Clayton's collection

By Paul Woodage 18/11/2021

Chuck a few pork chops, steaks and sausages on the kitchen floor and amusingly watch your pet dog effortlessly gobble them up.

In the world of darts right now, that analogy is perfectly comparable to Jonny Clayton. Well.....almost!

Since winning the Masters at the start of 2021, the Welshman has been like an eccentric hoover when it’s come to picking up trophies.

His current tally for the year - a magnificent four. The Premier League, World Series and World Grand Prix have all additionally taken their pride of place on the Ferret’s mantelpiece. 

With three more major trophies to play for between now and the start of January, few would bet against him adding to that tally. And boy, wouldn’t he like the whole lot - but especially the biggest one of all ... the World Championship.

Standing in front of Clayton next on his quest for title number five is good friend and compatriot Gerwyn Price. 

On Friday night, the two Welsh giants once again renew rivalries as they both look to book their place in the semi-final of the Cazoo Grand Slam of Darts.

It’s a piece of silverware the Ferret has yet to get his hands on. In contrast, it was the one that began the Price era of supremacy - lifting it in 2018 before successfully defending it twelve months later.

After eight successive defeats over the world number one, Clayton finally stopped the rot in style - comprehensively overcoming Price to claim the World Grand Prix Final in Leicester last month.

A few weeks later, and they clashed once again in Amsterdam at the World Series of Darts. This time it was a much closer contest but the same outcome - victory for Jonny.

All eyes with be glued to the latest battle in this fascinating all Welsh saga. Which Red Dragon will be still breathing fire on Friday night?
