Template - Date: European Tour 9 & 10 UK Qualifiers

The quartet secured their places in September’s HappyBet European Darts Grand Prix and October’s HappyBet German Darts Championship as they came through a field of PDC Tour Card Holders and PDPA Associate Members to claim three of the 20 spots available in each event.

Dolan’s double qualification was a belated birthday present after he turned 43 on Tuesday, while Boulton knocked out reigning World Grand Prix champion Robert Thornton and Jamie Caven on the night as he enjoyed double success.

Green – a BetVictor World Matchplay qualifier last month – completed the trio of players to secure places in both European Tour events as he defeated Steve Hine, Sam Head, Justin Bradshaw and Luke Woodhouse on the night.

2016 PDC Unicorn Challenge Tour event winner Taylor, meanwhile, will make his European Tour debut in Sindelfingen after he defeated Kevin Thomas, Nick Fullwell and Ronnie Baxter.

The qualifiers for the European Darts Grand Prix include three other players who will be making their European Tour debuts, Ireland’s Mick McGowan, Blackpool youngster Scott Dale and Wales’ Robert Owen, who knocked out Kevin Painter in his decider.

Former World Youth Champions James Hubbard and Arron Monk have qualified for European Tour events for the first time in one and two years respectively, with former Challenge Tour event winner Jay Foreman also making his first appearance since 2014 and left-hander Alan Tabern set to end a three-year absence.

Former European Tour event winner Steve Beaton, 2016 Dutch Darts Masters runner-up Daryl Gurney, Wales’ Jonny Clayton, World Youth Championship finalist Nathan Aspinall, Mark Frost, Joe Murnan, James Wilson, Darren Webster and South Africa’s Devon Petersen completed the qualifiers for the Sindelfingen event.

The event also featured a nine-dart finish from Steve Brown to complete his 6-4 first round win over James Richardson, although he then lost out 6-5 to Head.

Two former European Tour winners, Justin Pipe and Mervyn King, were amongst the German Darts Championship qualifiers, alongside former Players Championship Finals winner Kevin Painter and former Lakeside Champion Mark Webster.

Australia’s Kyle Anderson, experienced Englishmen Mark Walsh, Andy Smith, Steve West, Steve Hine, Peter Hudson and Darren Johnson also qualified, while left-hander Eddie Dootson dropped only five legs in three games to secure a place in his second European Tour event.

Youngster David Pallett, a European Tour semi-finalist last year, edged out Petersen to qualify for the Hildesheim event, while emerging Chris Dobey saw off Richardson and Baxter to secure his spot.

Ted Evetts – the youngster from Warwickshire who won a PDC Tour Card in January – enjoyed wins over Ricky Evans and Monk as he earned his European Tour debut.

The HappyBet European Darts Grand Prix will take place from September 16-18 at the Glaspalast in Sindelfingen, Germany and is the ninth of the year’s £115,000 tournaments – completing a September treble of three European Tour events in successive weekends.

The year’s tenth tournament then sees the HappyBet German Darts Championship held from October 14-16 at Halle 39 in Hildesheim, Germany.
