Fallon Sherrock backed for more success

Tuesday evening saw Fallon Sherrock make darting history at Ally Pally as she became the first woman ever to defeat a man at the PDC World Championship.

Sherrock was one of only two women to qualify for the 96-player event but the 25-year-old booked her place in the second round with a 3-2 victory over Ted Evetts.

“I am speechless,” she said. “I don’t know what to say. Thank you every one. I feel really happy because I have made something for women’s darts.

“I can’t believe it. To do that on the biggest stage, wow. I am so happy that I can continue it rather than go out.

“This is definitely one of the best moments I’ve had. I’m just so happy. I’ve just made history. I can’t believe it. I’ve made a great achievement for women’s darts.”

Fallon reached the 2015 BDO World Championship, where she was runner-up to Lisa Ashton and BoyleSports have trimmed the blonde Buckinghamshire beauty into 10/3 from 6/1 to win the 2020 title with Ashton the 12/5 favourite.

Japanese star Mikuru Suzuki came close to defeating James Richardson on Sunday and is second favourite at 3/1 to win back-to-back BDO World Championships next year.

The PDC World Championship might be out of reach for Fallon Sherrock at 2000/1 cut from 5000/1, but the further she goes in the competition the shorter her price will go for the BDO World title in 2020. She will face 47-year-old Austrian Mensur Suljovic in the second round and is really looking forward to playing him.

Sarah Kinsella, spokesperson for BoyleSports said: “Fallon Sherrock put women’s darts on the map at Ally Pally on Tuesday night when she beat Ted Evetts and she is now 10/3 from 6/1 to win the 2020 BDO World Championship. The blonde beauty is 2000/1 to win the PDC World Darts Championship, trimmed from 5000/1 while Michael van Gerwen is the Evens favourite.”
