1:00pm Wednesday 18th April 2012 in Sport
TERRY Jenkins will play qualifier Dietmar Burger in the first round of the Austrian Open later this month.
The Ledbury darts ace is seeded 11th for the inaugural PDC European Tour event in Wiener Neustadt from April 27 to 29.
Jenkins arrowed his way to £2,000 after reaching the semi-finals of Saturday’s Speedy Services UK Open Qualifier in Barnsley.
Jenkins secured wins over James Wade (6-3), Joe Cullen (6-3), Prakash Jiwa (6-2), Mark Walsh (6-5), Robert Thornton (6-5) and James Richardson (6-5).
However, he lost 6-4 in the last-four to Raymond van Barneveld, who won both qualifiers in Yorkshire.
Jenkins suffered a first-round exit in Sunday’s event, going down 6-5 to Vincent van der Voort after defeating Tom Jones 6-2.
