Wymondham darts ace James Hubbard has hit the bullseye with a new sponsorship deal.
The talented youngster, who has just turned 16, will be sponsored by civil engineering firm GSD Lamberts and Sons of Morley.
His dad Vic, a former England darts player himself, said: “He's really pleased because it costs so much. He will be sponsored for a couple of years so he can do the youth system with the British Darts Organisation to gain experience and hopefully win a few youth tournaments and make the World Cup team in America next year.”

He explained how the deal came about: “My daughter knows one of the sons at Lamberts and we got in touch with him. He was so pleased James got picked for England.
“It's very difficult to get in that team, especially as he got in at such a young age. They are giving him £4,000 a year so he can try to do the best he can.”
