Lloyd advocates Sherrock Premier League spot: "It's not a ranked event, it's about showing the world, the game of darts"

With Fallon Sherrock's brilliant run at the Grand Slam of Darts and the eyes of the sporting world once again on the Milton Keynes ace, Colin Lloyd is the latest pundit to weigh in on her potentially receiving a Premier League spot.

While some are opposed including World Number One, Gerwyn Price, Lloyd sees it similar to World Series of Darts in that it's about showcasing darts as an unranked event so he doesn't see why not.

"There are always going to be people talking about her not having a Tour card, does she deserve a place in their Premier League," Lloyd told the Darts Show podcast.

"Let's get the facts right, the most talked about dart player on this planet at this moment in time…it's Fallon Sherrock.

"The darting fans aren't going to like this - it's not MVG; Gezzy is up there because he's actually won the event, but I think the most talked about player at this moment in time is Fallon.

"What people have got to understand is the Premier League is a show. It's a show that travels all around the United Kingdom; it goes to Dublin, it goes to Berlin and it goes to Rotterdam.

"It's not a ranked event, it's about showing the world, the game of darts. For me at this moment in time, why not put her in?

"That's my opinion. Now if anybody wants to come back at me with that, go right ahead with it. But it is a show."
