Scottish Duo John Henderson and Andy Boulton were among the names to secure their spots into the opening two PDC European Tour Events, after coming through Friday’s PDPA Associate Member Qualifiers.

Niko Springer and Lukas Wenig were among the names to progress through the Host Nation Qualifiers, as the weekend’s action began at Halle 39, Hildesheim.

Associate Member and Host Nation Qualifiers give the opportunity for Non-Tour Card Holders, who didn’t progress through Qualifying School earlier in the year, to compete at PDC European Tour Events throughout the year, with two spots up for grabs per qualifier.

Henderson and Boulton, who both lost their professional status at end of 2022, progressed through Qualifier Two and will compete at the European Darts Open in Leverkusen next month, as the duo defeated Former Tour Card Holders, Jack Main and Christian Kist respectively in their final round ties.

Associate Member Qualifier One saw Dutch Duo Jeroen Mioch and Martijn Dragt progress through to compete at the Baltic Sea Darts Open in Kiel later this month, as the pair defeated Andy Boulton and Jelle Klaasen respectively in their final round ties.

The opening Host Nation Qualifier saw German Duo Lukas Wenig and Niko Springer progress through to compete in Kiel, after the pair defeated fellow compatriots Nico Kurz and Pascal Wirotius respectively in their deciding round ties.


Qualifier Two saw Nico Kurz go one better and secure qualification through to Leverkusen, alongside Rene Eidams, with the duo defeating Sven Hilling and Liam Maendl-Lawrance respectively in their deciding round ties.

Saturday will see the weekend’s action continue in Hildesheim, with spots up for grabs at both European Tour Events 3 & 4 in Riesa and Munich. All live scores and results can be viewed at tv.dartconnect.com.
