Alan Norris won his third PDC ranking title with a 6-1 victory over Peter Jacques in the final of Players Championship One.
Norris picked up the £10,000 top prize in the first of the PDC’s 22 Players Championship tournaments which will be held this year, as 128 players competed in Barnsley on Saturday.
Mendham’s Peter Wright and Ipswich’s Mervyn King went out at the fourth round stage, to Kyle Anderson and James Wade respectively, while Ipswich’s Steve Burton and Rendlesham’s Ryan Meikle both made it through to the third round.
Norris’ previous PDC titles had come at a Players Championship in Dublin and a European Tour event in Germany, but he enjoyed success on UK soil for the first time as he saw off Jacques in the decider.
Sunday sees a second £75,000 Players Championship held at the Barnsley Metrodome, with action from two boards streamed throughout the event at www.livepdc.tv
