Daryl Gurney says it will be a 'big deal' if he has to shave his head for charity but he's thrown down the gauntlet to supporters.

If he can raise £10,000 for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust via his Facebook page, the 2018 Players' Championship winner will cut off his hair ahead of the Champions League of Darts.

The tournament isn't taking place until 19/20 October so there's plenty of time to hit the target.

Gurney has been prompted to raise money by a personal tragedy when he lost his friend Aaron McMenamin in 2017.

The Londonderry man has previously raised money for the charity through a variety of ways but none quite as personal as this.

And he's got his manager to thank for the bright idea.

#HairTodayGoneTomorrow Hi guys as you know Cystic Fibrosis has effected my life greatly with the loss of my best friend...

"I will shave my hair just before the Champions League of Datys in Leicester in October if we reach a minimum of £10,000 in donations and all the money will go to the charity," vowed Gurney on his Facebook page.

"Anyone who knows me knows how much I love my hair so this will be a big deal.

"More information on the way I will need lots of likes and shares also anyone who donates will go into a draw and the random winner will receive a match worn shirt from the event signed by all eight of the players in Leicester."

You can donate by following the link to the Facebook post above.
