Turner on argument for Sherrock Premier League inclusion: "She's hot property, everyone wants to see Fallon play"

With the Premier League going down to eight players instead of 10 to account for the new format change, the inclusion of Fallon Sherrock potentially has been debated and whether she warrants a place in the line-up.

Laura Turner spoke to Sky Sports Darts after the format announcement and said it's a tricky one but the commercial value is there so she wouldn't be surprised if it happened.

"She's got to be one of the most commercial assets within darts at the moment, she's hot property. Everyone wants to see Fallon play," said Turner to Sky Sports.

"I think the argument now we've gone down to eight, it's very difficult to shoehorn her in based on what we've seen but if they did, it wouldn't necessarily surprise me.

"Darts is a commercial enterprise as much as it's sport and entertainment and everything else so it would and wouldn't surprise me and you can warrant it just on how much people want to see Fallon Sherrock play but my gut instinct is that it will go to the top eight players in the world or out of that top 10."

Selling out arenas

Turner sees it also from the point of view of selling out arenas and giving darts to audiences who previously wouldn't tune in.

"You ask people who they see in the press and who people are talking about, she's a massive name up there because of what she's achieved. It's a difficult one, you want bums on seats. She's opened up darts to completely different audiences."
