Wright on setting next darting goals after World Darts Championship: “I’m not worried about the money, I don’t get it anyway”

Peter Wright will now look ahead to new goals after his PDC World Darts Championship triumph with the Premier League potentially the next goal for ‘Snakebite’ who said he is chasing titles not money.

“I got back home on the Wednesday, unpacked the car and mucked out the chickens. It was also good to see my dogs and cats for the first time in ages,” he said to Oche.

“I already have new targets. I don’t need to say much now. I would love to win the Premier League, I’ve missed my chances on that one too many times.

“It’s not about money, I’ve not even thought about the £500k for the Worlds. I just love playing and winning titles. I’m not worried about the money. I don’t get it anyway!

“I just want to get more socks and Space Jam boxers. I forgot my lucky pants for the Ally Pally and they are worn out now.”

One title he will look to defend this year is the World Cup of Darts and he discussed the potential of Alan Soutar joining the race.

“I don’t know how they are going to pick it. If John gets the choice or the nod because he is the defending champion.

“I know Gary declined last year, whether he decides he wants to come back this year, that’d be fantastic.

“But if it is John or Alan, he’s quality and only going to get better and better as well, it’s great for Scottish darts.

“Hopefully, we can get Robert Thornton back on track and get him back up the rankings as well.”
