Fallon Sherrock marks her return to the World Darts Championship with a show-down against Steve Beaton in Round One at Alexandra Palace on Sunday.

The main event of the evening features an eagerly-anticipated clash between former World Champion Beaton and history-maker Sherrock.

Darting stalwart Beaton is making his 31st appearance in a World Championship, having made his debut at Lakeside back in 1992 before going on to win the title four years later.

The Bronzed Adonis is an ever-present at Ally Pally and enjoyed his best run two years ago when he made the Fourth Round, but will be out to atone for last year’s nightmare First Round exit on opening night.

The 57-year-old is tasked with tearing up the script as he takes on ‘The Queen of The Palace’ – who returns to the scene of her ground-breaking success of two years ago.

Sherrock, who defeated Ted Evetts and Mensur Suljovic on her debut to reach the Last 32, has enjoyed a meteoric rise to fame and has followed it up by reaching the final of the Nordic Masters and the Quarter-Finals of the Grand Slam this year.

The six-time Women’s Series event winner has proven she has what it takes to thrive on the sport’s biggest stages and will look to create more global headlines by defeating a legend of the sport to keep alive her hopes of gaining an automatic Tour Card.

Currently ranked 94 in the PDC Order of Merit, Sherrock must win at least three matches if she is to avoid having to go to Qualifying School next month.

The match gets under way from around 9.15pm GMT and will be contested over the best of five sets, best of five legs per set.

Number 32 seed Kim Huybrechts awaits the winner in the Second Round on Wednesday evening.
