Players Championship 9 & 10: Entries confirmed!

Barney Cadby

The entries for this weekend’s Players Championship double-header in Wigan have been confirmed, but there are a few notable absentees.

Raymond van Barneveld will be the highest-profile absentee this weekend. The five-time world champion has only competed in four of the opening eight events; reaching the last 16 of Players Championship Eight. However, RvB has opted to focus his efforts on the Premier League, with the league season coming to its conclusion.

Elsewhere, Corey Cadby will also not be present at the Robin Park Tennis Centre. The former World Youth champion has enjoyed a profitable start to life on the PDC circuit, winning a UK Open qualifier, reaching the final of Players Championship Two and finishing as runner-up at March’s Coral UK Open.

Nevertheless, after Cadby’s run to the final in Minehead, he returned home to Australia ahead of his wedding and has remained Down Under for the last six weeks. Despite this, ‘The King’ has still been competing on the DPA circuit, winning four of the six events he’s featured in.

Nine-time major finalist Terry Jenkins will also miss this weekend’s double-header in Wigan. ‘The Bull’ made his return to the Pro Tour circuit this year after announcing his retirement at the end of 2016, and he’s recorded two last 16 appearances across the eight Players Championship events so far this season.

Other tour-card holders skipping this weekend’s action include Canadian World Cup representative John Norman Jr, Ireland’s Mick McGowan, Hong Kong ace Ting-Chi Royden Lam and Germany’s Maik Langendorf.

Lee Bryant’s Pro Tour hiatus also continues. He failed to register any prize money throughout the opening four Players Championship events and has not competed on the PDC circuit since early March. Meanwhile, 2017 Pro Tour finalist Richard North will sit out Sunday’s proceedings, where he’ll be replaced by talented youngster Ted Evetts.

With eight tour-card holders skipping both days, they’ll be replaced by the highest ranked players on the Challenge Tour Order of Merit. That list includes Diogo Portela, Jarred Cole, Jason Cullen, Jason Lowe, John Davey, Martin Atkins, Michael Barnard and Simon Preston, with Evetts featuring in Sunday’s event only.

Meanwhile, world number one Michael van Gerwen will make his return after missing the most recent double-header in Barnsley. ‘The Green Machine’ has only competed in four of the eight events this year, but he’s won three of those to secure top spot on the Players Championship Order of Merit.

Dave Chisnall is also set to feature, after he was forced to pull out of last weekend’s European Tour event in Austria due to illness. The full list of entries for both events can be viewed below.
