Players Championship 9 Draw: Corey Cadby starts return to action against James Richardson in first round in Barnsley; Raymond van Barneveld also in the field

Corey Cadby has been drawn against James Richardson in the first round of Players Championship 9, as the former PDC world youth champion makes his return to action on the PDC circuit after a year-long absence.

The Australian’s last ranking-event appearance was a run to the final of the UK Open, back in March of 2018, and since then visa problems have kept Cadby away from the oche in the UK.

Raymond van Barneveld is also in the 128-player field at the Barnsley Metrodome today. The five-time world champion announced his immediate retirement in Rotterdam only nine days ago, before quickly reversing his decision.

Barney takes on Gary Eastwood, while a host of big names, including Michael van Gerwen, Gary Anderson, Gerwyn Price and Daryl Gurney are all missing this weekend.
