The prize recognises the sport’s best players in the past 12 months.

Anderson, who claimed victory in the PDC World Championship earlier this month, shared the award with Michael van Gerwen.

Anderson, nicknamed ‘The Flying Scotsman’ but who lives in Burnham, also claimed the PDC Fans’ Player of the Year Award at the ceremony at London’s Dorchester Hotel.

It completes a fine year for the Scot who, as well as defeating Adrian Lewis for the world title, won the Premier League in May.
