Taylor quit the sport earlier this year after losing to Rob Cross in the 2018 PDC World Championship final.

And while he has hinted at a possible return for the next world tournament, the Stoke on Trent star has stuck to his decision.

But the 58-year-old still remains a big draw and he’s sure to pack them in when competing in the DeckDirect Showdown at the Queen Elizabeth Hall, Oldham on Saturday, October 20.

Taylor will be joined by Stockport’s three-times PDC World Championship semi-finalist Darryl ‘The Dazzler’ Fitton and twice BDO world champion Glen Durrant from Middlesbrough.

The supporting cast includes:  Callum Loose, David Evans, Jim Moston and Bradley Brooks.

Tickets cost £25 or £55 (platinum, including meet and greet). For further details ring 0161 770 4083.
