Daryl Gurney continued to cement his superb career with the latest extension to his darts sponsorship arrangements. The additional 5-year deal will take their relationship to 2024.
The Northern Irishman has seen his career take off over the last few years. After reaching the qtr-final stages of the Lakeside, in 2009 & 10, Gurney switched to the PDC for 2013. After a settling in period, he seemed to really get to grips with professional darts. Daryl’s progress exploded in 2017 and had culminated in two televised major wins. The Grand Prix of 2017 together with The Players Championship of 2018 mark the high points of his efforts so far. Both came whilst following his association with Winmau.
It will be interesting to see how ‘Superchin’ progresses over the next few years. At the same time the approach taken by Winmau, in terms of products, endorsements and marketing, may also prove indicative. Currently, Gurney is their highest ranked player and one with a long career ahead of him.
DartsWorld will watch this relationship and the players’ progress with interest and wish both parties well.
