RICHIE GEORGE SIGNS WITH RED DRAGON DARTS
Richie George, son of the world famous Bobby George, announced today that he has signed with Red Dragon Darts, the world’s leading specialist darts company.
Richie has made a big impact since joining the BDO circuit, with 3 last 16 finishes and a last 32 from his first 5 senior events. The darting fraternity is fully aware of his darts pedigree and hope to see him secure his place at Lakeside on the first time of asking. It is not only his darts that has attracted attention but also an engaging personality and image that has seen fans warming to the son of showman dad Bobby.
Richie said, “I am very excited to get out there on tour and improve my game by taking on the best players in the sport. Being around darts so much with my dad was fantastic for me and I learned a lot from his coaching and encouragement . All the experiences gleaned from my youth career, along with the help and support I have received, will hopefully stand me in good stead as I try to qualify for the majors. Red Dragon’s credentials are second-to-none in the darts industry and I am very happy to be joining their team of players that includes many of the world’s best.”
Simon Hall, Head of Marketing for Red Dragon said, “We specialise in working with young talented dart players, and Richie’s skill and potential are matched by his professional approach and character as everyone witnessed during his first senior events. These ingredients have made him one of the most talked about prospects in darts, and he’s so keen to forge his own career and character. We are looking forward to a long and exciting partnership with him.”
