PAUL Jennings produced one of the best performances of his darts life to reach the last eight of the BDO Lakeside World Championship.

Jennings hammered Ireland’s Jason Cullen 4-0 at Frimley Green in Surrey to book a quarter-final place for the second year in a row.

The 36-year-old from Hartlepool was dominant from start to finish, allowing his rival from Co Wexford just three legs in a one-sided last 16 contest at the Lakeside.

Jennings was not shy with the high scores, but his success was built on his unbelievable accuracy on the doubles.

The Headlander reeled off the first two legs before Cullen won the third.

But Jenno clinched the opening set in the next and won the opening leg in set two.

A 128 check-out, with Cullen down to double, was the highlight in set two.

Jennings started the second leg of third set with a maximum 180 en route to a 12-dart leg and the sixth time he had hit his double with one dart.

A 92 checkout in the next leg put the Poolie three sets to the good.

When Jennings won the first two legs in set four it looked like being a very early finish.

To Cullen’s credit he won the next two legs to make it 2-2 but Jennings was not quiet for long and he checked out on 86 to win the deciding leg and the set and match.

Jenno only missed two darts at doubles all match.
