Trailblazers Fallon Sherrock and Lisa Ashton have secured a return to the William Hill World Darts Championship following their PDC Women's Series success.

Sherrock created history at Alexandra Palace two years ago, defeating Ted Evetts and Mensur Suljovic as she shot to global stardom with her achievements.

She has now qualified for the 2021/22 World Championship from the PDC Women's Series Order of Merit, sealing one of the two spots on offer in this year's event.

"It's going to be a great experience to go back there, especially now that crowds are allowed back in," said Sherrock.

"I'm happy that I get to go back with crowds, and I'm looking forward to it. I'm just over the moon at the moment."

Sherrock - the Nordic Darts Masters runner-up recently - won three of the six Women's Series events in Milton Keynes last month and continued that form in Barnsley during the second block of six events with two victories on Saturday.

The Milton Keynes star won Event Seven, averaging over 100 twice in the process, was the runner-up to Ashton in Event Eight and then reversed that result to win Event Nine.

She added: "It was very satisfying. I'm really happy with how I'm playing at the moment and I'm really happy with the wins today.

Lisa Ashton will also play in the event

"I enjoy playing in the Women's Series, it's a good set-up and great money to be won and it's great practice for me."

Ashton's defeat of Sherrock in the Event Eight final saw her win a fourth Women's Series event of the year, and her own run to the Event Nine decider secured her third Alexandra Palace appearance.

Ashton, 51, has continued to lead the way for female players in the sport this year, becoming the first woman to average 100 in a televised match at the UK Open and enjoying her second year as a PDC Tour Card Holder.

She has previously played at Alexandra Palace in the 2018/19 and 2020/21 tournaments, losing out to Jan Dekker and Adam Hunt respectively.
