The previous competitions have all included all time great, Phil Taylor, who retired earlier this year.

Stoke’s Phil Taylor beat Dutchman Jelle Klaasen 7-5 in last night’s Darts Premier League, hitting an average of 97.5%.

Klaasen had already been eliminated from this year’s League, so was playing for pride alone, while Taylor is fighting for a top four play-off place.


Phil Taylor was knocked off the top of the Premier League table as fellow Stokie Adrian Lewis eased to an important 7-4 victory in Glasgow.

It was the first loss of the 2017 Premier League season for Taylor, as he dropped to third in the table, while Lewis jumped out of the bottom two.
