Dobey has kick started his year in good style qualifying for the UK Open last weekend and now qualifying for the first two European events of the year in Leverkusen and Munich.
The first qualifying event saw him defeat Matt Padgett 6-3 before a nail biting match against in form Matthew Edgar. Chris was 5-2 down and battled his way back to 5-5 before taking out a 13 dart leg to secure qualification.
He carried on his form into the second qualifying event defeating Robert Owen and Brendan Dolan to guarantee his place in Munich.
The other North-East boys came close to qualifying with Joyce and Rydz running into Van Barneveld and Lewis in their draws. Adam Hunt was one leg away from qualifying for Munich but was pipped at the post by Paul Rowley.
Chris, Adam and Ryan Joyce are in action this weekend in PDC Players Championship 1 & 2
ET1 – European Darts Open
March 23-25, Leverkusen
ET2 – German Darts Grand Prix
