Peter Wright has withdrawn from the 2022 Cazoo Players Championship Finals, and will be replaced by Gian van Veen.

Wright claimed glory in the Players Championship Finals for the first time a year ago, prevailing in a dramatic final against Ryan Searle at Butlin’s Minehead Resort.

The World Champion had been set to take on European Championship winner Ross Smith in a blockbuster first round tie in this year’s event on Friday November 25.

However, Wright has withdrawn from the event for family reasons as wife Joanne continues to receive treatment following a gallbladder operation.

Under PDC rules, Wright is replaced directly in the draw by the next-ranked player from the 2022 Players Championship Order of Merit, meaning that Dutch prospect Van Veen will now compete in Minehead.
