DARYL GURNEY is aiming for a bigger slice of success in 2019 thanks to the extended backing of Four Star Pizza.

The World No.5 admits he’s delighted that the top topping firm are back on board with him as they announced the deal in Dublin.

Former Grand Prix champion and current Players Championship title winner Superchin next faces Rob Cross in the Unibet Premier League in Exeter on Thursday.”
He revealed: “I’m over the moon to confirm the new deal with Four Star Pizza. I’ve always had great support from their customers and I’m really looking forward to meeting more of them in 2019 and helping to bring the wonderful sport of darts to an even bigger audience across Ireland.

“The aim is always to win more and more titles, and hopefully with the added support of Four Star Pizza I can have a slice of even greater success in 2019 and make it my best year yet on the professional circuit.“

Four Star Pizza, who earlier this month announced plans to expand their number of stores in Ireland to a total of 65 outlets across the island, creating up to an additional 200 new jobs, will have its logo displayed on Daryl’s playing shirt for all of his 2019 fixtures.

In addition, they have secured a number of exclusive customer and media engagement opportunities with Daryl, one of the rising stars of the sport.

Four Star Pizza Director, Brian Clarke, welcomed the news, saying: “We’re thrilled to announce that we are extending our sponsorship with Daryl, and look forward to cheering him on in what we hope will be another successful season.

“We know that an increasing number of our customers support Daryl as he takes on the best players in the world.

“With his fan-base growing all the time, we expect his support, particularly in Ireland, to grow. We’re looking forward to plenty of 180s from the SuperChin in 2019 and he can count on Four Star Pizza for top flight support.”

Established in 1986, Four Star Pizza employs more than 1,000 people across the island of Ireland. Last year, the company sold approximately 4.5 MILLION pizzas, using almost 60 MILLION pepperoni slices, more than 500 TONNES of cheese and 1000 TONNES of flour in the process.

The first Four Star Pizza store in Ireland opened in Crumlin, Dublin, in 1986. Since then, the company has opened locations across Dublin, Cork, Galway, Kerry, Wicklow, Donegal, Kildare, Kilkenny, Limerick, Louth, Meath, Wateford, Westmeath, and Wexford.

In Northern Ireland, the company opened its first store in Belfast in 1999 and other locations now include Bangor, Carrickfergus, Newry, Drumahoe, Derry, Armagh, Newtownabbey, Coleraine and, most recently, Lisburn which opened its doors in December last year.
