The next Associate Member Qualifier was concluded this past weekend with Wessel Nijman and Stefan Bellmont both qualifying for the Czech Darts Open.
Nijman is a former Development Tour winner and the young Dutchman will make his debut on the European Tour as a result. He saw off Geert de Vos in a 6-3 win with only a 77 average.
He also saw off the likes of Michael Plooy in a 6-4 win and Jeffrey Bekema in a 6-2 win.
Bellmont only recently made his European Tour debut and received a tough draw in Jeffrey de Zwaan on his debut and he will return after seeing off Manfred Bilderl 6-5.
The likes of Diogo Portela and Cody Harris were also involved but received tough draws late on against De Vos and Michael Rasztovits halting their progression.
