DAVE Chisnall reached the semi-final of the PDC’s latest Players Championship event on Sunday.

The Morecambe ace lost out 6-3 to Scot Gary Anderson at the Citywest Hotel to walk away with £2,000 in prize money.

Chisnall’s run to the last four included wins over former World Champions Dennis Priestley and Mark Webster and a 6-4 quarter-final defeat of Kim Huybrechts, who missed double 12 for a nine-darter in the contest.

Robert Thornton was the eventual winner on Sunday.

Michael van Gerwen won Saturday’s event in which Chisnall reached the third round before being knocked out 6-4 by Andy Jenkins.

The Morecambe darter begins his World Grand Prix campaign, tonight, Monday, against Dean Winstanley, in an event also at the Citywest Hotel, Dublin.
