Price determined to bounce back after “draining” Premier League Darts debut

Gerwyn Price admits the gruelling schedule of the Premier League caught him off guard but is confident he can bounce back quickly in the second half of the season.

Price was eliminated at the halfway stage of the competition after finishing bottom of the table on Judgement Night with a record low tally of two points.

The Welshman drew two of his opening three games before losing the next six to bow out alongside Austria's Mensur Suljovic.

Price, however, has shown encouraging signs of a return to form in recent weeks, reaching back-to-back ranking Quarter-Finals to leapfrog Raymond van Barneveld into eleventh on the PDC Order of Merit.

Speaking to MC Elmar Paulke during the weekend's German Open, Price revealed: "Turning up and playing in front of big crowds was good for me.

"It was an experience but the time away took it out of me and I didn't realise how hard it was going to be.

"Sometimes you're away for five or six days a week and it's hard work.

"You're going to the Premier League then you're at the ProTours, maybe home for a day again and it drains you.

"I wasn't used to that and it caught me off guard but if ever I get in the Premier League again a few years down the line, I'll know what to expect.

"I probably beat myself up early on in the competition and gave some of the games away.

"I'm happy to be back in form on the floor, I just need to start doing it on TV again and in the European Tours," he added.
