Gerwyn Price’s Instagram story minutes after his Premier League Darts campaign comes to an end speaks volumes

Gerwyn Price’s Instagram story minutes after his Premier League Darts campaign comes to an end speaks volumes

The Welsh star suffered elimination on Thursday.

Gerwyn Price posted on Instagram moments after he was eliminated from the Premier League Darts, and his message spoke volumes.

The league stage of the 2024 Premier League Darts drew to a close in Sheffield on Thursday.

Michael Smith claimed just his second nightly win of the season to claim the fourth and final play-off spot, beating Nathan Aspinall, Luke Littler and then world champion Luke Humphries.

Teenage sensation Littler topped the table with 40 points, with Humphries second and Michael van Gerwen third.

Welsh star Gerwyn Price won't be involved in the play-off semi-finals in London next week after he finished seventh in the standings.

Price concluded his sixth participation in the Premier League Darts without a single weekly title, and in the last six weeks of the season he recorded just one victory.

Over the 16 rounds 'The Iceman' reached a weekly final just twice, and in the end he claimed only 12 points. Only Peter Wright finished below him in the table with four points.

Shortly after suffering a 6-4 defeat to Luke Humphries in the Night 16 quarter-finals, Price shared a message with his Instagram followers that summed up his feelings about Premier League Darts.

"So happy that's done and dusted, end of the Premier League for me now," Price wrote.

"Looking forward to putting my full attention to ranked events from now on, would love to say I've enjoyed it but I'd be lying #nomore."

The Premier League Darts is considered a non-ranking tournament, so Price is keen to focus on competitions where prize money for the world rankings can be earned.

Price has enjoyed little success in Premier League Darts. The only season in which the former rugby player qualified for the play-offs was 2023, when he lost to Van Gerwen in the final.

Next week's 19-leg semi-finals see Littler take on Smith and Humphries face Van Gerwen. The final will follow on the same night and will be best of 21 legs.
