Daryl’s experienced management team MDA Promotions and MItchell Promotions have put their darts webmaster on the case, Krispy Brown, and this website is the proud home of the Northern Irish darts sensation, Daryl ‘Superchin’ Gurney.

Daryl impressed darts fans with his fantastic performances at his first PDC World championships, and then immediately won his PDC Tour Card at the tough qualifying school on day 2.   At his first PDC event, the UK Masters Euro Tour qualifying event in Crawley, he qualified for the £100,000 tournament at Minehead – winning through to the last 24 of a 100+ field of PDC professionals.

Now an established talent on the PDC tour, Daryl has already impressed with a number of scalps and TV tournament runs. 2015 was a real breakthrough year, and his form has continued into 2016.  Ranked 32nd in the world, with a semi-final appearance at the televised 2015 Players Championships, Daryl is now a recognised star of the sport of darts.

The year will continue with long weekends of UK Open qualifiers, the first of which starts 5th Feb.

2016 World Darts Championships

THE 2015/2016 William Hill World Darts Championship will be held from December 17-January 3 at London’s Alexandra Palace.

The sport’s biggest tournament sees 72 players competing for £1.5 million in prize money and the prestigious Sid Waddell Trophy across the festive period.  The preliminary and first rounds will be held before the Christmas break, with the second and third rounds being held from Boxing Day through to December 30.

Daryl helps kick off the tournament, playing on the first night, with the worlds eyes on him – it’s beamed out live across much of the globe, and on Sky Sports here in the UK.  He takes on the young welsh wizard Jamie Lewis, which is a VERY tough first round game for the Dude.

FANCY A BET?  CLICK HERE to see all the odds, game, tournament, and in play, with the sponsors, William Hill.  Free £25 bet for new sign-ups.

Round 1:  Daryl Gurney 3-1 Jamie Lewis

Daryl starts his world championship by racing away with the first set 3-0, and hitting 110 average!   Jamie gets back into the game in set 2, but Daryl wins the next two sets to win into round 2 after Christmas.  That’s a minimum of £15,000 won already – which is really going to help push the Dude up the rankings.

Round 2:  Daryl Gurney 1-4 Gary Anderson

Daryl Gurney Player Champs

THE 2015 Cash Converters Players Championship Finals takes place from November 27-29 at the Butlins Minehead Resort, and of course Daryl will be there, but the draw sees him play one of the big names in TV darts, and former finalist, Kim Huybrechts.

The £300,000 tournament features the top 32 players from the 2015 ProTour Order of Merit, based on prize money won in European Tour events, UK Open Qualifiers and Players Championships.

WATCH LIVE
ITV4 – UK, Setanta – Ireland, RTL7 – Netherlands, Sport1 – Germany (Sunday evening only), Fox Sports – Australia, Sky – New Zealand, OSN – Middle East & North Africa, PPTV – China, Nova – Czech Republic & Slovakia, www.LIVEPDC.TV for International Pass Subscribers

Round 1:  Daryl Gurney 6-2 Kim Huybrechts

Daryl puts in probably the performance of the day in beating Kim, throwing probably the best darts he’s thrown on TV, with a 101.38 average, and 2x180s.

Round 2:  Daryl Gurney 10-4 Gary Anderson

Daryl said he played rubbish, but he still beat the world champion!  What a night for the Dude!

Quarter Finals:  Daryl Gurney 10-5 Benito van de Pas

The Dude misses a load of doubles, but still wins fairly easily!  Into the semi-finals against the world number 1

Semi Final:   Daryl Gurney 2-11 Michael van Gerwen

Daryl saves his worst performance for the world champ, and MvG isn’t going to turn down the chance to put the boot in.  Not what Daryl or his fans wanted, but still it’s his first TV semi final, and great experience.
