FALLON SHERROCK shook up the Grand Slam of Darts – now she has been tipped for a rich Premier League spot.
The Queen of the Palace bowed out of the Wolverhampton event following a 16-13 quarter-final defeat to Peter Wright.
Sherrock, 27, will go down in history as the first woman to reach this stage of a PDC ranking major.
Sherrock, who averaged 99.9, said: “I’m so proud of myself especially, averaging nearly 100.
“I’m absolutely knackered now. I tried my best, I’m happy.
“This week has been absolutely incredible, I couldn’t have asked for a better one. I made the Grand Slam and I made a massive dent in it.
“Do you know what, I just go up there and play my game and put everything else behind me.
“I don’t want to put all the pressure on myself. If I get a tour card, then great. Or if I get one from Q School whichever way.”

Wright, the former world darts champion, reckons trailblazing Sherrock deserves to be included in the 2022 Premier League.
Snakebite, who next faces Michael Smith in today’s semi-finals, said: “I had to hit a lot of 180s. Fallon let me off again. Wow, she’s amazing.
“The Premier League is the biggest darts show in the world, this lady deserves a place in the Premier League.
“I had to play at my best there to try and beat her.”
