John Henderson mounted a brilliant comeback to draw with Michael van Gerwen to cap off a brilliant Premier League debut in Aberdeen.
Henderson was on the verge of a heavy defeat but as Mighty Mike started to falter he got better as he made it a debut one to remember.
Van Gerwen went 3-0 up with ease but Henderson sent the crowd wild by claiming his first leg. Mighty Mike dispelled that by kicking off with six perfect darts and upped his average to 113.
Hendo hit back with a 10 darter to keep himself involved at 4-2 behind. From there he started to hit back making it 5-4 to send the crowd wild. Van Gerwen claimed a definite point but couldn’t close out the win with Henderson claiming the draw from there.
