The Austrian Rusty-Jake Rodriguez provided the opposition at Alexandra Palace.

Menzies won 3-0 and secured a place in the second round.

β€œI was working but it kind of calmed me down,” Menzies said after his win.

β€œIt made me realize that darts is a hobby and a very happy one too.”

The Scot said he changed waste in a pool, repaired a burst water pipe and repaired a bathroom during his shift.

He will face Dave Chisnall in the next round of the competition.
