GARY ANDERSON will miss the McCoy’s Premier League Darts’ visit to Cardiff this Thursday following the recent death of his father.

The reigning Premier League Darts champion will be unable to compete at the Motorpoint Arena in Cardiff as he attends his father’s funeral in Scotland.

As a result, World Champion Adrian Lewis will now play twice in front of the sell-out crowd in Cardiff, meeting Andy Hamilton in the night’s first game before returning to the stage to face Raymond van Barneveld in the fourth match.

Anderson will repay the favour at Sheffield’s Motorpoint Arena on April 12, when he takes on James Wade in the night’s opening game and then plays Hamilton in the final game.

This Thursday’s McCoy’s Premier League Darts in Cardiff will be preceded at 7pm by a minute’s applause in memory of the late Jocky Wilson, the two-time World Champion who passed away on Saturday night.

The amended fixtures are now:
Week Eight
March 29 – Motorpoint Arena, Cardiff

Adrian Lewis v Andy Hamilton
James Wade v Simon Whitlock
Kevin Painter v Phil Taylor
Raymond van Barneveld v Adrian Lewis
Tickets: SOLD OUT

Week Ten
