Durrant withdraws from World Seniors Masters; Gates replaces three-time Lakeside champion

Glen Durrant has withdrawn from participating in the World Seniors Masters. According to the WSDT organization, Durrant has indicated that he "does not feel ready" to participate in the event.

The organization immediately called for a replacement. In doing so, the choice fell on Leonard Gates, who won the World Seniors tournament Champion of Champions in Blackpool last weekend.

This year's World Seniors Masters will take place on June 24 and 25. Last year, the first edition of this tournament was won by David Cameron. The Canadian will be there again.

Also sure to participate are Phil Taylor, Robert Thornton, Martin Adams, Trina Gulliver, Bob Anderson, John Part, Neil Duff, Kevin Painter, Chris Mason and Mark Dudbridge. Four spots remain. Two will be distributed during qualifying tournaments between April 14 and 16. The leaders of two different WSDT rankings will also receive an invitation.
