Trio Secure World Championship Spots

ANTHONY FORDE, Miloslav Navratil and Ashfaque Sayed are the latest players to secure their places in the 2008 World Darts Championship.

Forde has won the 2007 Caribbean & South American Masters, defeating defending champion Vivekanand Dyal in the final.

He will now take a place in the Preliminary Round of the World Championship in December, the second time he has competed in the event.

Forde, from Bridgetown, Barbados, won the 2004 Caribbean & South American Masters and went on to lose 3-2 to John Verwey in the World Championship.

Czech Republic player Miloslav Navratil will represent Eastern Europe in the World Championship.

The Czech international won Friday's Eastern European Qualifier in Prague, defeating Petr Tous 7-2 in the final to become his country's first representative in the event.

Over 60 players from the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia and Poland attended the inaugural qualifying event.

Ashfaque Sayed will be the first Indian representative in the World Championship, after accepting the Taj TV Wildcard for the tournament.

Sayed, a 43-year-old from Pune, near Mumbai, is the number one ranked player in India and won the National Singles title for a fourth successive year in June.

The trio will compete in the Preliminary Round at the World Championship this December, against the likes of China's Shi Yongsheng, New Zealand's Alan Bolton and Philippines qualifier Rizal 'Jojo' Barellano.
