Fallon Sherrock has secured a place in the 2020 Ladbrokes UK Open after winning the Rileys Amateur Qualifier in Wolverhampton on Saturday.

Sherrock made history as the first woman to win a game at the PDC World Championship in December, defeating Ted Evetts and Mensur Suljovic at Alexandra Palace in a headline-grabbing run.

She will now get to compete in the Ladbrokes UK Open at the Butlin's Minehead Resort from March 6-8 as one of the 16 Rileys Amateur Qualifiers.

Sherrock won through a field of over 200 players at Rileys Wolverhampton, eventually defeating Stuart White 5-1 in the final.

Saturday also saw Jamie Clark win the Rileys Aberdeen knockout to claim a spot in Minehead next month, with other events being held in Chester and Norwich.

The remaining 11 Rileys Amateur Qualifiers will be played over the next three weekends, with entries still available.

Entry is open to amateur players aged 16 or above on January 1 2020. PDPA Associate Members who did not win a PDC Tour Card at the 2020 Qualifying Schools are entitled to enter the Rileys Amateur Qualifiers.

Entries close 48 hours before each event. Players are permitted to enter more than one Rileys Amateur Qualifier event.


Matches will be the best of seven legs up to and including the semi-finals, with the final being the best of nine legs. Play will commence at 1230 GMT for each qualifier, with registration from 0900-1130 GMT.

Qualifiers will receive a Rileys shirt to wear during the Ladbrokes UK Open, which begins on Friday March 6.
