Mendham’s Peter Wright will make his Premier League Darts debut against Wes Newton, in week one, in Liverpool, on February 6.

The World Championship runner-up will face Phil Taylor in week three in Belfast and Michael van Gerwen, five weeks later, in Dublin.

The first nine league nights in this year’s Premier League Darts season will see the ten players face each other once each before the bottom two players are eliminated following “Judgement Night” in Cardiff.

The Suffolk-based Scot will face Dave Chisnall in Bournemouth (week two), Adrian Lewis (Glasgow, week four), Robert Thornton (Exeter, week five), Simon Whitlock (Nottingham, week six), Raymond van Barneveld (Week seven, Leeds) and Gary Anderson (Cardiff, week nine).

Following Week Nine, the bottom two players from the league table are eliminated. Revised fixtures for Weeks Ten-15 will be announced following Week Nine.
