Fallon Sherrock Makes History At World Darts Championships

Fallon Sherrock made history at Alexandra Palace on Tuesday night when she became the first woman to win a match at the World Darts Championships.

Sherrock defeated Ted Evetts 3-2, finishing the match on a double 16 after her opponent had missed a bullseye to take the win.

The 25-year-old from Miltown Keynes progressed to the second round by hitting six maximums and averaging 91.2 points per trip to the oche.

"I'm speechless, I don't know what to say," she told Sky Sports after the win.

"I feel really happy because I have proven something for women’s darts, that women can play the men and beat them, so fingers crossed this is a move in the right direction. I’m over the moon, I can’t believe it!

"To be on the biggest stage there is, wow!"

On Sunday night, women's world champion Mikuru Suzuki was beaten narrowly by James Richardson.

Sherrock will play number 11 seed Mensur Suljović in the second round.
