Dutch Open darts double for Cheddar's Golden Girl Trina Gulliver
Trina Gulliver made it a double Dutch last week with a twin win at the Dutch Open.
The nine-time world champion saw off Lorraine Farlam 5-3 in the singles final in Veldhoven to win the title for a fifth time, having earlier won the doubles crown with playing partner Zoe Jones.
Gulliver, nicknamed the Golden Girl, was delighted to get her hands on the singles trophy again, as well as gain revenge for her defeat to world champion Anastasia Dobromyslova at the Lakeside County Club at the start of the year.
"I had a really tough draw, so I'm really pleased to be able to win the competition," said Cheddar ace Gulliver, who made it back-to-back tournament victories, having previously won the Kent Open.

"I beat Anastasia in the quarter-finals and Deta Hedman in the semis before having to play Lorraine in the final.
"After the Kent Open last month, it's very nice to go on a bit of a winning run at the moment."
The doubles final was a family affair for Gulliver, who – with the help of Jones – recorded a 4-1 victory over her wife Sue and partner Paula Jacklin.
"Sue's playing really well herself at the moment and got to the quarter-finals of the singles as well," added Gulliver. "We beat her and Paula in the final of the doubles but thankfully she's still speaking to me."
