MDA Promotions and their darts management partners Mitchell Promotions are pleased to be able to announce that their darts management has extended to a 3rd player, with their second signing in 2012. Joining world number 21 Justin Pipe (website), and ex BDO no. 1 Dean Winstanley (website), is former BDO Masters finalist Stuart Kellett, who won his PDC tour card at the start of 2012.
“After a short but successful period in the BDO, I felt the time was right to have a crack at the PDC. The Q school was tough, so I was very happy to achieve my pro tour card on the 2nd day where I played some great darts.
I’ve beaten the best in the BDO but I know there is still a lot of improvement still to come from me and can’t wait to start proving that in the PDC from now on. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do and it’s my ambition to make a living out of the game.
Now, thanks to MDA Promotions and Mitchell Promotions giving me the opportunity to compete in all the competitions, I now have a great opportunity to move up the rankings as quick as possible, and achieving my main goal for year 1 – The World Championships at the Ally Pally!!!” – Stuart Kellett
Matt Ward finalised the contracts with Stuart today, and is now confident his has a stable of players who will compete with the best of them in the coming years.
“Stuart is a proven BDO performer and players with that pedigree and experience tend to do well in the PDC. It’s great to put all our backing behind Stuart, and we know that with our team’s support, he can concentrate on playing the best darts he can on the professional tour. We can now boast 3 great players under our management team. This will however be our last player of 2012 as myself and Clifton need a social life!” – Matt Ward, on building his dream team.
All three players next head to Reading, for a PDC Player championships ProTour event, and we will hope to bring you positive results from that weekend.
