The final was a truly exceptional game going right down to the wire with Lindsay Haji-Ali winning by the slimmest of Margins, final score 7-6.
Both players missed vital pegs in the last game and Edward had his chances to clinch the title.
The game was played in great spirits and true sportsmanship was on display in the final from both players and indeed throughout the day by all players.
At a crucial part in the game Lindsay managed a peg of 161 which I believe gave him the confidence to come through with the win. It was great to see these 2 good mates tough it out together in the final.
BENITO VAN DE PAS claimed his third Players Championship win of 2016 in the year's final tournament in Barnsley on Saturday, defeating Dave Chisnall 6-1 in the final.
The Dutch youngster, 23, had claimed a previous PDC ProTour win at the Barnsley Metrodome in April before adding another £10,000 title in Coventry the following month, and completed a seasonal hat-trick with Saturday's Players Championship 20 success.
The number three seed negotiated his way into the last 16 for the loss of just seven legs in his early wins over Dimitri Van den Bergh, Ted Evetts and Robert Owen, before overcoming Jamie Lewis 6-3 to move into the quarter-finals.
NINE-DART hero Simon Whitlock won his second successive Players Championship title with a 6-4 defeat of Chris Dobey in Friday's £75,000 tournament in Barnsley.
Whitlock achieved perfection for the second time in a matter of weeks as he landed a nine-darter during his first round whitewash of Par Riihonen.
The Australian then went on to make the day even more memorable as he scooped the £10,000 first prize to follow up his victory in Dublin earlier this month.
ALAN NORRIS claimed his first European Tour title by defeating Jelle Klaasen 6-5 in the final of the HappyBet German Darts Championship in Hildesheim - securing a SINGHA Beer Grand Slam of Darts spot in the process.
The 44-year-old had won his maiden PDC title at a Players Championship last October, and picked up his second triumph 12 months later with a brilliant comeback win against Dutch ace Klaasen.
