Five players enjoyed a European Tour qualifying double on Friday in Barnsley.

PETER WRIGHT completed a hat-trick of PDC titles in less than a week at Players Championship 20 in Barnsley on Wednesday. 

After becoming the 2019 German Darts Master in Cologne on Sunday, Peter Wright continued his impressive form in the mid-week Players Championship double-header, with six consecutive ton-plus averages in Wednesday’s event. 

The conclusion to Players Championship 20 saw Wright dominate Joe Cullen in the final, averaging 105.3 and winning 8-1 against a Cullen who had been impressive all day, defeating the likes of Gerwyn Price and Adrian Lewis on his route to the final.

"I wanted to up my 101 average from yesterday and I know Joe is warming up for the Matchplay so I had to be at my best." said Wright, who has now added a 25th PDC title to his collection.

"The change in my darts is making things a lot easier. If the first dart goes in the treble 20 and I don't follow it with the other two, I'm disappointed.

"Winning three titles in five days is definitely a confidence boost going into the World Matchplay and it should be a great tournament."

The final saw Wright reel off five consecutive legs, before Cullen finally got on the board with a hold of throw in the sixth leg.

From there, Wright wasn't letting Cullen back into the match, continuing his incredible accuracy on doubles with a huge 146 checkout to make it 7-1.

It was then routine procedure for Peter Wright who had barely missed a dart at tops all day, to take out double 20 in the winning leg to swoop his third PDC title in five days and seal the £10,000 top prize. 

Despite being on the receiving end of a dominant Peter Wright display, it was still a promising day for Joe Cullen leading into the World Matchplay, after he reached his first Pro Tour final in just over two years. 

Elsewhere, Adrian Gray reached his first Pro Tour Semi-Final since 2012 but was beaten by eventual winner Wright 7-2.
