The 2019 Premier League of Darts lineup has been announced.
As is now the tradition, at the end of the World Championship of Darts, Barry Hearn gets a little extra TV face time to announce the lineup for the upcoming Premier League of Darts. Here it is :
So two new faces, Michael Smith, the World Championship finalist gets a well deserved spot after an epic showing in the ‘Worlds’ and James Wade returns to the Premier League, hopefully in a better place than he was towards the end of his world championship.
Thankfully we will get to see Barney in the Premier League for one final season before his planned retirement, as he picks up a Sky TV wildcard for the Tournament.
Hopefully Price will modify his behaviour this year, because to be honest, I quite like the guy. Check him out on Twitter – he seems a decent lad off the stage, but on the stage, in front of the cameras he is just too hard to stomach, getting on like a truly magical sac. Thank goodness for Sky Plus and the Fast Forward button!
All in all though the lineup looks good, and will hopefully lead to some great Thursday night viewing.
