DARTS: Swindon thrower Smith grabs £1k at Players Championship
SWINDON’S Dennis Smith enjoyed an impressive run at the Players Championship in Barnsley as he picked up significant prize money yesterday.
The 44-year-old managed to reach round four at the Metrodome yesterday afternoon which was good enough for him to add £1,000 to his order of merit total, and take another major step towards December’s World Championship.
He eventually fell 6-2 to Joe Cullen, but previously managed to beat Ian Moss, Kim Huybrechts and Darryl Gurney during a productive afternoon in Yorkshire.
Smith also picked up prize money the previous day with a victory over Kevin McDine which earned him £250 although he eventually lost to Peter Wright.
After missing out on day one Mark Cox won £250 yesterday by beating Michael Mansell to reach round two before losing to Andy Hamilton, and Chris Aubrey also picked up prize money on Saturday as he beat Mark Walsh before losing to Cullen.
Johnny Haines failed to pick up money on either day.
