Keegan Brown, from Newport, Isle of Wight, through to third round of World Championships.

But an excellent 108 check-out by 26 year old Brown helped him race through the second set to win it 3-0.

The former World Youth Champion, of Newport, Isle of Wight, was buoyed by his performance in the second set and duly grabbed the third after he kicked it off a 111 check-out, his springboard for a 3-1 win.

The Islander, who averaged 82.66 at the oche, claimed the final set by the same margin to send the Dutchman packing. 

Brown also scored two maximums and finished with a solid ten doubles from a possible 23 visits record. 

He will face James Wade in the third round on Sunday afternoon, December 23. Coverage can be seen live on Sky Sports from 12.30pm.
