Kleermaker Hits Out At BDO Chairman
Rising BDO star, Martijn Kleermaker has hit out at BDO Chairman, Des Jacklin, stating “that man is simply not suitable for his position”.
The Dutchman stated that he was unhappy about the lack of clarity for the BDO World Trophy in particular. Kleermaker also suggested that Jacklin makes his own financial gain from tournaments, commenting “he can promote that tournament in Cyprus very well….As long as his wallet is involved”.
The BDO World Trophy plans were finally announced on the same day of Kleermaker’s outburst.
28 year old Kleermaker has made good progress in the BDO this year, and won the Welsh Open in May. Quite how his comments will go down is unclear, but disciplinary action from the BDO is surely imminent.
