Price Lowered . . . Gerwyn Denied In World Grand Prix Final

Gerwyn Price was unable to lift darts’ World Grand Prix title in Leicester as he lost out in the final to Luke Humpries.

Price admitted he had been wayward in the moments that matter after he was beaten 5-2.

“I’m absolutely gutted but it’s what happens. I wish we could play these games in Wales,” said a disconsolate Price.

“I think I played better than him tonight. I felt he played better at the right times, but I played better overall. Fair play to Luke, he did what he had to do, and he had a lot of support. I didn’t help myself early on, but Luke played fantastic and he’s a worthy winner.



Cardiff Devils were also left grounded as they suffered a second successive defeat to Belfast Giants in the Elite League.

Sean Norris put Giants ahead in the opening period and although Trevor Cox replied, Daniel Tedesco restored the lead.

Charlie Curti scored a third for Giants and although Riley Brandt pulled a goal back for Devils, Quinn Preston sealed victory for the visitors.

The Devils host Coventry Blaze in the Challenge Cup on Friday 13th October.
