Wayne ‘Hawaii 501’ Mardle believes Fallon Sherrock should put aside his ambitions to play in next year’s Premier League.

Sherrock’s dreams of repeating his heroic deeds in the PDC World Championship were shattered by veteran Steve Beaton at Alexandra Palace in the first round of the tournament.

Her hopes of defeating 1996 champion Beaton – who was making a record 31 appearances – came to a standstill as the 57-year-old scored a handsome 3-2 win.

Sherrock, who has already reached the Nordic Masters final and Grand Slam quarter-finals this year, needed two wins at Ally Pally to secure a spot in the top 64 in the PDC Order of Merit, which would have earned her a Automatic Tour Card.

But the 27-year-old from Milton Keynes will now have to go through Q School if she is to play on the tour.

“I really think it should be forgotten and overshadowed because that performance wasn’t good enough to justify a place in the Premier League.”

However, Mardle believes this would jeopardize her chances of playing in the Women’s Series. As for the Premier League, the former World Cup semi-finalist says he should forget about taking part in the glorified exhibition event.

“It all went a little wrong with that losing to Steve because it means he has to go to Q School, which is brutal, absolutely brutal. And win one (event) only outright, rather than going all four days and racking up enough points is the most likely path for her, ”Mardle said Sky Sports.

“But with that there are also some downsides. I was a little lyrical during the Grand Slam saying ‘why not consider her for a Premier League seat?’ for the way he was playing.

“I really think it should be forgotten and overshadowed because that performance wasn’t good enough to justify a place in the Premier League.”

Mardle continued: “If he had beaten Steve and kept averaging 98 and kept losing to Kim Huybrechts, there is still an argument there, but right now there isn’t an argument.

“So there is a case of going to Q School or maybe not going to Q School. I don’t know what plans her management has because if she goes to Q School it means she can’t play any girls tour and she will actually play. the best men and Lisa Ashton, week after week.

“It didn’t work out well for Lisa Ashton at all. It was brutal for her, so there are decisions to make. It’s not about getting a Tour Card and seeing where it takes you because getting a Tour Card is really hard.”
