Meanwhile, Dutchman Richard Veenstra, England’s Dave Parletti and Welshman Wayne Warren will all make their Grand Slam debuts next month.

The Grand Slam of Darts sees the 32 players split into eight groups of four players for the round-robin phase, with the top two players from each group then progressing to the knockout stage from the last 32 onwards.

The tournament will be held from November 9-17 at the Aldersley Leisure Village. Tickets are available through SeeTickets at pdc.seetickets.com and the Midland Box Office via www.wolvescivic.co.uk.
