Dave Chisnall reclaimed the David Ian Skoda Morecambe Darts Open title with victory at Morecambe Cricket Club on Sunday.

A high-class field travelled to the resort as a number of PDC players and a host of high-class darters from across the country took part.

One outstanding result came from Isle of Man raider Wayne Harrison who dumped PDC ace Andy “The Hammer” Hamilton out in the last 16 to claim a famous scalp.

However, the day ended with local favourite Chisnall defeating last year’s winner Mike Smith in a cracking final to pick up the £450 winners’ cheque.

The Morecambe ace is next in action at the Singapore Darts Masters which starts on Friday.

The eight-man tournament kicks off a triple-header of World Series of Darts events with the Perth Darts Masters and Sydney Darts Masters to follow later this month.

Chisnall has been drawn to face Phil Taylor with the quarter finals starting at 7.30pm on Friday local time, 12.30pm BST, at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.

The event will be broadcast on Sky 2, Channel 121, in the UK.

Elsewhere in the last eight, Peter Wright takes on James Wade, Simon Whitlock faces Raymond van Barneveld with Michael van Gerwen and Andy Hamilton going head-to-head.

All games the best are best of 19 legs, first to 10.

The prize pot will see the overall winner scoop £10,000, with the runner up earning £7,500 and the losing semi-finalists each taking away £5,000.
