At the knock-out stage of the women darts championship, Sherrock gained the average score of 99,1.

Whenever it comes to plays and competitions, the great competing pressure made the condition become worse. Throughout this period, she had to receive many criticism from social community due to her flaw appearance. “But now, I do not want to take the history into account. Focusing on the presence and these incoming goals are what I’m doing.”, she said.
