Clayton reflects on Premier League debut year so far: "You have to do something special to be a part of that ten"
Jonny Clayton will resume his Premier League campaign on Wednesday with the latest block of action with 'The Ferret' one of the leading lights sitting on ten points from his first nine games.
Clayton is currently in joint fourth place and discussed the lack of crowds and how that hasn't diminished his enthusiasm from his debut year.
"I'm a little bit disappointed there is no crowd because I would have liked to have experienced the massive crowds but at the end of the day, I'm in the Premier League and I'll take that everyday. So I'm really enjoying my time there," said Clayton to the Weekly Dartscast.
"It's definitely still the Premier League, it's just the crowd it's a plus. You're playing against the elite, ten players there who have earned their spot. To get into that Premier League you have to do something special so to be a part of that ten, it's mind blowing."
Missed Super Series 3
Clayton ended up missing the third Super Series mainly due to Covid and having to isolate on return and it was the first he has missed in a long time. He admitted though that he needed the break.
"I do look at the results to be honest. I like to know to see who is doing well and who is not but no it's my first block of tournaments that I've missed. So I think I needed a holiday so I left this one out."
