Mick Collins

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAIt is with profound regret and sadness that I inform you all that after a long illness Mick Collins passed away at 9.38 am this morning
Mick was a founder member of Hampshire Darts Organisation and served many years as a Hampshire player, as the Men’s Team Manager and as a Senior Officer of the Hampshire Super Leagues.
I am sure that I speak for everyone when I say that I feel very proud and very privileged to have known Mick as a friend for so many years
Mick’s dedication to the sport of darts and its players earned him the respect he deserved both within and outside of the darts fraternity and his passing will make the world a sadder and lonelier place.
Mick leaves us all with so many happy memories plus a long and lasting legacy that will never be forgotten
Our deepest condolences go to Rita, Joanne and all of his family member
Sleep well Mick we will all miss you
In memory of a great and well-loved man
From all at Hampshire County Darts Organisation

Welcome Back

Dear Members and Friends of the Hampshire County Darts Organisation

I would like to extend apologies to you all for the enforced absence of this unique reference website and to say welcome back to the ‘NEW’ HCDO Website.

I would like to thank all that have made this possible with special mention to ELEVATEOM.com
for their expertise in resurrecting the website and in getting it up and running.

  • I also thank Helpful Books, Andy Scott, Laura Turner and all others for the invaluable assistance given to me during this process.
  • As we are all aware the Sport of Darts continues to grow at a pace to an extent that it enjoys extensive coverage by TV and the Press Media etc. in all parts of the World which in turn gives opportunities of high profile participation and the accompanying avenues to success for everyone so minded regardless of age.
  • HCDO intends for its members and supporters to be part of that future and as always we will strive to provide the means whereby all ambitions can be nurtured and wherever possible fulfilled.
  • It is the intention to give all sections of HCDO and its Member, Associated and Affiliated Darts bodies a platform on this exciting and broadened updated website in order that all can be made aware of what opportunities are available and how best to source them
  • We will need help to attain these objectives and will welcome input, advice and help from anyone that shares these beliefs and also contact from anyone willing to play an active part in maintaining this website for the benefit of all [see contact details below]
  • As my retirement looms large on the horizon I welcome contact from anyone with a like ambition to assist in serving the players of our County in the beautiful sport of darts and in recognising those players that bring so much Pride to the good name of Hampshire

Yours most sincerely
Frank Branscombe – Gen Sec, Finance Officer HCDO
