Brendan Dolan, Jamie Caven and Darren Webster claimed the final three spots in the field for the Grand Slam of Darts in Wolverhampton on Monday in the PDC qualifers in Wigan on a day in which former World Champions John Part, Richie Burnett, Jelle Klaasen and Steve Beaton all bowed out in the qualifiers.
“History maker” Dolan beat little known Barry Tyle 4-2 in the second round of qualifying before he edged past Welshman Barrie Bates in the third round. He then won his next four matches against Harry Ward, Mark Forman, Matt Clark and Andy Smith without dropping a leg to seal his place in the field for the Grand Slam of Darts in Wolverhampton.
Jamie Caven on the other hand managed wins over David Dodds, Mick Bushby, Brett Claydon and John Bowles without dropping a leg at all to make it to the last 12. “Jabba” then managed to edge past Dutchman Mike Zuydwijk 4-3 before he breezed past Matthew Edgar 4-0 to qualify for the Grand Slam of Darts in Wolverhampton.
Darren Webster begin the qualifiers in Wigan really well with a 4-0 win over Curtis Hammond. He then managed to edge past “Rockstar” Joe Cullen 4-3. He then managed further wins over Ben Ward, Kurt Parry, Durk van Duijvenbode before beating 1996 BDO World Champion Steve Beaton 4-0 to qualify for the Grand Slam of Darts in Wolverhampton.
