There’s life in the old dog yet, according to Gary Anderson.

The Scot swept away the field during a busy weekend of Players Championship action in Barnsley. Anderson thrashed Rob Cross and Peter Wright 6-0 to take the PC3 title on Saturday. PC4 went the same way, with Jeffrey de Zwaan the defeated finalist on Sunday.

“Yesterday I played better, today was a bit scrappy, but two on the trot – I’ll take that,” Anderson told Live Darts.

“I’m just here to prove a point that I’m not quite finished yet.”

Questions have abounded concerning Anderson’s future in the game. The Scot has fanned the flames often himself, claiming that he may be reaching the end of his career. Wright and Cross have passed him in the Order of Merit in the past year. The Flying Scotsman is aware of that, but won’t compromise his planned schedule.

“I’m down to fourth [in the rankings] so I’m dropping. I think this will be my third year now where I’ve not done a European Tour so I’m losing points off my ranking left, right and centre,” he said.

“I’m a big believer in Players Championships and UK tournaments, that’s where I want to be.”
