Claiming a title in the sole European Tour event in the form of the Belgian Darts Championship and reaching the final at the 2020 UK Open, it was a very good start to the year for Gerwyn Price but due to issues surrounding the Coronavirus, he will not be able to continue that great form.

For Price though. it is all about keeping his head down ready for when it all begins again and being able to play tournaments again despite of course it being a bitter pill to swallow.

“I’m still practising on the board and doing what I can do, but apart from that really there’s nothing else I can do,” said Price to Sky Sports News.

“I’m lucky, I’ve got a little pool table and I’m relaxing in the garden when the weather’s not too bad.

“I’m actually doing more now. When we’re flat out playing darts, really that’s my practice because we play practically every day of the week and then when I’m home I like to have some downtime with the family,” added The Iceman.

“I’m looking forward to getting back playing, not just in the Premier League but in the ProTours and Europeans as well. It’s just a pity that this has come around now.

“I’m very disappointed – not just for myself but for the fans and everybody who pays their money and want to turn up and watch, and now they’ve got to wait for that.

“But it’s just what needs to be done with this outbreak. Everybody needs to stay safe and be positive.”
