Darts star Jenkins takes aim at PDC and says management are bang out of order
Darts star Andy Jenkins has taken aim at the Professional Darts Corporation (PDC) by saying the organisers are “bang out of order”.
The 51-year-old beat Bob Anderson to reach the last-16 of the World Seniors Darts Championship on Friday. Rocky breezed past Anderson, the oldest player in the over-50s competition at 75, by only allowing his opponent one set.
But the former PDC World Championship semi-finalist turned his attention to criticising the PDC shortly after his victory at the Circus Tavern, claiming that the organisation – chaired by Eddie Hearn – are not taking the amateur game seriously.

He suggested that their lack of attention reflects in the gruelling Challenge Tour, which involves multiple events in a single day.
Jenkins said: "My game is enjoying it, my game is playing MODUS (Super Series), Challenge Tour, not playing ProTour because you can get bashed up every week and I think they need to find out the amateur game is just as good as the pro game.
"I went to Q-School to try and play but they're just looking at the top end of darts, they're not looking at the mediocre but when certain people get through, they want to praise that up.

"They've obviously changed the ProTour to 1pm. Now we're playing Challenge Tour two in one day but why. Getting up at 9am, give us a break. I think the management are bang out of order. I can't say what I want to think and Matt Porter hello."
Jenkins secured his qualification through the World Seniors tour rankings and has enjoyed a fine return to form of late. He most notably picked up a PDC Challenge Tour title last year.
And he will next face Richie Howson at a venue which holds memories of both a win and a thrashing to Raymond van Barneveld.
