Fallon Sherrock reveals freakish tradition before every World Darts Championship match

Despite the excitement surrounding Fallon Sherrock, the bookies only rate her chances at 7/2 to win this match.

But Sherrock's first assignment will be the BDO Women's World Championship, beginning on January 4, where she is the fourth seed. One only need see the pockets of blonde-wigged, pink-shirted Sherrock lookalikes dotted around Alexandra Palace, the sign reading "Fallon will you marry me", or the messages of support from the likes of Stephen Fry and Billie Jean King to see the impact she has had on this sport. Sherrock has also received new sponsorship deals and has been rewarded with a place in the US Darts Masters at Madison Square Garden in NY in June, with PDC chairman Barry Hearn saying her achievements were the "dawn of a new era" for the sport. After that, she has confirmed she will compete again at qualifying school next month in an attempt to secure a tour card to challenge full-time on the PDC's £14million circuit.

"I want more people to play darts", Sherrock told Dan Dawson. "Her talent & grace under pressure will take her far".

"I can not believe it", she said.

"I just ran out of energy, I was feeling really bad up there after the first three sets", admitted Wright, who will make his fifth World Championship quarter-final appearance on Sunday. "If that doesn't show that women can play darts, I don't know what does".

A win over Dobey will take her to £35,000 for the tournament.

Pakistan is placed in Group C of the 16-team event and will play Scotland in their opening match on January 19. Both these matches are set to start at 6:00 PM IST.

Sherrock will take home 25,000 pounds ($46,830) for her work at the world titles.

"I have proved we can beat anyone".

Sherrock made another solid display on Ally Pally's huge stage, but Dobey was too much for her, finishing with an excellent average of 101.09.

But she has been included in the other five worldwide World Series events, which take place in Denmark, Germany, New Zealand and two competitions in Australia.
