Darts history-maker Lisa Ashton has said she didn't ever think playing the PDC Tour was possible
Darts history-maker Lisa Ashton has said that she didn't think she'd make it onto the PDC Tour.
Ashton went through a qualifying school to secure her spot for two years.
She said: "I don't think it's sunk in, it's just been out of this world. Ten years ago I didn't think it would be possible. I didn't think the ladies would be invited into the PDC.
"It's just fantastic. I know it's going to be hard. It's another chapter. I've got to up my levels and hopefully get a few games won, see how far I can go against the top players in the world," she told Sky Sports.
Fallon Sherrock was also at the Q-school but failed to book her spot alongside Ashton.
While Sherrock didn't qualify, Ashton is full of praise: "What Fallon has done is absolutely fantastic. She took it in her stride and we all supported her.
"Now I've come through the Q-school, and on that side she supported [me]. We'll just stick together and hopefully more ladies will follow."
