The Dutch commentator of RTL 7 said Sherrock won't compete in the inaugural edition of the WDF World Championship in January because the Queen of the Palace would prefer a gala evening in Germany, where 'she can collect a lot of money'.
Enquiries with Sherrock's management, reveal that Nieuwlaat's statements are incorrect. ''We would like to clarify an incorrect statement which was made by a podcast where the host said that Fallon Sherrock was withdrawing from the WDF Women’s World Championship to play in a commercial event in Germany. This was totally incorrect, to date Fallon has made no comment on the event as she has NOT received an invitation to the WDF Women’s World Championship as of today. Why the podcast host decided to make false comments on the matter we do not know'', a spokesman from Sherrock told Dartsnieuws.com.
Sherrock's spokesman also indicated that it has yet to be decided whether Sherrock will participate in the WDF World Championship once she receives an invite.
''There are both legal and logistical issues, like the PDC and WDF World Championship overlapping and the run-up to Q-School, which need to be looked into before any decision can be made on acceptance or not. We would hope the podcast host checks his facts in future before causing unnessasary and unneeded comments'', the spokesman added.
