Darts hero Fallon Sherrock earns guest spot for PDC’s Premier League tournament

Fallon Sherrock will be back in front of darts fans again soon – after earning a spot in the PDC'S Premier League

Sherrock has been named as one of the Challengers, who join the tournament's regular players for one night.

The Milton Keynes thrower earned worldwide fame after becoming the first woman to beat male opposition at the PDC World Championship last month.

And she'll be entertaining fans in Nottingham when she competes at the Motorpoint Arena on February 13.

Sherrock's stock rose after beating Ted Evetts and Mensur Suljovic.

Sherrock's call-up tempers her disappointment at pulling out of the BDO ladies' world championship this weekend after prize money was slashed more than 50 per cent because of dreadful ticket sales, TV income and sponsorship.
