The Return of the King as Corey Cadby aims to return to PDC Tour in 2023, enters European Q-School in January

With the PDC World Darts Championship coming up, one story of what if is Corey 'The King' Cadby who after an incredible rise including reaching the final of the UK Open in 2018 fell off the darting map.

But that potential could yet be realized with Cadby confirmed in a shock move to play European Q-School in January as he aims to return to the PDC Tour in 2023.

The Sportsman Management Company ran by Mac Elkin look after the former World Youth Champion and announced it on social media on Monday afternoon with the return dubbed in similar vein to Harold Bishop in Neighbours.

Back in May, there were murmurings of a return for Cadby after he replied to a comment on a Facebook group saying that the return has done him good and that he will return soon.

Since then, Cadby has entered multiple local tournaments including reaching a WDF Quarter-Final in Tasmania albeit not played in any DPA competition or attempted World Series qualification but will now be the top name in Germany in January attempting to seal a Tour Card.

Famously Cadby caused a stir in August 2016 when he defeated Phil Taylor 6-2 at the Perth Masters. Later that year, he also won the PDC World Youth Championship by beating Dutchman Berry van Peer in the final.

A new top talent seemed to have emerged, especially after The King reached the final of the UK Open in 2018. In it, however, he lost 11-7 to Gary Anderson. Earlier in the year, he had also captured a Tour Card.

Afterwards Cadby had to deal with personal problems and visa issues. The Australian decided to voluntarily surrender his Tour Card in early 2020, although he was in the top-64 of the world rankings at the time.

Doing an interview with Phill Barrs during lockdown, he spoke about his prior mistakes and his want to not only return but put it right but he has not showed serious signs of a return until now.
