Premier warm-up for Anderson

Eyemouth darts ace Gary Anderson lost out to Raymond Van Barneveld in the semi-finals of the Unibet Masters at ArenaMK in Milton Keynes on Sunday.

The new world champion went down 11-6 to the Dutchman, who eventually lost to world number one Michael Van Gerwen in an all-Dutch final.

Anderson had to settle for £17,500 prize money, having produced some brilliant darts ahead of the Premier League opener next Thursday.

An exhibition match featuring Anderson v Adrian Lewis at the Volunteer Hall, Galashiels, on April 18 has sold out.
