Trina Dutch Open Champion

Winners_DO13Trina Gulliver came up trumps twice this weekend when taking the Dutch Open Pairs with Worcestershire’s Zoe Jones against Lincolnshires Paula Jacklin and Sue Gulliver (unlucky Sue). Then on the Sunday reached the final beating Anastasia Dobromyslova and Deta Hedman where she would meet with Lorraine Farlam, first three legs went in Trina’s favour but Lorraine duly took the next three in the best of 9 clash. Next one was a tight affair with Trina sneaking it but a super 13 dart leg was the eighth and final leg for her to take the Dutch Open Crown.

Big Congratulations to Trina on her fine victory.
