Sherrock, who impressed at the Darts World Championships last December, tweeted her congratulations to the youngster.

She wrote: "Enjoyed the Scottish Open this weekend, just stopped short but Congrats to @beaugreaves180 👍👏👏... who played well"

Greaves made headlines in January when she became the youngest player to compete at the BDO World Championships.

The youngster made it to the semi-finals, before being beaten by eventual winner Mikuru Suzuki.
