PROFESSIONAL darts player Dean ‘over the top’ Winstanley has signed a deal with a new management team following his high-profile switch to the PDC circuit.
MDA Promotions and Mitchell Promotions, the management team behind fellow PDC player Justin Pipe, have signed Winstanley on a three-year deal.
Winstanley, 30, who lives in Buxton and is the partner of ladies darts player Lorraine Farlam, learnt his trade on the BDO circuit, reaching the Lakeside World Professional Darts Championship final on his debut in 2011.
He now plays his darts on the PDC circuit after winning a tour card in Barnsley last month.
Mitchell Promotions, run and owned by former heavyweight boxer Clifton Mitchell, is based in Derby, while MDA Promotions, run by Matthew Ward, is based in Leicester.
