The Artist Qualifies for Gibraltar

Kevin took part in the first two European Tour qualifiers at the weekend in Wigan, and had a good second bite at the cherry as he qualified for the Gibraltar Darts Trophy.  

Kevin was disappointed with his performance in the early afternoon German darts champs qualifier, but he got his head back together and put on a much better show in the 2nd event of a LONG day.  Kevin’s qualifying game was against recent BDO switcher Alan Norris, who had already hit a 9 darter that day, so was in great form himself.
