Big Names Rally Around Fallon:

FALLON SHERROCK became the latest victim of social media abuse after a fan called her a “s***” and “slag” following an online defeat. The yob messaged Sherrock “Your so s*** you slag” and also “I’d love to stamp on your ugly head”. Sherrock responded on Twitter: “All I did was not win a game of darts, this is so wrong.”

Laura Turner also hit back on Twitter, saying:

“Seeing so much of this at the moment…absolutely disgusting. @Fsherrock – you’re playing fab darts and you’re a beautiful person on and off the oche…

don’t let this idiot or anyone else make you think differently.”


Jamie Caven added: “Disgusting….. we’ve all been on the end of it at some point, and more than likely due to a bet going wrong. It’s peoples choice to bet, but the players are just doing their job. These trolls ruin social media for the real fans.”

Sky Sports commentator Stuart Pyke backed her as well saying: “Absolutely disgusting. Report him straight away and stay strong Fallon.”

ITV presenter Jacqui Oatley tweeted:

“I’d love to stamp on your ugly head,” says the big guy with his cute little girl in his profile pic.

What would he do to someone who sent a similar message to his daughter when she’s older? 

It’s not the first time Sherrock, who also drew with Glen Durrant in the Premier League earlier this year, has been given abuse.

World No.1 Michael Van Gerwen is in the same Modus Sports stable as Sherrock and has helped her deal with the pressures of instant fame.

And several of the game’s superstars have reached out to her with guidance after nasty trolls subjected her to social media abuse.

It has also been revealed that Luke Humphries received abuse from the same yob which stated: “Hope you die you c***” and “you cheating w*****, should be banned for life, fat p****”.

New Darts Magazine Launch: OCHE!

After years in the mind, and months of preparation, a new style of darts magazine is ready to go. OCHE! is the brain child of Phil Lanning. Long time sports journalist Phil, son of legendary commentator Dave, has been working flat out to see his ambition fulfilled.

Noticeable, from the off, is an ‘up market’ GQ meets OK styling, with an amphasis on innovative use of font, photography and graphics.

Interviews and clubs from top draw names, from players through to TV presenters together with those from the business itself, also feature heavily.

All-in-all it looks as if Phil, and his photographer son Taylor, have hit the bullseye.

(DW EiC): As a superb darts journalist and the son of a former Darts World stalwart, we wish Phil, Taylor and OCHE every success! (CJHH)
