Gerwyn Price goes into the Grand Slam of Darts this weekend aiming to recapture the form that saw him claim victory 12 months ago against Gary Anderson.

Price as part of Sky Sports Greatest Game series said that his final was his favourite game and that to beat an arch enemy was great and that it meant the world to him to be the first Welshman and to pick up a first major trophy.

“In the quarter-final and semi-final, Simon and Mensur had got away from me, at one point I was 10-5 down against Mensur but I never stopped believing. I knew that if that circumstance came along in the final then I would just fight my way back into it. I think there was a four-leg gap in the final, but I never gave up and as long as you stick on their coattails, they will start throwing some rubbish darts, which he did.”

“It’s a great feeling to pick up any trophy but to win your first ever major and be the first-ever Welshman as well it means the world to me. The feeling on stage to beat an arch enemy was great.”
