Sweden’s Vicky Pruim set for BDO World Championship return replacing Fallon Sherrock
Sweden’s Vicky Pruim will make her BDO World Championship return after the disappointing news that Fallon Sherrock was to withdraw.
Sherrock’s withdrawal came as a result of the slashed ladies’ prize fund, with Pruim now preparing for her second appearance in three years.
Having debuted at the prestigious tournament in 2002 and reaching the semi-finals, Pruim returned to the Lakeside two years ago, losing out to Trina Gulliver as she did a mere 16 years prior.
The Belgium-born Swede will take on Australia’s Corrine Hammond, who was originally set to take on former world finalist Sherrock for a third consecutive year, in the first round.
Pruim and Hammond will contest their BDO Women’s World Championship opener on Saturday afternoon at the Indigo at the O2 in London.
