Trina Gulliver MBE will appear in her 19th consecutive World Championship in 2020 having sneaked into the field at the last minute after fortune was on her side at the BDO World Masters.

Lisa Ashton and Anastasia Dobromyslova reached the final at the World Masters and because they are two of the highest seeds and two players who have already qualified. ‘The Golden Girl’ will be part of the line-up as a result.

Gulliver would have had to go to the qualifier so would have had her record in jeopardy and she is now one of only a few players to still be adding to her record.

Steve Beaton is at the top of that list with 28 consecutive appearances and he will likely giving his career trajectory go past Phil Taylor’s record of 29.

Raymond van Barneveld has reached 25 but won’t add to that mark after this year of course. Gary Anderson and Vincent van der Voort are at 18 and will also likely add to that mark.
