PDC Media Release - Scottish Darts Players Championship

ALEX ROY won his first title since March 2005 with a final-leg triumph over Denis Ovens in the Scottish Players Championship.

Royclaimed a dramatic victory at the Magnum Centre in Irvine to claim the £5,000 title - and a Players Championship qualifying place in the European Championship at the end of the month.


took the final^s first set before Ovens won four of the next five legs to lead 2-1 in the game.


won set four without reply, but an 11-darter saw Ovens lead in the deciding set.

Watford-based Roy levelled with a 101 finish to send the match all the way, and a brilliant 161 checkout earned him victory.

He had also come from behind to win his semi-final against Terry Jenkins, and defeated Vincent van der Voort, Felix McBrearty, Adrian Lewis, Carlos Rodrgiuez and Jason Clark on the day.

Ovens reached his third final of the year with a 3-1 win over Steve Maish in the semi-final, and narrow five-set wins over Wayne Jones, Dave Smith and Mark Dudbridge.

Maish^s semi-final appearance - his second in a month - also lifted his hopes of claiming European Championship qualification spot, as well as his hopes of winning a place in the World Darts Championship in December.

World number three James Wade, two-time World Champion Dennis Priestley and Colin Lloyd were all first round casualties, with the latter going down in a deciding leg to Ayshire^s local star Robert Thornton.


went on to lose to Andy Jenkins in the last 16, with Northern Ireland^s McBrearty, Liverpool^s Lee Palfreyman and Leeds^ Smith also going down in the fourth round.


^s Jones squandered a two-set lead in his quarter-final with Ovens, while Maish came from a set down to defeat Andy Jenkins.
