Gary Anderson booked his fifth tournament title of the year as he beat Gabriel Clemens 6-5 in the final of Players Championship 11.

The Scotsman held his nerve in a thrilling legdecider to complete a brilliant comeback from 4-1 down against Clemens, who played his first Pro Tour final. Anderson won the UK Open and three Pro Tour events earlier this season.

“It was a hard old day but I’m happy to get the win,” said Anderson, who will face Clemens again on Friday in the first round of the German Darts Masters.

“Gabriel made me work hard for that win, I had to fight right until the end so I’m pleased that I managed to scrap out the result.

“On Thursday in the Premier League it felt like there was nothing there so to win today was a good way for me to put that behind me.

“Now I’m going to focus on winning more titles this year and I’ll see how far I can go in the big tournaments.”
