Anderson has won almost all there is to be won but admits that the Grand Slam is his favourite tournament as it’s the first one he played in the PDC.

‘The Flying Scotsman’ said that he loves to round robin format as if you lose your first game, you still have another two games to put it right.

“I’m desperate to win the Grand Slam before the end of my career,” Anderson explained.

“It’s my favourite tournament and it’s the first one I played in the PDC when I was still with the BDO.

“It’s been my favourite since day one and I’ve been there every single year so I’ve got to stick at it

“I like the fact that you can play your first game, get beat and still qualify; you’ve got another two games to put it right.

“I’ll be giving it a heck of a push to win that either this year or if not then definitely next year.”
