Anderson edges out Newton in Crawley

GARY ANDERSON won his second PDC ProTour title with victory over Wes Newton in the fourth UK Open Qualifier of 2010, taking out a 135 finish to win the final.

The Scot claimed a Players Championship win in Newport last May, and matched that with the £6,000 title at Crawley's K2 Centre with a high-quality display writes the PDC's Dave Allen.

Anderson whitewashed Kevin Dowling in his opening game on the day, before seeing off Kevin Painter, Matt Clark and Colin Lloyd to reach the quarter-finals.

There, he overcame Raymond van Barneveld 6-2 before edging past Andy Hamilton 6-5 in the semi-finals with an 11-darter in the deciding leg.

The final also went the full distance, as Newton hit back from going 2-0 down early on - after Anderson took out 110 for the first leg and double ten in the second - to lead 4-3.

Anderson hit double top in the next two legs to move 5-4 up, but Newton saved the game with a sensational 156 checkout.

The Fleetwood ace also opened the final leg with back-to-back 180s, and missed treble 19 in his bid for a potential nine-darter, before also wasting two match darts at double 16 to allow Anderson back to the oche, with the Scot finishing 135 on the bull for the victory.

Newton's run pocketed him £3,000 but saw him denied a second PDC ProTour win in cruel fashion.

He had been a 6-5 semi-final winner against world number three James Wade, having also defeated Justin Pipe, Steve Maish, Aodhagan O'Neill, Alex Roy and Tom Martin in bouncing back strongly from a first round loss in Saturday's Players Championship.

Wade's run to the semis was his second of the weekend and fourth of the year, as he lost in a deciding leg for the second successive day.

Hamilton reached the last four for the fifth time so far in 2010, while Justin Pipe reached the quarter-finals for the second time on the PDC ProTour before losing to Newton.
