The County today secured a further one year deal with its shirt Sponsor the Sportsman Management Company. We have been associated with the company for the past three years where we have both enjoyed a very successful time in the darting world. The Company which has many players under their management have been at the top end of their game with results that show its immense strength within and its management style. Mark Elkin said on behalf of the company that he was delighted to continue to support the County and wished it every success in the new season and further seasons. The County wish to state their appreciation to the company and wished them continued success.
The County were very saddened to hear today of the passing of Dennis Stokes. Dennis was a former official of the County over a number of years. One of the first MCs for the County, also doing stints for other Counties within the region. Dennis over the last 15 years had also concentrated on promoting the game with local and regional Open Darts Events which were greatly appreciated by the many players that supported them. Our deepest sympathies to all the family, Gill, Bev and Chris at this sad time. RIP Dennis.
