Snakebite withdraws from the World Cup
Peter Wright has withdrawn himself from selection for the Scotland team in next week’s PDC Betway World Cup of Darts.
The Mendham-based thrower teamed up with Gary Anderson to reach the final of the pairs event last year, but will play no part in the 2016 staging of the four-day event in Frankfurt, which starts on Thursday.
Wright is the second highest-ranked Scot in the PDC Order of Merit and is therefore eligible to team up with Anderson again, but has this week announced he is unavailable for selection.
n Wright was set to face Michael van Gerwen in the Dubai Darts Masters quarter-finals yesterday.
