KEVIN MUNCH and Kenny Neyens have secured places in the William Hill World Darts Championship following qualifying events in Europe.

Left-hander Munch, who previously competed in the 2012 World Championship at Alexandra Palace, won the German Superleague Finals in Monchengladbach on Saturday.

He bounced back from a Group B loss to Rene Berndt by defeating Nico Kurz and Stefan Stoyke before overcoming Rene Eidams in the semi-finals.

Munch then denied Dragutin Horvat a second successive World Championship appearance by winning the final 10-3.

Sunday's Central Europe Qualifier in Maastricht saw youngster Kenny Neyens - a Development Tour event winner in 2016 and 2017 - win the all-Belgian final against Davyd Venken 6-4.

The 22-year-old from Antwerp also defeated Davy van Baelen and Wesley Plaisier in the latter stages of the event as he secured a World Championship debut.
