Dekker & Justicia earn World Championship spots

Jan Dekker and Jose Justicia have secured places in the William Hill World Darts Championship through qualifying events throughout Europe.

Dekker secured his fourth appearance at Alexandra Palace with a narrow 6-5 win over fellow Dutchman Derk Telnekes in the final of the West Europe Qualifier in Leeuwarden.

Telnekes had led 5-3, but saw Dekker survive missed match darts as a 117 checkout secured a deciding leg, which he won with a superb 11-darter.
