Fallon Sherrock sets her sights on Q-School Glory.
The Queen of the Palace Fallon Sherrock will once again be heading to PDC Q-School next week in her home town of Milton Keynes. Sherrock is aiming to claim her PDC tour card and join the elite 128 in world darts.
Sherlock missed out on a return to Alexandra Palace last year by the smallest of margins. Deta Hedman claimed the final space along with Lisa Ashton by just two legs. Sherrock insisted that disappointment has only made her more determined to succeed.
Looking to the Future
“It was upsetting at the time but I could either keep getting upset about it or move on from it, and that’s the way I’m looking at it,” Sherrock said on The Darts Show Podcast.
“I’m using it to make myself more determined. I’m not going to lose by two legs in the future; I don’t want to be in that scenario again.
“Lisa winning a Tour Card last year was a great achievement. We all want to get on the ProTour; I want to join Lisa, and I know I’ve got the game.
“I wouldn’t be going to Q School if I didn’t think I was capable of doing it, I feel like I’m ready for it, I’m ready to be pushed by top quality players.
“I’ve been practising a lot. I’m looking forward to Q School so much; I’m looking forward to getting out of the house and playing some proper darts.
“I’m very excited. It will be a very different environment to last year; I don’t know what to expect from the whole experience.”
The Covid-19 pandemic meant Sherrock missed out on playing in the 2020 PDC World Series. The Queen of the Palace knows if the performances keep coming, the opportunities will still be there.
“Instead of dwelling on everything that could’ve been, I’ve got to look to the future and see what I can achieve going forward.
“I’m feeling very confident in the way I’m playing. At the Women’s Series, I really did play some quality darts but missed out by two legs. I think I’ll always remember that.
“I know that if I keep performing when I’m in the spotlight, then more opportunities will come in the future.”
