JONNY CLAYTON is aiming for a place in the world's top ten after claiming his third PDC title on Sunday.
Clayton posted an impressive 103.3 average in his 8-4 victory over Gabriel Clemens in the final of Players Championship 10 to return to the winners' circle almost a year on from his last PDC title win at the Austrian Darts Open.
The Welshman is now up to 13th on the PDC Order of Merit, having broken into the top 16 for the first time at the end of 2018, and Clayton is focused on maintaining his upward trajectory.
"I'd love to break into the top ten, that's my main goal and anything more than that would be a bonus," said Clayton, who will partner Gerwyn Price at the BetVictor World Cup of Darts in June.
"The main thing is that I'm enjoying myself, I love competing against the best because that's how you improve the level of your game.
"I know what I'm capable of, it's just a matter of keeping consistent and that's what I'm trying really hard to do. I just want to play my best game as much as I can.
"I'm back in work every Monday morning after tournaments, maybe my time as a plasterer is coming to an end but I thought that three years ago and I'm still at it!
"To beat Gabriel on Sunday was a great feeling because he's a brilliant player who I believe will be in the top 32 or top 16 before long. Hopefully I can win a few more titles now."
Clayton will return to action at the Players Championship 11-12 across the weekend of April 13-14 at The Barnsley Metrodome, with live action shown on video.pdc.tv
