Corey Cadby is poised to make his return to PDC competition next month after being cleared for a Visa to return to the UK.

The Australian ace, who secured his PDC Tour Card last January, has endured a frustrating spell on the sidelines for the last 12 months due to Visa complications.

Cadby enjoyed a flying start to his PDC career, winning a UK Open qualifier before going on to finish runner-up in the 2018 UK Open, but was then forced to withdrawn from a number of subsequent majors due to lengthy delays in his Three-Year Tier Two Sportsman's Visa application.

However, the 23-year-old was informed on Wednesday that his application has been successful and he is now clear to return to the UK to compete on the circuit.

In a statement posted by the Sportsman Management Company, Cadby said: "It's been an up and down 12 months, I've suffered from stress and depression and it was decided last August after there were delays in the application process that were out of our control that I should get myself in a better place before we perused the new application.

"We finally put the application in 10 days ago and today I got the great news, I'm now ready to resume my PDC career and can't wait to get back to the the UK next month and hopefully pick up where I left off 12 months ago.

"I really want to thank Mac Elkin for standing by my decisions and understanding my issues and also a massive thank you to Garry Plummer of Target Darts who has messaged me every week and helped me get through such difficult times and last but not least the PDC for all of their support."

Cadby plans to make his return at Players Championship Nine in Barnsley on April 6 as he bids to climb back up the rankings after dropping to 64th.
