GARY ANDERSON claimed his first televised PDC title with a glorious 10-4 victory over Adrian Lewis in the 888.com Premier League Darts, as Phil Taylor and Raymond van Barneveld suffered Wembley heartbreak.
Anderson followed up an 8-6 semi-final victory over van Barneveld with a sensational display in the decider, taking leads of 4-0 and 9-1 before walking off with the £125,000 first prize.
Lewis had won through to his first Premier League final with a stunning 8-3 defeat of reigning champion Phil Taylor in the semis, but failed to recapture the form as Anderson prevailed.
RAYMOND VAN BARNEVELD secured a place in the 888.com Premier League Darts Play-Offs with an 8-4 win over Gary Anderson at the BIC in Bournemouth, as Adrian Lewis put one foot into the top four.
Dutch ace van Barneveld had missed out on a top-four finish in last year’s Premier League for the first time since he joined the PDC in 2006, but a seventh win of this season means he will compete for the £125,000 title at the Wembley Arena.
