LISA Ashton has vowed to bounce back from her BoyleSports Grand Slam of Darts disappointment after losing all three games in the group stage in Wolverhampton.

Bolton’s four-time Women's World Champion has been rubbing shoulders with the sport's leading men in the Grand Slam this week.

After losing out to 2018 world champion Rob Cross and Jamie Hughes in her opening two games, Ashton ended the group stage with a 5-1 loss to Dave Chisnall on Monday night.

However, she will now look to challenge for a fifth Women's World Championship title in January - and could even make a return to the PDC's William Hill World Darts Championship next month if she wins through the forthcoming qualifier.

"It's been a brilliant few days," said Ashton, dubbed the Lancashire Rose.

"It's another step forward for ladies' darts to have me and Mikuru Suzuki in this event, and playing against the men has been a good experience for me.

"I want to take this experience and keep it going.

“It's all new to me but I enjoyed it and hopefully I can get another go in the future."

The 49-year-old was one of eight BDO representatives at the event with women represented in the cross-code tournament for the first time since 2010.

Ashton’s PDC World Championship qualifier takes place in Wigan on November 25.

The Grand Slam of Darts finishes on Sunday.
