Gary Anderson enjoyed a good return to the tour after some time off after his Perth victory and got to the final of the 2nd edition of the Champions League of Darts in Cardiff losing out to first time TV winner Mensur Suljovic who he lost to previously in the weekend and the final in itself underlines the point that Anderson grows as the year goes on.

After the loss he spoke admirably about Mensur as well as about his own game.

The Flying Scotsman said : “Mensur has been brilliant and you can see how much it means to him.

“He’s been phenomenal for the last two years and he’s been the best player this weekend. He deserves it – he’s been the player of the tournament and smashed the lot of us.

“It’s been a great event. It’s a couple of weeks since I won in Perth and I got better as the event went on. I struggled against Mensur, then played better on Saturday evening and played well today.

“I did alright in the final and I’d have loved to have made it ten-all and then see what happened in the last leg, but I had three clear darts at double ten and made a complete mess of it, so we’ll never know.”
