Smith Wins German Darts Trophy

ANDY SMITH picked up his first Players Championship victory since 2007 with a 6-5 win over Colin Lloyd in the final of Saturday^s German Darts Trophy.

Smith had not picked up a tournament win since October 2007 in Scotland, but hit a nine-darter in ending that run in Dinslaken.

The Studley-based star achieved the perfect leg in his quarter-final victory against Mark Walsh, having hit a ten-darter to level after being 3-0 down before landing a perfect leg later in the match to earn a £400 bonus.

Smith overcame Wim Mink and Louis Blundell in the early rounds, edged out Mervyn King 6-5 in the last 32 and then defeated Jelle Klaasen 6-4 to reach the quarters.

Following his deciding leg win over Walsh, Smith then knocked out Bradford youngster Joe Cullen 6-3 in the semis and edged out Lloyd in a tight final.

Lloyd^s run featured wins over Mick McGowan, Braulio Roncero, Andy Hamilton, Steve Beaton and Wayne Jones to reach his fourth final of the year.

Cullen^s run follows his recent decision to leave his job as a postman to become a full-time professional, and was his best-ever on the PDC Pro Tour.

The 19-year-old picked up wins over Mark Dudbridge, Tony Eccles, Alan Tabern and Vincent van der Voort in making the last four, and led Smith 3-2 before the eventual champion took the final four legs without reply.

Jones^ semi-final appearance was his fifth of 2009, while Steve Beaton reached the last eight for the fourth successive PDC Pro Tour event.
