Burnham-On-Sea darts star Gary Anderson wins Champions League

Burnham-On-Sea darts star Gary Anderson has win the Champions League of Darts for the first time.

Gary Anderson, 47, added the Champions League title on Sunday night (September 23rd) to the World Matchplay crown he won in July.

He struggled with a bad back during Sunday's play and almost went out in the group stage, winning a deciding leg against Michael van Gerwen to progress.

Anderson then defeated Austria's Mensur Suljovic 11-4 in the last four before overcoming Peter Wright in an all-Scottish final.

Having lost his first group match to Daryl Gurney on Saturday, followed by Gurney's victory against Dave Chisnall in Sunday's afternoon session, Anderson knew only a win over tournament favourite Van Gerwen would be good enough to secure a semi-final place.

Two-time world champion Anderson let a 9-6 advantage slip and then watched Van Gerwen miss two match darts in the deciding leg to eliminate him, before stepping up to take out a brilliant 140 checkout for a memorable 10-9 victory.
