World Champion darts aces Trina Gulliver and Lisa Ashton wowed the crowd in Skegness on Friday night.

But some of the William Hill Darts League’s players also had their moments against the oche stars.

Gulliver, who is the reigning BDO World Champion and has 10 titles to her name, joined two-time champ Ashton at the Skegness Liberal and Social Club, bringing her silverware with her as well.

When the two faced one another it was - despite them swapping darts - a repeat of the result at the Lakeside as Gulliver won 2-1.

Both ladies also faced eight players from the Skegness league, with both hitting 180s, double-double finishes, bull finishes and adding banter.

However, the duo didn’t have it all their own way.

Pete Evans was the first man to win, beating Lisa, while Mark Gray hit the only 180 against her.

Spencer Davis, and Martin Bell took legs off Gulliver.

Ashton had the crowd roaring as she, after missing a double, borrowed some glasses from an onlooker - keeping them on to win her next game.

As well as posing for pictures and dishing out autographs, Gulliver and Ashton also ended the evening with a Q and A session, dealing with some probing questions.

Attention now turns to the future exhibitions, the first being a Curry with Kong Robbie Green at the Lumley Bar-Restaurant Skegness on April 23.

This will be a fun night with pro Robbie, and food as well.

Tickets are on sale priced at £10, including the chance of a leg against Robbie.

Meanwhile, the league’s Pro-Am is up and running again, with the first qualifier taking place at the Skegness Ex Servicemen’s Club on February 21, with a 1.30pm start.

This event will be a last-man standing competition.

Entry to this competition costs £2 and is limited to 32 players.
