Mervyn King claimed his first PDC title in almost four years with a 6-2 win over James Wade in the final of Players Championship 15 at The Barnsley Metrodome.

Having last tasted victory at the European Darts Grand Prix in September 2014, King – who lives at Bradwell – produced a stunning 105.2 average to run out a comfortable winner in his first ProTour final of the year.

King recorded wins over Simon Preston, Matthew Edgar, Rowby-John Rodriguez, Robert Marijanovic, Ian White, Mark Webster and Wade en route to clinching the £10,000 top prize.

“It’s a massive day for me, I’m really happy with that result,” said King. “James is a fantastic player and a great friend who gives me a lot of advice in life and darts, so I knew I would have to play well to beat him. I upped my level in every game I played today, which was pleasing. There’s a bit more left in the tank but I’m really happy with how today went.”
