old from Lambeth who claimed the £2,000 top prize.

He was also taken to a deciding leg by Ray Marshall on the day, and saw off Australia's Gordon Mathers, Dutchman Danny van Trijp and England's Justin Hood during the latter stages of Event One.

Huckvale's defeat in the final denied him a second Challenge Tour title, following his previous victory in 2018, but he defeated Alan Norris amongst eight wins during the tournament.

Saturday's second event saw Mitchell scoop his first PDC title in style with a 5-1 defeat of Andrew Gilding in the final, winning the opening three legs without reply before closing out a dominant victory with a 13-dart leg.

The former Lakeside Champion ended Collins' bid for a daily double in the Last 64 with a 102 average in a 5-3 triumph, while he also whitewashed Cameron Menzies in the quarter-finals and overcame Eddie Lovely 5-2 in the semi-finals.

Gilding was condemned to defeat for a second time on the Challenge Tour, having also lost out in the Event Six decider a year ago, and his victories in the event included a 5-2 success against Huckvale in the Last 16.
