Gerwyn Price is a major title winner after he claimed the Grand Slam of Darts in a thrilling final which wasn’t short of controversy.

Price came from behind to see off Gary Anderson; after winning, he spoke and admitted he is thrilled to bits. Also he thought from the start of the week that he had a good chance of reaching the final; of course he achieved that goal and further.
“I’ve got over the winning line and I’m thrilled to bits,” he said. “It was an up and down final but I knew that if I stuck in there I’d get my chances, and I took them.
“I was pretty confident at the beginning of the week and I knew that I had a good chance of reaching the final, but I was chasing Gary all the way there.
“He wasn’t playing brilliantly, he was being consistent at what he does. I knew if I just put it up one gear that I’d beat him.
“I knew that he doesn’t like the way I play. My game is my game, he just needs to concentrate on his own. I’ve won the tournament and I’m over the moon.”
Price finally added: “I’m the first person to win the Eric Bristow Trophy and that means a huge amount to me – it’s something nobody can ever take from me.”
