PETER WRIGHT secured his place in the Paddy Power Champions League of Darts with his double Players Championship success this week.

The Scot became the latest player to enjoy back-to-back Players Championship victories by racing through the midweek double-header in Barnsley with two wins.

The £20,000 prize money he earned means that Wright - the 2018 Champions League runner-up - is now assured of a place in the top eight of the PDC Order of Merit after the forthcoming World Matchplay.

That secures his place in the Paddy Power Champions League of Darts - where he will compete against the likes of reigning champion Gary Anderson and World Champion Michael van Gerwen at the Morningside Arena in Leicester on Octber 19-20.

Rob Cross, Daryl Gurney and Michael Smith are also assured of their place in the Champions League - leaving two places to be confirmed following the World Matchplay.

Gerwyn Price is currently seventh on the Order of Merit, and the Grand Slam of Darts champion is in a strong position to secure a Champions League debut.

James Wade sits eighth going into the World Matchplay ahead of 2017 Champions League winner Mensur Suljovic, who could move into the qualifying places by reaching the Blackpool semi-finals.

Ian White could qualify by reaching the World Matchplay final, while Simon Whitlock, Dave Chisnall, Nathan Aspinall and Jonny Clayton must claim the £150,000 top prize in Blackpool if they were to snatch a place.
