Ian White is the first player through to the final at the European Darts Grand Prix after seeing off Steve Beaton in the first semi-final in Sindelfingen.

He averaged 98 in a 7-5 win over The Bronzed Adonis and becomes only the second player to reach three consecutive finals on the European Tour.

‘Diamond’ went 3-1 up with a 128 checkout but Beaton squared it up at 4-4. Beaton went in front at 5-4 but White stopped the rot.

The most important time in the match came in the next leg with Beaton missing 3 at double 11 for a 6-5 lead and White streaked to the win.
