Morecambe darts ace Dave Chisnall gets his Ladbrokes World Darts Championship campaign underway this weekend.

The world number seven takes on Scot John Henderson in the first round at the Alexandra Palace on Sunday, December 15.

Chisnall’s match is the opener of the evening session that starts at 7pm live on Sky Sports and if he is victorious he faces Mark Webster or Mensur Suljovic in the second round.
