Daryl Gurney claimed his first floor title of the year at Players Championship 25 in Barnsley on Saturday.

World number three Gurney defeated Nathan Aspinall 8-5 in the final to end his wait for a Players Championship event win stretching back to April 2017.

Current holder of the Players Championship Finals title, Gurney produced a string of dominant displays throughout the day, winning all seven games by at least three legs.

"It feels too long [since last winning a Players Championship event], I often struggle and don't bring my 'A-game'," said Gurney, who won his first European Tour title in March.

"This week everything went great for me and I found something extra. I kicked in well with plenty of 180s to give myself opportunities which I took.

"These events are harder to win than a TV tournament; you can play an unbelievable game and then you're straight back into your next game just a few minutes later."

A keenly contested final began with eight consecutive holds of throw, including a 155 checkout from UK Open champion Aspinall, who was competing in his third ProTour final of the year.

Gurney, a runner-up at Players Championship Seven in March, cleaned up 45 to land the first break of the match in leg ten to go 6-4 in front.

The Northern Irishman then fired in his fifth and sixth 180s of the contest as he kept Aspinall at bay, before taking out 44 to seal the £10,000 top prize.

Gurney's day began with victories over Darren Webster, Steve Lennon and Mervyn King before seeing off Jelle Klaasen to reach the quarter-finals.

There, he defeated Peter Wright 6-2 before overcoming Ian White 7-4 to reach the final.

Elsewhere, Justin Pipe continued his resurgence with a fifth ProTour quarter-final of 2019, while Max Hopp made his third last eight appearance on the ProTour.
