Neyens wins PDC European Challenge Tour Event Six

Kenny Neyens is the final winner of the opening weekend of PDC European Challenge Tour action after edging past Lukas Wenig in the final of Event Six.

Neyens adds to two prior Development Tour triumphs but it is his first title since 2017.

He came through some tough tests in the latter stages including Jitse van der Wal (5-0), Matt Campbell (5-2), Mario Vandenbogaerde (5-2) before winning the final.

He joins Campbell's double title win, Kevin Doets, Steven Noster and Rowby-John Rodriguez as victors this weekend with the Associate Member qualifier for the European Tour alongside the Super Series tomorrow set to end it off.

Due to travel restrictions still in place due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the Challenge Tour has been split this year into a separate circuit for both British and European players.

The winners of both tours will be eligible to participate in the upcoming World Darts Championship and will receive a PDC Tour Card for 2022 and 2023.

The highest-ranking players on the PDC Challenge Tour Order of Merit qualify for the reserve spots at the Players Championship tournaments.
