Winstanley qualifies for money-rich European Tour event

PROFESSIONAL darts ace Dean Winstanley has booked his spot at the second European Tour event.

Wins over Aaron Turner (6-5) and Mark Jones (6-2) in Friday’s qualifiers ensured the Buxton-based star will line-up at the money-rich tour event in Germany next month.

Winstanley was also in action on Saturday, losing in the first round of the Player Championship pro-tour event before withdrawing from the remainder of the weekend’s proceedings due to illness.
