Fallon Sherrock partner opens up on household punishment for losing in practice

Fallon Sherrock's partner Cameron Menzies will be unblocking toilets and lagging hot water pipes before backing her to go on another fairytale run at Alexandra Palace.

Menzies will clock off early from his shift as a plumber for Milton Keynes council to support the Queen of the Palace against 'Rapid' Ricky Evans on Tuesday.

Sherrock was ringside at Menzies' haywire 3-1 win over Diogo Portela at the PDC Darts World Championship on Saturday night.

Now he will return the compliment – and he believes she will make another statement for girl power after stunning Ted Evetts and Mensur Suljovic in 2019.

Menzies said: “Fallon has played better than me at Ally Pally, to be honest. She is a class player, she has done well for darts in general and she is banging in 90-plus and 100 averages in practice. Whenever she beats me, I have got to make the food – so I don’t like it when she beats me!

“But I will support her left, right and centre, I am her biggest fan. I know how she good she is and she has taken me places that I would not have ever experienced because of darts. She has a hard match against Ricky, who is very fast, and when he is on his game, he is a frightening player.

“But for some reason she is better on the stage than she is on the floor. I think she will do well and no matter what happens, she will still be buying the Chinese afterwards! I am proud of her, my family are proud of her, she has done a lot for darts in general.”

Sherrock's place at the tournament caused controversy after it was allocated retrospectively by the Professional Darts Corporation for her triumph at the inaugural Women's World Matchplay in July.

But the two other females in the 96-player field, Beau Greaves and Lisa Ashton, both went out in the first round despite playing well.
