Trio Complete International Qualifiers

November 19 2013

GINO VOS, Andree Welge and Zoran Lerchbacher have all qualified for the Ladbrokes World Darts Championship through qualifying events in Europe.

Vos was triumphant in the Western Europe Qualifier held in Italy as he ensured a second successive Alexandra Palace appearance, having lost to Adrian Lewis in the first round last December.

The Dutch youngster almost lost out in the event's preliminary round, missing five match darts before edging out compatriot Jerry Hendriks 6-5, and he went on to defeat Claudio Monaldi, Stefano Valdes, Michel Furlani and Leon de Geus to reach the final, where he won 6-3 against Dick van Dijk.

Welge, meanwhile, won the national German qualifying event for a second successive year, defeating Maik Langendorf 10-7 in the final, winning five successive legs to come from 7-5 down.

Welge had lost out to Langendorf in their round-robin fixture as the last eight were initially split into two groups, from which the top two players qualified.

Welge defeated Dragutin Horvath and Alexander Tauber in the group stage, before then seeing off Max Hopp 8-2 in the semi-finals.

The Bull's Super League Eastern Europe event was won by Mensur Suljovic, who saw off fellow Austrian Zoran Lerchbacher 10-4 in the final.

However, with Suljovic having already qualified for the World Championship through the ProTour Order of Merit, the qualifying place from the Eastern Europe event is passed to Lerchbacher, a former European Tour qualifier in Austria who will be making his Alexandra Palace debut next month.

Lerchbacher won all three of his group games in the round-robin stage, defeating Michael Rasztovits, Nandor Bezzeg and Boris Krcmar, and then overcame top Austrian youngster Rowby-John Rodriguez 8-4 in the semi-finals.

Suljovic overcame Rodriguez in, Robert Marijanovic and Csaba Nagy in winning through Group One, before winning 8-5 against Krcmar in the semi-finals and then taking the title in the decider with Lerchbacher.

The trio complete the list of International Qualifiers for the Ladbrokes World Darts Championship, with the field being finalised on Monday following the weekend's final Players Championship events in Barnsley and the subsequent PDPA Qualifier.

The PDPA Qualifier will see the winner progress directly into the first round of the World Championship, with the runner-up in the preliminary round alongside the international qualifiers.
