Gerwyn Price Bows Out Of Players Championship In Semi-Finals

Gerwyn Price saw his hopes of winning the Ladbrokes Players Championship Finals dashed after a 11-8 semi-final defeat to defending champ Michael van Gerwen.

The 35-year-old looked to have a good chance of avenging last year’s defeat in the final to the Dutch darter after taking an 8-6 lead at Coventry’s Ricoh Arena.

Price, crucially, then missed two darts to go three legs up in their best of 21 leg clash.

But the world No 1 van Gerwen responded by taking the leg before reeling off five legs in a row to reach the final.

Price, who pocketed a cheque for £25,000, had been involved in another thriller in his quarter-final with Joe Cullen.

The Markham marksman hit a 14-darter against the throw in the deciding leg to win 10-9 having been 4-1 down earlier.
