Jenny Fordham Wiki – Jenny Fordham Biography
Jenny Fordham is the wife of Andy Fordham, was an English professional darts player. He won the 2004 BDO World Darts Championship and the 1999 Winmau World Masters.
Fordham made his first appearance on the Lakeside stage at the 1995 BDO World Darts Championship and reached the semi-finals before losing to Richie Burnett. Another semi-final loss followed in 1996, this time to Steve Beaton. On both occasions, his victor went on to claim the title. Second-round defeats followed in 1997 (to Marshall James) and 1998 (to Raymond van Barneveld) before Fordham reached the semifinal stage of the World Championship for the third time in 1999 but was defeated by Ronnie Baxter.
His 2000 campaign ended in the quarterfinals at the hands of Chris Mason and his fourth loss in the semifinals in 2001 came to Ted Hankey. In 2002 and 2003 he came out in the first and second rounds respectively.
Fordham finally put an end to the “almost man” reputation at the 2004 World Championship. His career saw him win his first game comfortably, 3-0 against qualifier Brian Derbyshire. He then beat former Masters champion Tony West 3-0, and mocked a 9-dart leg in the third set. He defeated Darryl Fitton in the quarterfinals 5-4, and then stunned Van Barneveld, the defending world champion and strong tournament favorite, recovering from 0-3 and 2-4 down to win the match 5-4, in which it is still considered one of the most dramatic and exciting matches in BDO history.
