The next three years will be crucial in the career of Team Unicorn’s top Australian star Kyle Anderson.
Having sorted problems with his eyesight caused by diabetes, Anderson has now sorted out his visa to play his chosen sport until 2021.
Red Tape brought an abrupt half to Kyle’s career 18 months ago when a visa mix-up meant that he couldn’t compete in the UK.
The popular Aussie won a year-long stay but after heading home to see the family, Anderson has now secured a long-term visa.
“Again there was some uncertainty for me and my family over the visa situation,” he said. “There was a concern that we would have to do this every year, so I am absolutely delighted that we have a visa through to 2021. It means a heavy weight lifted off my shoulders and I can now focus on darts, winning titles and getting up the world rankings.”
Kyle is currently 22nd in the world and his next big target is a spot in the elite top 16. The health problems and visa concerns have clearly taken a toll on his game in 2018, but now it is onward and upward for the rest of the year
