Trina Gulliver has said that regaining the BDO women's world championship title is a "special" feeling.

The 40-year-old from Warwickshire defeated Rhian Edwards 2-0 in the final at the Lakeside on Friday to win her eighth title and first since 2007.

"All of the titles are really special but to win it back again feels great," Gulliver told BBC Sport.

"I've practised really hard and I've been missing the trophy but to be back on form feels fantastic. "

Gulliver added: "I've done everything right in my preparation this year and not to win would have just been bad luck.

Nicknamed the Golden Girl, Gulliver has appeared in every one of the 10 BDO women's finals at the Lakeside and said that she is still hungry for more success.

"I don't like giving things away and losing the title for the first time hurt," said Gulliver.

"I'm settled in my life and I think that is showing through in my darts."

"I'll be here for a while yet trying to win as many titles as I can."
