Lewis handed Premier League place
Adrian Lewis
Adrian Lewis will make his Premier League debut this year after receiving a wildcard into the elite competition.

Raymond van Barneveld, Phil Taylor, Colin Lloyd, Dennis Priestley, Roland Scholten, Peter Manley and Terry Jenkins make up the eight-man line-up.

Englishman Lewis, the 21-year-old protege of 13-time world champion Taylor, said: "I'm over the moon to have been given this place."

The league will begin on 1 February in Plymouth and runs for 14 weeks.

There had been speculation that a newcomer to the Professional Darts Corporation could be invited in the way Van Barneveld was last year.

Three top Dutch stars - Jelle Klaasen, Michael van Gerwen and Vincent van der Voort - this week joined the PDC from the British Darts Organisation, but they have been overlooked in favour of Lewis.
