World Number 1 and current World Champion Luke Humphries defeated Stockport’s Nathan Aspinall 6-3 in the final to win his second consecutive Premier League night.

Humphries, from Crewe, made the final after beating Peter Wright 6-1 in the semi-final and St Helens star Michael Smith 6-4 in the quarters.

Teenage darting sensation Luke Littler, from Warrington, produced a superb performance in the quarters to beat Michael Van Gerwen 6-2.

Littler averaged 114 and hit an 11-dart leg.

However, the 17-year-old was defeated by World Matchplay champion Aspinall in the semi-final after “The Asp” hit an astonishing five 180s and averaged 104.4.

In his quarter-final match, Aspinall defeated “Voltage” Rob Cross in a narrow 6-5 win.

Premier League Night 7 Winner “Coolhand” Luke told Merseysportlive he is no longer incentivized to play well for cash.

He says he now plays darts to leave a legacy of success behind him.

“Money does not motivate me. Winning titles does now,” he said.

“The feeling of winning it means much more than anything as I walked off – money can’t buy that.”

Humphries also expressed to Merseysportlive his delight to play in Ireland next week in the Premier League.

“My Grandad is fully Irish my mum is half IUrish so it’s a special place for me.”

Four-time major Winner Humphries also said he will not take part in the Players Championship 5 and 6 in Germany later this month to spend more time with his family.

“I’ve got a young son. I can’t play in everything, there has to be a balance.”

Eight-time major winner Peter Wright recorded his first win of the Premier League campaign after beating Gerwyn Price 6-5.

Scotsman Wright said he feels under pressure to constantly perform at a high standard.

He said: “I suppose a sort of pressure by the guys who do the commentating on tv and everything… oh you haven’t won a major, you haven’t won a floor tournament… so hopefully I can win a major this year and it’s the Matchplay.”
