Fallon Sherrock prize money: How much did darts star earn at World Darts Championship?


Fallon Sherrock took the PDC World Darts Championship by storm at Alexandra Palace but how much did she earn in her record-breaking run?

Fallon Sherrock emerged as the new crowd favourite at the PDC World Darts Championship having rewritten the history books with her results at Alexandra Palace. The 25-year-old became the first woman to beat a man at the tournament with a first-round victory over Ted Evetts, which she followed up with a triumph against 11th seed Mensur Suljovic.

Sherrock has become massively popular at Ally Pally and was looking to book a spot in the last 16 against 22nd-seeded Chris Dobey.

But after going a set up and then 2-1 up, Sherrock lost 4-2 to miss out on the next round.

So far in her career she has accrued £75,258 in prize money, according to Darts Database.

Her first-round win over Evetts pocketed her £7,500. And a triumph over Suljovic saw her earn a further £15,000.

Beating Dobey would have seen Sherrock guarantee herself £35,000.

But as a result of her defeat, in which Dobey averaged 101 and hit 180s on 11 occasions, she leaves having raked in £25,000.

Sherrock told Sky Sports post-match: “I’ve enjoyed myself so much! I’ve been backed so well.

“Unfortunately, it wasn’t my result but I can’t take it away from him – he played so well. I’ve enjoyed it so much.

“Thank you so much, it’s been amazing. I hope I experience it again because it’s been unbelievable.

“Hopefully I’ll be back here next year. I’ve got the Ladies’ BDO World Championships next week so go there and let’s see where I go from there.”

Dobey said: “I knew what I had to do from the start. I said in interviews before, this girl can play. I knew I had to do my best.

“I wasn’t doing anything wrong in the game and I’m like 1-0 and 2-1 down and I’m thinking, ‘How am I getting beat here?!’

“But it’s astonishing, she fully deserves all the support.”

Dobey will go on to play Glen Durrant in the next stage.

He will pocket £50,000 if he wins that match.
