Gerwyn Price won his first title since becoming World Champion after beating Luke Humfies 8-5 in the Players Championship 6. Price was in his scintillating form, leaving his best for the final where he took home a cheque of 10,000GBP.

“I’m enjoying darts and playing well,” admitted Price. “Every game I play is really tough because everyone’s raising their game against me. It brings the best out of me and it’s another win for me, so hopefully, I can push on from here and pick up a couple more.”

Price average a healthy 102.69 in the seven matches on the day and became the sixth-highest average by a player since scoring began in 2018. He defeated Chris Dobey in the first round before beating Andrew Gliding in a decider in the second round. He then saw off Rowby-John Rodriguez, Scott Mitchell and Michael Smith to reach the semi-finals. He defeated Brendan Dolan in the semi-finals before eventually getting the better of Luke Humphries in the final.

“I’ve been playing pretty decent – sometimes I miss a couple of doubles, if you give people chances they’re going to take them and Brendan did exactly that yesterday,” he added. “Obviously everyone’s out to beat you and I’ve got a big target on my back, but it’s nice to get another win under my belt. I’m playing well but people are playing well against me as well.”
