MICK McGOWAN and Kevin Burness will compete for a place in the William Hill World Darts Championship next month after reaching the Tom Kirby Memorial Irish Matchplay final.
Saturday saw the early rounds of the annual championship in Tramore take place as players from the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland began the challenge for the top domestic honour.
Two-time champion McGowan remains on course to recapture the title he previously won in 2015 and 2016 as he won through to the decider.
Newtownards-based Burness, 52, surpassed his run to the 2012 semi-finals as he progressed to face McGowan at the Citywest Hotel on Saturday October 6.
The Irish Matchplay final will be held ahead of the Unibet World Grand Prix final on stage at the Citywest Hotel, with the winner progressing to the World Championship.
