Parry Secures Maiden Victory

March 24 2013

KURT PARRY secured his maiden PDC Unicorn Challenge Tour title on Sunday at the Barnsley Metrodome, which culminated in a 4-1 victory over Essex’ Daniel Day in the decider.

Parry, who hit a superb nine-dart finish in Friday’s PDC Unicorn World Youth Championship, produced a strong display to reach his first final on the Challenge Tour.

Parry disposed of James Young, James Nener and Sean McArdle without dropping a leg before overcoming Darren Beveridge with a tight 4-3 win to reach the last 16.

The 19-year-old Welshman then romped through to the final thanks to victories over Ryan Murray, Harry Miles and Shaun Littler, dropping just one leg in the process.

Parry continued his superb form of the day in the decider as he defeated Daniel Day 4-1 to secure his PDC Challenge Tour title, and with it the winners prize of £500.

Daniel Day, who reached the semi-finals of the first yesterday’s two events, started his run to the final with victories over Matthew Dicken and Marcellino Romeijn.

The 24-year-old from Essex recorded a fine 4-1 victory over Ricky Evans before progressing to the last eight with wins over Nick Paenen and Reece Robinson.

Day overcame Adam Hunt with a narrow 4-3 quarter-final and then recorded his third whitewash victory of the day over Shaun Littler.

That put Day into his first ever PDC Unicorn Challenge Tour Final before having to settle for the runners-up cheque of £300, after defeat to Parry in the decider.

Rowby John Rodriguez, who secured a total of £800 in prize money for his efforts on Saturday, lost at the 32 stage to Cheshire’s Stuart Bousfield, who avenged his semi-final defeat to the Austrian, in the first of Saturday’s two events.

Bousfield went on to reach the quarter-finals before losing narrowly to Lincolnshire’s Jason Marriott, who fell victim to Parry in the last four.

Josh Payne, who secured his first Challenge Tour title after claiming the second tournament of yesterday’s double-header, suffered a first round exit at the hands of James Nener.

The next three events of this year’s PDC Unicorn Challenge Tour will take place in Wigan, at the Robin Park Tennis Centre, during the weekend of 20-21 April, where £3,000 in prize money will be on offer in each event.
