Sherrock hopes to claim one of the 32 PDC Tour cards that are on offer this week

Fallon Sherrock reached the final stages of PDC Q-School 2022, sealing his progress with a 5-2 victory over Wes Newton.

The ‘Queen of the Palace’ aims to become the second woman in history, after Lisa Ashton in 2020, to win a PDC Tour card and join the 128-person Pro Tour.

After a loss in the first round on Sunday, followed by a loss in her third game on Monday, Sherrock knew she needed a big performance on Tuesday or she would be eliminated.

She got off to a perfect start, with a 5-0 win over Robert Whybrew, before backing him up against Kevin Lane in a 5-1 win, scoring 96.03.

This saw her face off against three-time World Championship quarter-finalist and former Premier League star Wes Newton.

The 27-year-old star defeated “The Warrior,” in a victory that secured him passing through the Order of Merit in Stage One. If she wins two more matches on Tuesday, she will progress as an automatic qualifier.

Meanwhile, John Part’s dream of winning a Tour Card ended in a 5-4 loss to Shane McGuirk.
