Anglo-Scottish Under 16/17

The first of this season’s Yehlex Anglo-Scottish League team tournaments took place last weekend, 17/18th September at Tyneside Badminton Centre.  Most unfortunately, there were two late withdrawals of teams, leaving only Cheshire, Lothian and Lanarkshire to battle with home county Northumberland for the trophy.  Each team played the others twice over the two days and it was Cheshire who emerged triumphant and undefeated to take the cup for the first time.

Under 12s in Glasgow for Anglo Scottish

A large contingent of players and parents travelled up to Glasgow recently for the Under 12 Anglo Scottish team tournament (previously the Largs weekend).  This was a very young and inexperienced team and it was no great surprise that they found the competition pretty tough.  The team, which can be seen in the pictures below with their manager Karen Davison, was Amy Ward, Lucy Dodd, Ellen Davison and Amy & Hannah Zheng, Tim Bodani, James Dodd, Ollie Bruce, Matthew Short and Jack Tilbury.  Unfortunately, Charlotte Graham had had to withdraw, having recently broken a wrist and we were indebted to the Zheng sisters for standing in at short notice.
