Yesterdays finalist Peter Wright was the big casualty in round 1 of Players Championships 20.
In the last event before the Grand Prix begins this weekend, Wright fell at the first hurdle to ‘Rapid’ Ricky Evans 6-3.  Evans found himself in Wrights position yesterday, narrowly losing to one of the form players on tour Kyle Anderson 6-5, but rectified his early exit in defeating the world number 2. He no faces former Players Championship finals winner Paul Nicholson in the next round.
Elsewhere, Raymond van Barneveld has gotten the better of Kim Huybrechts, the Dutchman winning that one 6-4. Jelle Klassen, Cristo Reyes, Joe Cullen and Daryl Gurney complete the list of surprise early losers. Former World Championship finalist Kirk Shepperd the man to see off Premier League Hopeful Daryl Gurney.
