Ian White will head to the Players Championship Finals next month as the No.1 seed.

Despite a disappointing last weekend of the PC season in Barnsley, the Unicorn man has held onto top spot and will play Scott Taylor in the first round in Minehead.

Gary Anderson is the 2nd seed and he will take on Alan Tabern in that 1st Round. The Unicorn man withdrew from PC 22 - the last event of the year - and the tournament was won again by Krzysztof Ratajski who beat Adrian Lewis 6-4 in the final.

The Pole, who beat Team Unicorn’s Chris Dobey on Saturday, joins a select band of double weekend winners!

Kyle Anderson was the best Unicorn performer at Barnsley in Sunday. He reached the semi-finals. The Aussie averaged a staggering 113 in his superb 6-4 quarter-final win over Mensur Suljovic, but he lost by the same score to Ratajski in those semi’s.

And would you believe that Kyle is one of seven Team Unicorn players in one quarter of the draw for Minehead! He plays Simon Whitlock and could end up facing Gary Anderson in round two.

Also in that section of the draw Kim Huybrechts plays Steve Beaton, Joe Cullen takes on John Henderson, Michael Smith faces Vincent van der Voort and there’s a cracking all Unicorn clash between Jeffrey de Zwaan and Jelle Klaasen.

On Sunday in Barnsley, Smith and James Wade both made it through to the quarter-finals. Smith went down 6-4 to Ratajski and Wade lost by the same score to Lewis.

So what about the rest of Team Unicorn in that 1st Round draw for the Players Championship Finals?

Well, Wade will meet Ross Smith, Dobey plays Ron Meulenkamp, Madars Razma faces Mickey Mansell and Adam Hunt has been handed a dream draw against Adrian Lewis.

Keegan Brown has a really tough opener against Mensur Suljovic, while Dimitri van den Bergh plays James Wilson.


Meanwhile it was a terrific weekend for Team Unicorn new boy Mark McGeeney. He completed a clean sweep of the big prizes in Turkey......he won the Turkish Classic beating Scott Mitchell in the final, then came success in the Turkish Open with victory over Wesley Harms and McGeeney completed the hat-trick as he teamed up with Mitchell to win the Pairs title.
