Turner backs Sherrock to deal with PDC Women's Series pressure: "I think that Fallon will deal with it how she has dealt with absolutely everything so far"
Laura Turner has backed Fallon Sherrock to deal with the pressure that will come with being one of the favourites to claim glory at the PDC Women's Series.
Turner spoke to Sky Sports News; she said that the attention should also be rightfully on Lisa Ashton who herself claimed the first ever outright Tour Card at Q-School at the turn of the year.
"To be fair, I think that Fallon will deal with it how she has dealt with absolutely everything so far anyway," Turner told Sky Sports News.
"The attention will be on Fallon; people do forget that Lisa [Ashton] got a tour card, which was another momentous occasion this year.
"I do think that it was the media attention that created worldwide attention of what Fallon did; but it's helped darts as well."
With the state of amateur darts in disarray with the BDO heading into liquidation as well as of course Coronavirus, there is not likely to be a Women's World Championship this year; so Turner welcomes this move.
"The list can go on… Anastasia [Dobromyslova], Mikuru [Suzuki], Aileen de Graaf, Deta Hedman - there a lot of women that can play," Turner added.
"If the world was to open up again tomorrow there's not a dedicated women's World Championship at the moment and we don't know what the women's tour with the World Darts Federation potentially could look like… the WDF is another governing body.
"This has come at a perfect time. We now know that there is something that we can go and play in and it's something that women have been asking for a long time - to be part of the professional circuit."
