Fallon Sherrock not feeling the pressure ahead of Premier League Darts debut

Darts superstar Fallon Sherrock is back on our screens this evening as she makes her Premier League Darts debut.

And after taking the World Championships by storm at the turn of the year, she insists all the pressure is on her opponent Glen Durrant this evening.

Sherrock made history in December, becoming the first female to win a match at the World's.

But if that wasn't enough, the 25-year-old went on to beat the then-11th seed Mensur Suljovic.

Sherrock's run came to an end against Chris Dobey in round three.

However, he exploits at Alexandra Palace have earned her a guest spot on the Premier League tour.

“It’s amazing that people are travelling to see me, it’s still all new to me so I’m really excited,” said Sherrock.

“At Alexandra Palace I tried to block everything out during my games so that will be what I do again, but I love taking in all the support at the end of matches.

“I don’t feel any pressure, I think all the pressure will be on Glen because he’s the Premier League player and he needs the points.

“I’m going to play my own game, not think about anything else and see how it goes. I can’t wait to go and play on another big stage.

“I haven’t had a lot of time to reflect. I’m taking little bits in but it’s been a bit overwhelming how much I’ve helped the sport in general. I’m really proud of what I’ve done.”
