Dobromyslava ends Gulliver reign

Trina Gulliver
Gulliver has vowed to bounce back from her defeat

Trina Gulliver's long reign as women's Lakeside World Darts champion was ended as she was beaten 2-0 in the final by Anastasia Dobromyslava.

Warwickshire's Gulliver, gunning for her eighth straight title, had never been beaten on the Lakeside stage.

But Dobromyslava, 23, produced 94 and 90 checkouts, a maximum, 165 and six 140s en route to her first world crown.

"Trina gave me a few chances and I took them. It is an incredible feeling," said the delighted Russian.

Gulliver was magnanimous in defeat, saying: "She deserved it because she played really well. I was hoping for another title but it was not to be.

"I felt confident before the final but I just needed a little bit of luck without taking away from Anastasia and how well she played. But I will be back."
