Wes Newton and Gary Anderson are eliminated from the Premier League after losing their respective matches in Brighton on Thursday night.

Wes Newton and Gary Anderson have been eliminated from the Premier League after they finished in the bottom two places of the 10-man table.

Both players needed to win to stand any chance of survival, but Newton fell to a 7-5 defeat to Andy Hamilton, while Anderson was overpowered by James Wade, with the left-hander earning a 7-3 win.

Those results ensured that Adrian Lewis retained his place in the league, despite losing 7-2 to Dutchman Raymond van Barneveld.

Simon Whitlock had also found his place at risk at the beginning of the night, but other results meant that his 7-3 defeat to Michael van Gerwen didn't signal his exit from the competition.

In the other game of the night, Robert Thornton produced a scintillating display to earn a 7-4 triumph over Phil Taylor, who slips to fifth place in the table.
