MARK WALSH gained revenge for Saturday's defeat to Phil Taylor with a 6-4 victory in Sunday's Players Championship final in Derby - while Wayne Mardle narrowly missed out on snatching an automatic place in the Ladbrokes.com World Darts Championship by reaching the semi-finals.
Walsh had been defeated 6-3 in Saturday's final by Taylor, but took home the £6,000 winner's cheque a day later with a fine display at the Moorways Leisure Centre.
