Can Fallon keep run going?

Fallon Sherrock is being backed to continue her stunning run at the Darts World Championship.

The 25-year-old made history as the first woman to win a match in the sport’s most prestigious tournament with her victory over Ted Evetts.

But Sherrock produced another stunning victory as she knocked Mensur Suljovic out of the William Hill World Championship with a monumental bullseye finish on Saturday.

“I can’t believe it,” said Sherrock, who will return on Friday December 27 to take on Chris Dobey in round three.

“I’ve knocked out one of the best players in the world and it has given me the best feeling in the world.

“I was so happy when that bullseye went in. It was an amazing moment for me and I’ll be jumping around when I get home.

“I felt so comfortable and I really enjoyed it – I just want to get up there and play again.”

Bookmakers now believe she could be heading for more success and have priced up what may happen next to the first woman to ever beat a man at the tournament – including winning BBC Sports Personality Of The Year 2020.

According to Paddy Power, she’s rated 50/1 to win SPOTY and those odds have fallen from 100/1 since she won her first match as bettors back her to continue to smash the glass ceiling in darts.

The 25-year-old is also rated 16/1 to be given a damehood and it’s just 5/1 that she is given the Freedom of Milton Keynes, where she is from.

With the Queen’s Christmas Day speech just around the corner, where she is expected to discuss matters like Boris Johnson, Brexit and climate change, it’s priced at 20/1 that Her Majesty decides to mention Fallon Sherrock.

And movie star Matthew McConaughey, who recently tweeted Gerwyn Price after his Grand Slam of Darts victory, is priced at 4/1 to give Sherrock a mention on social media.

Spokesman Paddy Power said: “Fallon Sherrock has won legions of fans after beating male darts players at their own game, and we believe the next natural step is for Her Majesty to mention the Queen of darts in her Christmas day speech.

“The odds are also tumbling on her winning SPOTY, despite us only having just seen the ceremony for this year’s winner. You go girl.”
