Dave Chisnall enjoyed a strong run at the two Players Championship events in Barnsley at the weekend.

The Morecambe darts ace reached the semi-final on Saturday before his charge was ended at the last 16 stage at the Metrodome the following day.

In the opening event of the double header Chisnall defeat Michael van Gerwen 6-3 in the quarter-finals as he produced the performance of the day with an 111.5 average.

Chisnall however saw his tournament ended in the last four as he lost to Peter Wright by the same score.

Wright went on to lose 6-4 to Terry Jenkins in the final, the 52-year-old celebrating his birthday in style.

On Sunday Chisnall again lost to the losing finalist, this time going down 6-4 to Raymond van Barneveld in the last 16.

The Dutchman was beaten 6-4 by fellow countryman Jelle Klaasen in the final.

The Players Championship events continue in Dublin on Friday and Saturday before the World Grand Prix gets underway in the Irish capital on Sunday, October 4.

Chisnall will get an immediate chance for revenge against Wright as the pair meet in the first round.
