SIMON WHITLOCK was denied a second European Championship title after losing in Sunday’s final in Dortmund, where Joe Cullen had reached is first televised semi-final.

Whitlock saw Steve Beaton and world number two Peter Wright to book his place in the final day of action.

He then defeated Steve West, who was appearing in his second TV quarter-final of the year, before edging out Cullen in a last-leg decider to reach the final – thanks to a 110 checkout.

The Australian, who claimed European glory in 2012, lost out to James Wade in the final.

Both he and Cullen left the event with mixed emotions, following their best runs on TV in 2018.
