In what might be the last major darts gathering, for quite sometime, The Isle of Man festival took place recently, in Douglas. The longstanding event was held under the auspices of England Darts and the WDF.
Fallon Sherrock enjoyed a phenomenal weekend at the Isle of Man Darts Festival, claiming the three singles titles and the ladies pairs event, Beau Greaves was defeated in all four finals. After her efforts at the (PDC) World Championship, Premier League and appearance at the UK Open, Sherrock has returned to BDO events. The experience and efforts with the PDC have clearly boosted her.
The 25-year-old picked up the Isle of Man Classic (4-2), Open (4-2) and Masters (4-3), while also winning the ladies’ pairs with Casey Gallagher (3-2). Teenager Greaves was runner-up in all the three singles events, and with Deta Hedman in the pairs event.
The Men’s events were taken by Thibault Tricole and Micheal Warburton respectively. Warburton defeated a resurgent Martin Adams in the final of the Open.
Luke Littler claimed the youth title overcoming Charlie Manby in the trophy match.
Former hairdresser Sherrock took to social media after the phenomenal weekend: ‘Ecstatic feeling today having won all 3 singles events and the pairs, full credit to Beau Greaves for her performances as well.’
Sherrock will rise to second in the BDO rankings, behind Greaves, and third within the WDF. The Queen of the Palace wil be back in PDC action in the World Series events, starting with the US Darts Masters on 5 June in New York and going to Copenhagen the following week.
A gap before the New South Wales Darts Masters, NZ Darts Masters and Queensland Darts Masters, all played in August, all of which will be shown on ITV4.
Fallon will play these events, however this will mean that she will miss any BDO events that are held, this will include the World Trophy, which co-insides with the competition in Queensland.
