West close to securing World Matchplay spot as race to the Winter Gardens hots up
Steve West had a good run at the Gibraltar Darts Trophy reaching the semi-finals for the first time in a European Tour event. World Matchplay qualification also seems likely as a result now for a second successive year.
’Simply’ currently sits 9th in the rankings ahead of the cut off for the World Matchplay . He is qualified for the next European Tour event so is about safe.
Players that might not include Jelle Klaasen & Keegan Brown with Josh Payne & Richard North on the verge of overtaking them.
Alan Norris in the main Order of Merit could also miss out on a World Matchplay spot with not a lot between him, Adrian Lewis & Joe Cullen.
