Two highly rated young talents in the sport have signed for the leading darts manufacturer.
Chris Dobey and Adam Hunt join the Unicorn stable as the company continues to build for the future. Significantly it also extends the close bond between Unicorn and Tommy Gilmour, the Scottish promoter, because the whole of ‘Team Gilmour’ is now onboard at Team Unicorn! Gilmour was delighted to see the pair sign. “It brings together a long-standing relationship between our two companies which is extremely pleasing.”
Double world champion Gary Anderson was the start of the partnership, followed by Michael Smith. “Believe me when I say, Chris and Adam are both capable of making a big impression. The link up with Unicorn will help that process. They are both cracking players and cracking lads and deserve all the success that is going to come their way,” said Anderson.
Dobey is aiming for a place inside the World’s top 50 and a spot at the World Championship. The 25-year-old from Northumberland makes his debut in Unicorn colours this weekend in Germany at the European Matchplay.
22-year-old Hunt from Chester-Le-Street has won one tournament, reached the final of another event, as well as two quarter-final appearances. He is currently in 3rd place on the Development Tour Order of Merit.
Unicorn player liaison Matt Rankin said: “We are thrilled to see Chris and Adam join Team Unicorn. Both are hugely talented players and we look forward to assisting their development over the coming months and years.’’
