One name that may come as a surprise to you all is the inclusion of Stephen Bunting. After winning the 2014 Lakeside World Championship, Bunting made the switch to the PDC. The expectation was high and the Merseyside star would fulfil, with some sensational performances.

Quarter-final runs at the Grand Slam of Darts and European Championship were preceded by a semi-final appearance at the World Grand Prix, losing out to Michael van Gerwen. ‘The Bullet’ would also reach a World Championship quarter-final on debut, being reduced to tears as he was highly praised by opponent Raymond van Barneveld in the Dutchman’s post-match interview.

Overall, Bunting’s year may not have had a stand-out moment, was a glimmering display of consistency was something that many lacked. Let’s hope Bunting can get back to his brilliant best sometime soon.
