BOLTON'S Lisa Ashton has won a fourth Ladies' world darts title at the Lakeside after beating Russian Anastasia Dobromyslova 3-1 in sets today.

The 47-year-old reigning champion from Johnson Fold made it four wins in five years after coming from a set down to clinch the trophy and prize money of £12,000.

And afterwards, with daughter Danielle watching on, fourth-seed Ashton was naturally beaming with pride.

She told Channel Four: "Every win here is so special and I am really happy.

"I knew it was going to be tough but when Anna let me in, I took my chances.

"It is great to have Danielle in the crowd shouting 'come on mum' and also my sponsors and family behind me.

"I couldn't do it without them."

It was a rapid start to the final with Dobromyslova quickest out of the blocks to win the first set 3-0 in legs - the first set Ashton had lost since losing at the quarter-final stage in 2016.

But The Lancashire Rose hit back to win the second set 3-1 as she found her rhythm.

And as the Russian 33-year-old struggled, high scoring from Ashton saw her cruise to victory.

In the third set she had a 12-dart leg and a 130 checkout, finishing on bullseye to win the set 3-0 and then she repeated that scoreline in the fourth, clinching the title with double top.

Dobromyslova was also looking for a fourth title but conceded the better player won on the day.

She said: "Lisa played superbly and outscored me so she deserved the title."
