Dean travelled to Germany for the third European tour event – after qualifying for the first three events in a row, a great effort in itself!
Round 1: Brendan Dolan 6-5 Dean Winstanley
Unfortunately Dean lost in the first round, so only taking the £200 losers cheque. Still there were MANY PDC professionals who didn’t even make it that far – so onwards and upwards… and speaking of which….
Betfair World Matchplay Draw
Dean’s made a fantastic start to his PDC career, and the £9,500 he has earned so far means he qualifies for the very important Betfair World Matchplay later in July, with £400,000 total prize money on offer, and £5,000 won already through qualifying in the last 32!
Dean plays on the last night of round 1, joining his stable-mate Justin Pipe – lets hope they both can celebrate a good night’s work!
Tuesday July 24
7.10pm Justin Pipe v Joe Cullen
8.00pm Wes Newton v James Hubbard
9.00pm Gary Anderson v Dean Winstanley
