New Australian darting star Corey Cadby is all set for his PDC debut, after qualifying for the Sydney Darts Masters. The 21-year-old is yet to play on a televised stage, but will now compete against the cream of the PDC. The Tasmanian-born youngster moved to the mainland, to pursue his dream emulating Kyle Anderson and Simon Whitlock by joining the full PDC tour. Cadby is already showing a maturity above his years, having won seven DPA Australian Grand Prix events and tops the domestic ranking table.
When speaking to the media ahead of his TV debut, Cadby said “I’m extremely proud of myself for what I’ve achieved this year.
“The talent that Australia has is incredible so to be winning events on the DPA circuit is fantastic.
“Part of the reason I moved to the mainland was to play darts, knowing there were a lot more competitions, and qualifying for Sydney and also Perth later in August is a massive part of my darting career.
“It’s everyone’s dream to play on TV and to play against the world’s best. They’re all professionals but if I lose I won’t be going out without a fight.
“I’m going up on the stage to show Australia and the world what I’m capable of. Simon Whitlock’s someone I have looked up to and cheered for whilst growing up, but now that Kyle Anderson’s doing it too it’s fantastic.
“There’s nothing better than watching a mate achieve his dream, and he’s doing us all proud. It goes to show everyone that Australian darters have the ability to be world class!” (Quote taken pdc.tv)
