Peter Wright says give youngsters a chance in Premier League Darts over him but after potential one final year

This Premier League Darts is one to quickly forget for Peter Wright. After fifteen rounds of play, 'Snakebite' stands at just two wins and fifteen defeats. It could possibly even be Wright's last year in the best darts competition.

In an interview with Oche180, Wright himself indicated that he would like to compete in the Premier League a maximum of one more time. The Scot then still needs to earn his spot for the lineup in 2025.

''If I win a major and they select me next year, that will probably be my last Premier League. I'm going to do my best to say goodbye with a win,'' Wright stated.

The 54-year-old Wright's age plays a role in Wright's decision to prefer not to play in the Premier League from 2026. ''

“If I win a major and they pick me next year that will probably be my last Premier League. I’ll try my hardest to go out with a win. I’m getting older and all the travelling is tough. I’d concentrate on all the other tournaments. Let these other youngsters like Joe Cullen and Chris Dobey get their chance!

The two-time world champion is having a disastrous season for now, but Wright expects to still be able to right himself.

“Is it the end? No. I believe I can win a major this year, definitely. Obviously we’ve got some fantastic players at the moment, the two Lukes and Gary Anderson. I’ve got a few months yet to win majors. I’ll get myself ready for that. It’s been a disaster this year in the Premier League for me."

Wright has no idea why things are still so difficult this year in terms of results in Premier League Darts. ''I can’t explain the reasoning of it. It’s just one of those things. I’m not moaning about it but maybe it’s the format, being at the venue for so long getting ready for it.”

Should Wright not receive an invitation to the 2025 Premier League Darts, he will be missing for the first time since 2013. Moreover, a Scottish darter has always competed since 2011, with Gary Anderson and Robert Thornton also previously competing.
