Martin Adams came through a thrilling duel with BDO World Championship debutant Dean Winstanley to pick up his third title in Sunday night's final at Frimley Green.

The 54-year-old Londoner, a winner in 2007 and 2010, looked in danger on a number of occasions before running out a 7-5 winner.

‘I had to dig deep,’ Adams told BBC Sport afterwards. ‘Deano had me in all sorts of problems.

‘I thought 'what do I have to do now?'

‘It means it's number three and that equals one or two records. I want to win a third one next year for the hat-trick.’

After taking a two-set lead, Adams was pinned back to 2-2 by the Doncaster thrower, before falling 4-3 behind.

The see-saw nature of the contest continued to 5-5, before Adams called on his experience to move ahead and win 7-5.

‘The better man won on the night, he deserves it. But it was nice to see the man with the beard shake,’ Winstanley said.
