Gary Anderson had some time away from the oche at the start of the season due to injury and the effect of that was him getting into better shape.

He revealed in an interview with LiveDarts earlier this week; that this has affected him down to his dart and that a new barrel has had to be designed as a result.

‘The Flying Scotsman’ added that his darts weren’t suiting him; but now it’s all about getting the hunger back with him back full time on the PDC Tour.

He told Live Darts: “Unicorn have been designing me a new dart, I felt like I was struggling because I lost two stone.

“So between having the time off and losing the weight, my darts weren’t suiting me.

“I’m kind of standing back upright more now when I’m playing. Now it’s just about getting the hunger back.

“I came back from the World Series with a few pounds extra so I’m now trying to lose it again.

“When I was away again I was back eating rubbish. When I was off I actually ate more but it’s the darts lifestyle that plays havoc with you.

“When I play darts I rarely eat until after the game late at night and that doesn’t really help you. The travelling also makes it difficult and then being tired on top of it, that makes you lazy.

“It’s a combination of all that which I’m having to get used to again. It’s only fast food places when you are on the go.”
