19th January 2023

When Corey Cadby returns to Europe to begin life back on the PDC Tour after coming through Q-School, he may want to do his own packing this time.

The Australian, once dubbed a future world champion during his previous stint on the Tour, is back at the top tier of darts getting his life back on track following a string of personal problems.

‘The King’ regained his place by winning a day’s play during the Final Stage of European Q-School in Germany. It was a fantastic achievement for Cadby, who once defeated Phil Taylor in a World Series match, and darts fans are eagerly anticipating his match-ups against the likes of Michael van Gerwen, Gerwyn Price and new world champion Michael Smith.

Cadby did particularly well to come through Q-School as he arrived missing some rather essential items, both for darts and everyday life, after letting his mum pack his case.

“My mum packed by bag, thanks mum!,” he said in an interview with The Sportsman Management Company. “She missed my shoes, my dart case. She packed me one pair of stems, one pair of flights, one set of darts, one set of socks.”

However, those missing items did not hinder Cadby, who performed at a high level throughout the week in Kalkar, In fact, the darting gods seemed to be on his side, with his favourite number proving of 13 proving something of a ‘lucky’ omen.

“I’ve got 13 tattooed on me in a couple of places, it’s my favourite number,” he explained. “My entry number was 13, the table I was sitting at was 13, the board in the final was 13.”

He also sealed his return to the PDC Tour on Friday the 13th. Cadby, a strong believer in omens, added: “The other day, we were having dinner and my brother’s funeral song came on. So I believe it’s an omen.”

On his hopes for his first year back on the Tour, Cadby said: “Solid performance all round, make a few quid here and there, that’s always going to be good.

“But just to get my mind, confidence and arrogance back. Not so much arrogance, but my ability to know that I’m going to win.”
