Chris Dobey was announced as part of the PDC Premier League Contenders on Tuesday and will compete on Thursday in Newcastle.

This comes after Gary Anderson withdrawing from the Premier League and ‘Hollywood’ forms one of nine spots. Dobey spoke afterwards and said that he couldn’t believe it and he goes into it with confidence.

“Obviously it was a massive shock when I found out, I couldn’t believe it at first,” said Dobey.

“I’ve been to the Premier League in Newcastle many times as a fan, so to now have the chance to go up there and play really is a dream come true.

“This is an amazing opportunity for me to show the world what I’m about in front of my hometown crowd, it will be unreal to perform in front of friends and family on such a big stage.

“I’m playing well, my confidence is sky high at the minute so I will go into the game playing off confidence.”
