She becomes the first ever female darts player to be recognised and honoured in this way and the British Darts Organisation sends its congratulations to a player who has played a major role in creating awareness and success for women’s darts worldwide.
The nine-time Women’s World Professional Darts Champion and England Captain has been awarded
the prestigious honour in recognition of her ‘Services to Darts and Fund Raising’ and will now be formally known as ‘Catrina Elizabeth Gulliver MBE’ – but prefers to be called Trina.
She will collect her MBE from St James Palace on a date yet to be confirmed.
Trina Gulliver was nicknamed ‘The Golden Girl’ in 1999 after winning three gold medals at the World Cup in Durban. Since then she has notched up countless International and National darts titles, including her record-breaking nine Lakeside Women’s World Professional titles and five Winmau World Masters titles.

On the oche, Little Richard Ashdown made an impressive debut when he presented the finals in his role as MC for the finals of his first ever BDO tournament.
But before that, darts history was made when Claire Stainsby and Glen Durrant recorded the first ever 9-Dart 501 in Mixed Pairs competition. They went on to be eventual runners-up to Garry Thompson and Deta Hedman who won the 2013 Mixed Pairs title.
To complete a memorable weekend, Claire and Glen won the Mixed Triples with Tony Eccles.
In the Youth Singles Semi-Finals, the very impressive 14 year-old JORDAN SINGH beat JOE DAVIS 3-1 , and 16 year-old CASEY GALLAGHER, , the only girl in the Youth Singles triumphed 3-2 over JOSH McCARTHY to reach the final.
And what a final it turned out to be was for young Jordan who hit a 180 in the 1st leg and then checked out on 116. Another 180 came in the 4th leg as he was eventually crowned 2013 Youth Singles Champion 3-1.
A real talent for the future of darts.
In the Women’s Singles Semi-Finals the in- form DETA HEDMAN beat Welsh favourite JULIE GORE 4-2 and TRINA GULLIVER beat RACHEL BROOKS 4-1 to set up an exciting final.
In the final, Deta hit a 180 in the 2nd leg and had 81 left after 9 darts, but the doubles deserted her. However, Trina had to wait for her first 180 until the 7th leg when Deta was 4-2 up. The Dark Destroyer eventually retained her 2012 BDO International Open title with a 5-2 win.
In the Men’s Singles the only Dutchman left in the competition, JAN DEKKER beat Scotland’s JOHN GOLDIE 5-3 in the Semi-Finals, and reigning Lakeside World Champion SCOTT WAITES raced into another major final with a 5-1 Semi-Final triumph over JAMIE HUGHES.
In the final, Scott’s high-scoring form deserted him as Jan powered into a 3-0 lead, but with a brilliant 124 checkout Scott made it 3-1 and then hit a 180 in the next only to see it matched by Jan who went 4-1 up and then 5-1 before Scott pulled in back to 5-3.
But it was too little too late as the rampant Double-Dekker went on to win the final 6-3 in convincing style.

The honour was bestowed upon him during a special diner arranged for him and his wife Yvonne, which was attended by his former Dutch darts colleagues and coaches.
Dennis was thanked on behalf of everyone involved within the Dutch Darts Association by Sijmon Timmers, Chairman of the NDB, and presented with a golden pin to commemorate his services to the NDB and the sport of darts.
His first tournament as NDB coach was the 1998 Spring Cup and his last was the 2013 Six Nations Cup. In the last 15 years he has won every major title with the Dutch team – an achievement which deserves recognition from the whole sport of darts. With his friendly personality, extensive experience and kind nature, Dennis van Onselen is a person who is highly regarded and respected by players and colleagues.
The Dutch Darts Association would like to express its collective gratitude to Dennis for his invaluable services on behalf of Dutch darts.
