It’s an 8th PDC title for Ian White.

The Unicorn man tasted victory for the first time in nearly two years in Milton Keynes on Sunday as he took the honours in Players Championship 6.

He won a thrilling final, edging out Dave Chisnall in a last leg shoot-out. It was a dominant day for White, as he dropped only 12 legs in six matches in his way to the final.

He started with a 6-3 win over Luke Woodhouse, then demolished Maik Langendorf 6-0, before back-to-back successes against Team Unicorn stablemates.

First there was a 6-3 victory over Keegan Brown, followed by a 6-1 win against James Wade in the last 16.

John Henderson (6-2) and Mervyn King (6-3) were dispatched in the quarter and semi-finals.

It was a terrific final.

White kept his cool and punished Chisnall for a series of missed chances. Chizzy blew five darts to win the opening leg and two more to make it 3-3 and the Unicorn man calmly went about his business.

He led 3-1 and 4-2 but back came Chisnall to win three straight legs. He then missed a dart at the bull to win 6-4 and White forced the decider and took it against the throw. ‘Diamond’ White won it with an impressive 14 darter.

A cheque for £10,000 and a long overdue victory for the 47-year-Old from Stoke.

The other Unicorn highlight saw Dimitri van den Bergh make the quarter-finals but he lost 6-3 to King.
