John Parrott has withdrawn from the upcoming Legends event in Glenrothes, resulting in a call up for Nigel Bond.
Parrott had been due to play Jimmy White on October 31 but will now miss the tournament as he requires a hernia operation.
Bond, the 1996 British Open and 1997 Scottish Masters champion, thus steps in.
"Both Jimmy and myself are still on the main tour - although some people might have forgotten about us!" said Bond, who finished runner-up in the 1995 World Championship.
"I mean, I did play in Glasgow a few weeks ago in the Grand Prix so I am very much still around. But I suppose I am of a certain vintage - I'm a youthful 43 now - that qualifies me to be someone of another generation. And that's why I'll be in Glenrothes."
