Fallon Sherrock makes darts history after beating a man

Fallon Sherrock has made darts history after becoming the first woman to beat a man at the PDC world championship.

The 25-year-old player defeated Ted Evetts 3-2 in her first-round win at Alexandra Palace, London.

She hit six maximum 180s and scored an average 91.12.

Afterwards Fallon, from Buckinghamshire, said:

“I’m speechless, I don’t know what to say.

“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!”
