Phil Taylor calls for Leighton Bennett to be included in this year’s Grand Slam of Darts

Phil Taylor has known for feeling Leighton Bennett to be contained in Wolverhampton in this year’s Grand Slam of Darts.
Bennett slipped by becoming the youngest world champion in January, defeating the Nathan Girvan 3-0 at the Lakeside of Scotland to win the BDO World Youth Championship.
The schoolboy nicknamed’Boom Boom’ has also scooped six of those 10 events around the Junior Darts Corporation circuit and has enjoyed success on the BDO Tour.
PDC chairman Barry Hearn has urged Bennett to be included by that the BDO as one of their eight representatives for November event and speculation is mounting that the 13-year-old is being considered for choice.
The Lincolnshire-born star has risen to 17th above the likes of Scott Waites and Martin Adams, also Taylor considers Bennett addition could create massive interest.
“I am not a major dart-watcher,” Taylor told Sky Sports.
“Someone just asked me a question regarding young Leighton Bennett and if have a wildcard to Wolverhampton?
“My response was that I really don’t watch the darts on TV but if Leighton Bennett gets a wildcard I will see it since he is exciting. He is a nightmare to play.”
Taylor retired from competitive action after the 2018 World Championship, however Bennett has been faced by the 16-time world champion twice on the exhibition circuit in recent months and he has experienced mixed fortunes.
‘The’ Power’ defeated the child 10-7 in the Tower of London in March, although Bennett acquired his revenge, beating the 59-year-old 4-1 in the SAP Darts Slam at Frankfurt back .
“I’ve played with him a few times and he’s an absolute nightmare, because he’s a young lad and he’s good,” Taylor added.
“He has no fear in him whatsoever. I really like that in him.”
