Sunday review

Fallon Sherrock booked her Grand Slam of Darts debut by claiming her third Women's Series title of the weekend in Milton Keynes on Sunday.

Sherrock defeated Lisa Ashton 5-0 in their third final of the day, a winner-takes-all clash to top the Women's Series Order of Merit after six events.

Ashton had won her second and third titles of the weekend in Events Four and Five, but had no answers to Sherrock's 96.35 average in the Event Six decider.

Though both players won three titles each, Sherrock's two runner-up placings to Ashton's one saw her finish higher on the Order of Merit after the opening weekend of action at the Marshall Arena.

"I'm really pleased," said Sherrock. "Getting to the final twice and losing to the same player both times is going to play on your mind a bit, so I'm delighted to get the win.

"Lisa didn't play her best in the last final but I'll take the result, I couldn't give her a way into the match.

"I don't know where I pulled out that last performance from because I'm shattered after playing so many matches across the two days. I think it's because I feel relaxed.

"I'm absolutely buzzing to have secured a place in the Grand Slam, I can't wait to play in that.

"But there's six events still left to play in the Women's Series and I need to make sure I finish the job and qualify for Ally Pally."

PDC Tour Card Holder Ashton, the 2020 PDC Women's Series winner, enjoyed an unbeaten run across the opening two events of the day, defeating Sherrock 5-4 and 5-2 in the day's first two title deciders.

Ashton remains well-placed on the Order of Merit heading into events 7-12 in Barnsley next month, with the top player across those six events joining Sherrock in qualifying for the Grand Slam of Darts.

In addition, the top two players from the final Order of Merit, following all 12 events, will qualify for the 2021/22 William Hill World Darts Championship.

Events 7-12 will take place at the Barnsley Metrodome from October 23-24. Coverage will be streamed through PDCTV throughout the three events.

Saturday review

Fallon Sherrock enjoyed two wins as the 2021 PDC Women's Series began on Saturday, as Lisa Ashton also took victory in Milton Keynes.

The first of four days of action in the 2021 PDC Women's Series saw three events, each worth ยฃ5,000 in prize money, take place.

PDC Tour Card Holder Ashton, the 2020 PDC Women's Series Order of Merit winner, got off to an ideal start by winning Event One.

A tough route to the final saw Ashton defeat Sherrock, Lorraine Winstanley and Anastasia Dobromyslova in successive matches, before taking the title with a 5-3 win over Rhian O'Sullivan.

Ashton lost out in the quarter-finals of Event Two to Joanne Locke as Sherrock - last week's Viaplay Nordic Darts Masters runner-up - went all the way to the title.

Sherrock dropped just three legs in five games on her way to the final - including wins over Locke and O'Sullivan - before defeating Australia's Corinne Hammond 5-2 in the decider.

The Milton Keynes star then completed a daily double by winning Event Three to move top of the Order of Merit going into day two - putting herself in pole position to claim a Cazoo Grand Slam of Darts place.

Sherrock again defeated O'Sullivan and Hammond during the event, saw off Dobromyslova 5-1 in the semi-finals and then secured victory by defeating Deta Hedman 5-3 in the final.

Sherrock sits on ยฃ2,100 prize money following the first three events, ahead of Ashton (ยฃ1,350) and Hedman (ยฃ1,250) in the rankings.

The leading player following Event Six will qualify for the Grand Slam of Darts, with a second place in Wolverhampton on offer for the top star from Events 7-12 next month.

In addition, the top two players from the final Order of Merit, following all 12 events, will qualify for the 2021/22 William Hill World Darts Championship.
