Nathan Aspinall edged out Michael Van Gerwen last night in a brilliant win as the Premier League hit Cardiff.

Aspinall was understandably pleased in the aftermath and said he feels his Premier League campaign has fully started after beating Van Gerwen.

He added that he wasn’t too happy with his opening games but now he’s proved to himself that he has his best game in his locker.

“I feel like I’ve arrived in the Premier League now, it doesn’t get much better than beating the best player in the world on the Premier League stage,” a delighted Aspinall explained.

“I haven’t been at all happy with how I played in the first two weeks, which makes it an even better feeling to play well tonight.

“It was important for me to prove to everyone and myself that I can play well in the Premier League.

“I enjoyed every minute of it up there tonight and I think that’s when I’m at my best. The crowd were fantastic.

“I was disappointed with how I played against Michael at the World Championship so it was nice to get one back over him.”
