Welcome - Official Website of PDC Professional Daryl Gurney
Daryl’s experienced management team MDA Promotions and
MItchell Promotions have put their darts webmaster on the case,
JS Webs 180, 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 won his first Pro
Tour event in April 2017, and followed it up with an appearance in
the World Series. His stock was on the rise and in October 2017,
Superchin won his first TV major the World Grand Prix and has now
been selected for the 2018 Premier League.
MVG piles on the misery for Superchin
Daryl is still looking for his first win in the Unibet Premier League as he was defeated by world number one Michael van Gerwen at the Mercedes-Benz Arena in Berlin.
A record-breaking crowd of 12,000 fans witnessed the two-time World Champion race into a 6-1 lead before Superchin put a second leg on the board, before the Dutchman wrapped up the game 7-2 with an average of 104.
It leaves Daryl in ninth place in the table, with just two points so far, after the opening four weeks.
Daryl ‘Superchin’ Gurney is becoming the star his darts talent demanded, and to celebrate his new nickname, his management team have designed a new superhero darts shirt for him.
You can buy them (signed by Daryl himself) via his Merchandise page – in Red, Blue, Green, Pink and Silver, in Small to 7XL sizes.

Superchin almost repeated the feat in the second event, but lost out in the last 16 in a final leg decider, 5-6 to Ian White.
Day three was less eventful for Daryl however, as he lost out in his first match, 4-6 to Jeffrey de Zwaan.
First Premier League defeat for Superchin
Daryl found himself on the wrong end of a result for the first time in the Unibet Premier League, after losing out 4-7 to Michael Smith at the Motorpoint Arena in Cardiff.
Smith started the brighter, breaking the throw as Superchin trailed 0-3. But not being the type to lie down, the Northern Irishman broke back to level the match at 3-3.
At 4-4, however, Bully Boy once again surged to three consecutive legs to take the match and leave Daryl with just one point from his opening two matches.

Daryl still looking for first Premier League win
Daryl was unlucky not to secure his first victory in the Unibet Premier League as his opponent staged a valiant comeback at the Metro Radio Arena in Newcastle.
After taking the game by the scruff of the neck early doors, Superchin lead 3-0 and then 5-1 before Gerwyn Price fought back, taking the next three legs to leave the match in the balance at 5-4.
Daryl then edged back in front to guarantee the draw, but that was all he ended up coming away with as the next two legs both went the way of the Welshman, and the match ended 6-6.
Up and down weekend in Barnsley
Daryl had an up and down weekend in the first weekend of Players Championship events.
Returning to the Metrodome, Barnsley, the scene of his first Pro Tour win last year, Superchin was narrowly edged out in the first round 5-6 by Rowby John Rodriguez on day one.
Roles were reversed in round one of the second event, as Daryl edged out Alan Tabern in a last leg decider. He then defeated Mick McGowan 6-2 before he was beaten 0-6 by Simon Stevenson in the last 32.
