New deal for Anderson!
Aussie star Kyle Anderson has been rewarded with a new long-term contract with Team Unicorn.
Kyle has proved to be a huge hit over the last 12 months since taking the gamble to play the PDC tour as a full-time professional.
He is on the brink of breaking into the world’s top 32 and in June he will represent Australia for the first time at the World Cup of Darts.
Anderson has again taken the brave decision to leave his family back home in Perth, after recently getting married to long-term partner Tara, and he will base himself in the UK as he follows his dream to claim a place in the top 10 and win big titles.
“Signing again with Unicorn is really exciting for me,” he said. “My first two years with the company have been brilliant. I love the family atmosphere and they have looked after me so well. Here’s to an exciting future but I am definitely in the right place!”
Anderson has also signed with a new representative – The Sportsman Management Company run by Mac Elkin. They also look after fellow Unicorn stars Kim and Ronny Huybrechts and young Dimitri van den Bergh.
Unicorn Managing Director Edward Lowy has been very impressed with Anderson. “Hats off to Kyle for sticking on the PDC tour so far from home. We admire his determination immensely.”
He added: “Kyle believes in himself and we believe in him. We are delighted to extend our association and look forward to seeing his undoubted talent drive him up the rankings to further success.”
The 28-year-old has competed in the last four World Championships and memorably hit a 9 darter at the Alexandra Palace in 2013.
And he has already secured his spot at the next TV ‘Major’ – the UK Open Finals in Minehead next month. Kyle reached the quarter-finals of the second UK Open qualifying event earlier this month.
The future certainly looks bright!
