PHIL TAYLOR won his second Speedy Hire UK Open Qualifier, defeating Colin Osborne 6-3 to claim victory in the last of eight events as players battled to win places in the televised finals in Bolton.
Taylor bounced back from Saturday’s loss to Gary Anderson in the final by claiming the £6,000 first prize 24 hours later at Wigan’s Robin Park Tennis Centre – copying his achievements a fortnight ago in Wigan.
GARY ANDERSON completed a Speedy Hire UK Open double over Phil Taylor, claiming a 6-2 win when the pair met in the Qualifier Seven final at Wigan on Saturday.
Anderson had defeated Taylor to win Qualifier Five a fortnight ago, and repeated the feat with a fine display to take the £6,000 title, also avenging Thursday’s 888.com Premier League Darts loss to the Stoke legend at the same time.
