Gerwyn Price’s Grand Slam Title Hat-Trick Dreams Ended

Gerwyn Price saw his hopes of a Grand Slam of Darts title hat-trick ended after a 10-8 defeat in the last 16 to Nathan Aspinall.

The Markham darter refused to bow out without a fight as he fought back from 7-3 down in the best of 19 legs clash.

Pre-tournament favourite Price grabbed the lead in the match at Coventry’s Ricoh Arena as he edged 8-7 ahead.

But Aspinall reeled off three legs in a row to book his spot in the quarter-finals.

Price was bidding to emulate Michael van Gerwen and Phil Taylor who had both won the Grand Slam title three years in a row.

But there was no victory this time for Price, who had survived match darts in two of his three group games to triumph, as his 14-match unbeaten run at the tournament was ended.
