Peter Wright Wins World Championship

Scot dominates Van Gerwen in decider

Peter Wright won his first ever PDC World Darts Championship title last night.

The Scot dominated the final at Alexandra Palace, defeating reigning champion Michael van Gerwen 7-sets-to-3.

It marked the first time seventh seed Wright has beaten the World number one in the decider of a major tournament.


Fallon Sherrock has been named as one of nine challengers to compete alongside the top nine players in this year's Premier League Darts.

The 25-year-old last month became the first woman to win a PDC World Championship match as she reached round three at Alexandra Palace.

One challenger will appear with the top nine in each week of the event, which begins in Aberdeen on 6 February.
