The World Darts Trophy kicked off yesterday being flimed “Live” on new channel Dave. Some great coverage from Lakeside saw Warwickshires Jamie Hughes overcome his tough opponent Ryan Joyce of Northumberland. Despite a mid game dip Hughes completed the match with two cool finishes with a 150 – two treble nineteens and a double 18 in the penultimate leg then taking out a 70 – treble 18 double eight to seal it. Trina Gulliver also progressed but after a very dour match that had a few high scores but loose darts aplenty, Trinas opponent had a chance in the very last leg to go through but missed her three darts at doubles for Gulliver to take out a double eight with great relief.
Trina Gulliver returned the Ladies World Championship to her home for an incredible tenth time after securing a very tense battle against Deta Hedman. Both players started nervy but a couple of maximums one from each player settled them down for the full battle. The first four sets all went against the darts with Hedman winning sets 1 and 3, Trina kicked off set four well and secured it 3-1 to set up the nervy last set. With Trina having the darts it was vital that she kept them and try to pressure the Hedman throw in leg 2, she succeeded there and never looked back after starting it with her third maximum. Third leg and Deta could not find anything in the tank and Trina set herself ready leaving 40 for the title which she duly despatched with a 1, 3 and d18 for the amazing feat of ten titles. Congratulations to the Golden Girl on this magnificent achievement. All at Warwickshire are very proud of you and we look forward to the next County Fixture.
Trina Gulliver came away from Selsey having a very succesful weekend. Finishing in the last four of the England National Singles losing out to Anca Zillstra by the odd leg, winning the Pairs with current World Champion Lisa Ashton and then losing out in the Open Singles to a very in-form Fallon Sherrock. Many games saw Trina blasting in high averages with some high scoring and precise finishing. Trina in this sort of form spells trouble for all the Ladies on the circuit.
Trina Gulliver returned with a bang when taking the Lincolnshire Open held at the Blues Club in Gainsborough. A tough semi final encounter with Cambridgeshires Amanda Abbott which went to the distance with Trina starting the final leg with a 180 before finishing brillinatly on a 152. Trina then faced Sarah Roberts in the final who had earlier taken out Cambridgeshires Claire Ball, the final despite some high scoring from Sarah went the way of Trina by a 4-0 scoreline. finishing with an average of 26.72.
Trina Gulliver shows the darting world that her game is well and truly back on track after taking the Gold Cup Singles in Lakeside. This is Trina’s third Gold Cup title after victories back in 2000 and 2003. Trina completed her days work with a semi final victory over Roz Bulmer of Norfolk and then went on to defeat Nikki Furse of Cornwall in the final.
Warwickshire Ladies Star Sue Gulliver has a new website. Released on Friday 28th June it shows Sue’s Darts Progress over the years.
Trina 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.
