Gerwyn Price is through to the second round at the Grand Slam of Darts in Wolverhampton after victory over Dimitri van den Bergh in a 5-2 win.

Price spoke afterwards and admitted that he was relieved to get through but he wanted to claim the win to top the group.

‘The Iceman’ added that he is enjoying playing now and will want to go on and claim the title in Wolverhampton.

“I’m very relieved and once I got to four legs I knew I was through but I wanted to get the win to top the group,” said Price.

“I was a bit edgy because I knew I had to win still and I didn’t make it easy but I took my opportunity to finish the game off in the end.

“In my first two games I didn’t play as well as I could but I let myself go today and I was back to my old self. I’m enjoying it and hopefully I can go on and defend my title now.”
