The name Michael Dent may not mean much to the younger generation of players, especially those outside Europe.
But during the mid 70s he was one of a crop of top British players who made their name on the European Cup.
Now living and working in Malaysia, as a lecturer in marketing management, Mike occasionally flicks and has helped the local organiser, and has taken part in events in Singapore. He is hoping to attend the Asian Cup in Melbourne in January 2018.
