Daryl Gurney and Gerwyn Price involved in heated clash on stage

2019 Unibet Premier League Darts

There was drama in week 15 of the Premier League darts in Sheffield on Thursday night.

Daryl Gurney and Gerwyn Price had to be separated by security guards in South Yorkshire following on from a confrontation on stage that the pair had after their match had come to a conclusion.

Northern Irishman Gurney pointed at Welshman Price's back prior to pretending to throw a punch at him.

He then shouted to his family and friends watching on in the crowd before pointing at Price again.

It appeared that he shouted 'd******d', as he let his frustrations get the better of him.

As Price went to shake Gurney's hand, it was rejected and referee George Noble was forced to attempt to calm things down before security entered to break up the pair.

Gurney and Price shared a draw, a result which does neither player any good, with both men outside of the top four with just one week of Premier League action left to play before Finals night at London's O2 Arena.

Gurney is fifth on 17 points, while Price is a point and a place below him in the table.

"It looked like Daryl was more upset," said three-time world champion John Part of the incident. "I think he had a little bit of relief getting a draw, the thing is I think he let if get the better of him.

"Price was okay, he didn’t really realise the aggro was there and obviously he’s going to stand up for himself.

"Definitely Daryl was worked up about something."

Sky Sports pundit Wayne Mardle said: "I don’t know what he did wrong, we didn’t hear anything, we didn’t see anything. ‘All we know is at the end was that Daryl Gurney was definitely the aggressor there."
