Beau Greaves is just a few days away  from taking to the stage at the Alexandra Palace for the first time as the Worlds Darts Championships get underway.

The 18-year-old will be relatively unknown to casual fans of the sport but is well on her way to making a name for herself after a series of incredibly impressive performance.

Greaves, who is from Doncaster, has been drawn to play Limerick man Willie O'Connor in the first round of the tournament. It is fair to say O'Connor will not have it his own way if he wants to advance to play 25th seed Gabriel Clemens.

Greaves will become the youngest female in history to play at the World Championships when she steps onto the Ally Pally stage and after a year to remember will be hoping to pull off a shock.

Greaves won eight consecutive Women’s Series titles between August and October of this year and has won over sixty games in a row.

Greaves has been widely compared to Fallon Sherrock, who made history in 2019 as the first woman to win a match at the World Championship, a comparison she pushes back upon.

The teenager even crushed Sherrock's hopes of making it to the Alexandra Palace this year beating her 5-3 to qualify back in October.

In that game Greaves averaged 107.86, a record women's average in the sport.

This weekend she is in action at the 2022 World Masters in Assen, Netherlands and did not drop a leg over the first seven games.

She eventually beat Almudena Fajardo in the final 6-0 and the four sets she lost all came in the semifinal.

O'Connor will be looking to get beyond the third round for the first time in his career this time round, having reached the stage in 2018-2019 as well as last year's edition.

Greaves is certain to be one of the most talked-about players at the Ally Pally next week. If her performance this weekend is anything to go by, O'Connor will be in for a serious battle.
