The world number one successfully defended his title with a brilliant 6-2 defeat of the impressive Northern Ireland ace in front of a 4000 strong crowd.

van Gerwen, who had returned to winning ways in the Premier League last Thursday, when he overcame World Champion Gary Anderson with a stylish performance, continued his excellent form with four victories to claim the first European Tour title of 2016.

It feels incredible,” said van Gerwen, who collected £25,000 for his latest success. “It’s fantastic for myself and for the home crowd, and in the final I played good darts.

“I hope I can carry this on for the rest of the season but I’m playing well and I’m very pleased with this performance. I want to win as many tournaments as possible and I showed today that I was the best in this tournament.”

The Dutch maestro had seen off John Henderson, Justin Pipe, Dave Chisnall and Mervyn King to reach the final, in which he stormed to a 6-2 victory and averaged over 112.

van Gerwen will be back in Premier League action on Thursday in Dublin, where he faces Adrian Lewis.
