Trina makes it number 8

Trina Gulliver was crowned queen of darts for a record-breaking eighth time after toppling Welsh player Rhian Edwards 2-0.

Gulliver the giant in women^s darts needed just 18 minutes to pocket the title and £6000.

The Cheddar based player had the advantage of throwing first and drove home double 10 after missing two attempts for double tops.

Edwards had first throw for a double in the next but the consistency she had shown in previous matches was missing as she fluffed three chances, Gulliver narrowly missing double 18 for a 147 finish but finishing it with her next throw.

The Golden Girl powered in a 180 in the next, clinching the set with double two.

Edwards who has been throwing her husband^s darts after misplacing her own powered down to the double in the opening leg of the second set but missed another three attempts, Gulliver pouncing to finish 76 with double tops and break the advantage.

The 40-year-old second seed then followed up with a superb 117 finish, completed on double tops, racing ahead in the next leg but missing two darts for double eight.

On her return to the oche there was no mistake as she fired in double eight to land her eighth title.

Edwards in her first appearance in the championship did not disgrace herself and went home with £2000 but more importantly valuable experience which will stand her in good stead for the future.

"Wiping back tears of delight, Gulliver declared: "My house has been so empty without this trophy, it means so much to get it back.

"Rhian is a great player and I needed to put her under pressure straight away. It would have been good to have the final over five sets but I am delighted to win back the trophy," said the eight times winner.
