Players Championship 10 Draw: Raymond van Barneveld and Stephen Bunting meet in first round battle of former world champions

Former world champions Raymond van Barneveld and Stephen Bunting will face each other in the first round of Players Championship 10 in Barnsley today.

The pair’s most famous meeting was that 2015 World Championship quarter-final, which van Barneveld won 5-4 in a deciding set.

Another stand-out tie from the last 128 is newly-crowned UK Open champion Nathan Aspinall against three-time BDO world champion Glen Durrant.

Yesterday’s Players Championship 9 winner James Wade starts his bid for back-to-back titles against Jose Justicia.

World number two Rob Cross has pulled out of today’s event through illness, and has been replaced by Diogo Portela in the draw.
