Hubbard, who won the PDC Unicorn World Youth Championship final last month, continued his impressive form on the professional tour by booking his place in the £82,000 tournament, which will be held in Dusseldorf.

The Norfolk youngster beat Richie Howson 6-4 to qualify after receiving a bye in the first round.

Monk followed up a strong showing at the Speedy Services UK Open with victories over Jack Hill and Chris Mason, to ensure he was amongst the 20 UK qualifiers for the European Darts Open.

Jenkins continued his return to form, as he reached his second consecutive European Tour Event, beating Paul Barham and James Richardson to claim his place in Dusseldorf on July 6 for the three day event.

A further eight players will come through the European Qualifier in Berlin next weekend, with the final four competitors coming from a Home Nation Qualifier also to take place in Berlin.

The 32 qualifiers will be drawn against the leading 32 players from the PDC Order of Merit who have entered the tournament for the first round.
