Josh Payne wins his first senior title at Players Championship Six!

Josh edged out James Wade 6-5 with a brilliant display to take the title at the Barnsley Metrodome on Saturday.

He kicked off a memorable day with wins over Gerwyn Price, Ronny Huybrechts and Wes Newton before seeing off former major winner Kevin Painter 6-4 in the last 16.

He then edged out Mensur Suljovic in a deciding leg in the quarter-finals and dropped just three legs in his semi-final win over Steve Brown before taking Wade all the way in the final, eventually sealing victory with a 116 checkout as his opponent waited on tops.
