Ashton and Hedman qualify for PDC World Darts Championship; Sherrock misses out on qualifying spot
Sherrock made history at the PDC World Championship last year by becoming the first female player to win a match at the tournament. She beat Ted Evetts and Mensur Suljovic before losing out to Chris Dobey in the Last 32.
Despite that though, 'The Queen of the Palace' will not be involved at the Alexandra Palace this time around. In Barnsley, four tournaments took place to decide the fate of the two qualifiers. Ashton won the first tournament by seeing off Sherrock in the final.
The latter then lost twice to Deta Hedman who won the second event on Saturday and lost to Ashton in the third final on Sunday afternoon.
Sherrock and Hedman met again once more in the Quarter-Finals on Sunday evening. At that point, Sherrock could only level with Hedman but despite a 4-2 win, her fate was still unclear.
Shortly afterwards, it became clear that the legs won during the entire Women's Series (not including preliminary rounds) would be considered. Hedman finished on 85 legs won, while Sherrock would have a maximum of 83 legs.
She went on to win the tournament with victory over Corrine Hammond who herself had a great weekend but in the end, it was little more than a consolation.
