Bulls (NL) is quietly assembling an interesting stable of darting talent. Taking a leaf from its German parent company, the Netherlands operation has quietly put together a mixed group that may lead to similar success.
The recent addition of Kim Huybrechts has added a little experience to a squad previously made up of young but successful talent from mainland Europe. Dirk Van Duijvenbode, Martin Schildler and Max Hopp are now joined by the experienced Belgian ‘Hurricane’.
The original m Bulls operation quietly put together a very impressive playing group and have steadily moved up the ‘manufacturers table’ over the last decade. We currently have them polling fifth.
Using this recipe, while adding a little Dutch seasoning, with a sprinkling of next gen talent and the influencial Jacques Nieuwlaat (from Mastercaller) seems a very careful and well structured set up.
Several of their players have already made a mark or generated interest. Karel Sedlacek and Michael Rasztovits have made a splash in the PDC and Sebastian Steyer was making decent progress with a WDF/BDO model prior to lock down.
It remains to be seen how the two branches will intersect and whether one may be a ‘feeder team’ or if the two form a healthy rivalry?
The Board Room have long admired the strategy and patience of Bulls we shall monitor this rapidly developing arm of the enterprise with interest.
