JERRY HENDRIKS, Dragutin Horvat and Tengku Shah have won places in the William Hill World Darts Championship.

Dutch ace Hendriks took victory in Sunday's West Europe Qualifier in Rosmalen, where 96 players were competing for a spot at Alexandra Palace.

Hendriks defeated Antonio Gisbers, John de Kruijf, Joppe Bakens, Michael Plooy, Ahmed Ahmaddy and Silko Visser before overcoming fellow Dutchman Jan Dekker 6-4 in the final.

Hendriks previously competed in the 2013 World Championship, where he defeated Wayne Jones in the first round in straight sets before losing out to eventual champion Phil Taylor, and he is also a former UK Open and European Championship qualifier.

Horvat, meanwhile, won through Saturday's Bull's Superleague Germany finals in Moenchengladbach to secure his World Championship debut.

Following victories over Martin Schindler and Sascha Stein in the group stage, Horvat then overcame Kevin Munch 8-7 in the semi-finals before seeing off five-time European Tour qualifier Stefan Stoyke 10-6 in the final.

The Croatian-born thrower has competed in PDC events in Germany across the past decade, and reached the quarter-finals of the International Darts Open in Riesa in September 2016.

Malaysia's Tengku Shah was the weekend's other player to win a World Championship place, as he came through the Asia Qualifier in Taipei.

Shah, 48, was the runner-up to Thanawat Gaweenuntawong in last year's knockout and won a Dartslive Soft-Tip event in Malaysia last month.
