Taking to social media, the darts ace posted four photos of his new shirts, writing: "A massive thank you to @Matt_B_Loxley at @LoxleyDarts for new shirts for next season and the Worlds!

And despite Bates' indecision over which shirt he liked better, there were plenty of fans keen to let the 20-year-old know they were fans of his new clobber. One commented on the post: "Class these, first one for me."

A second added: "Both minters!! Good luck at the worlds." A third said: "Both look nice but I prefer the white sleeved." A fourth wrote: "the blue personally but id be happy with either Owen." And the fifth said: "Both are great but I think no 2 looks better."

Sadly for fans, Bates won't be allowed to use his usual nickname, 'The Master', at the Ally Pally, after having been advised to change it by the darts governing body. Bates said: "I was advised by the PDC to change my nickname and I fully respect their decision and completely understand why they've made the decision they have."

And he has also confirmed that he won't be adopting a new nickname either for the PDC Championships either. "No, I won't have a new nickname for the World Championships, that's for sure," Bates told the MODUS Super Series at the beginning of December.
