Fallon Sherrock dropped out of the second day of the final phase of Q-School, lost her first game, but returns on Thursday and Friday

Fallon Sherrock suffered a second early defeat in a row in the final stages of PDC Q-School, losing 6-5 to Joshua Richardson in Milton Keynes in her first game of the second day.

Sherrock started the final stage on Wednesday with a 6: 1 defeat to American Danny Lauby, and after the second imminent loss, the ‘Queen of the Palace’ is now firmly opposed to winning the tour card.

Sherrock started well against former BDO World Champion Richardson, the son of former PDC player James Richardson, 2-0, but then broke down and fell 5-3 before breaking down to force a leg decision. In the end, however, she lost 6: 5.

Sherrock is looking to become the second woman to win a PDC Tour Card after Lisa Ashton in 2020 and join the 128-member Pro Tour.

Sherrock, one of 128 players competing for 32 seats, has not yet won the match and will now probably have to reach deep on Day 3 or Day 4 on Friday and Saturday on other, albeit scant, occasions.

On Tuesday, Sherrock secured a safe pass to the final stage with a 5: 2 victory over Wes Newton.

After defeating Sunday in the first round, after which she lost in the third match on Monday, Sherrock knew that she needed great performances on Tuesday, otherwise she would be eliminated.

The 27-year-old started with a lime 5-0 over Robert Whybrew, then beat Kevin Lane 5-1 before facing ‘The Warrior’ Newton, in a victory that ensured she passed the first stage. For merit. Scott Marsh, who won the final stage of the final stage, ended her race in the final stage.

‘The Lancashire Rose’ Ashton got off to a good start trying to get her PDC Tour Card back when she beat Nick Fullwell and Josh McCarthy by an average of over 90, but her form dropped and she eventually gave up 6-4 to Gary Blades.

The four-time women’s darts champion saw that her dreams of running at the PDC World Cup were thwarted last month by Dutchman Ron Meulenkamp in the first round.
