QUEEN OF THE PALACE TAKES ON THE KING

Fallon Sherrock will take on 16-time world champion Phil Taylor in the latest heavyweight darts clash organised by Paddy Power and Target.

The Darts From Home series has already seen Taylor take on world champions in Raymond van Barneveld and Miruku Suzuki - with the third pitching him against a potential future champion.

Sherrock shot to overnight sporting superstardom in 2019 when she became the first female to win a match - and, subsequently, two matches at the PDC World Championships; Ted Evetts in Round 1 and the 11th seed Mensur Suljovic in Round 2.

The match will raise money for NHS charity Heroes, with Paddy Power donating £1,000 for every 180 hit and £200 for every first dart finish. The previous two Darts From Home matches raised more than £25,000 for charity.

Given current social distancing rules, the match will be filmed on mounted iPhones sent to, and set up by, both players and played on the Target Nexus.

Sherrock vs Taylor will be available to view on both Target and Paddy Power's social media channels - and broadcast on Sky Sports - from 19:00 BST / 20:00 CET on Thursday 14th May.
