Bronze Medals for our “Futures” in the Tyneside Under 13
With thanks to David Graham, who has put together this report on our last BE Junior Tournament weekend of the season, please read on ………..
It was a successful “Bronze” day for several of our Under 13s, a number of whom were taking part in their first BE junior events.
In the girls’ singles, Naomi Silver did well to progress into the semis, following three good wins in the group stages, including a 21-17 victory over the second seed and earning Naomi a bronze medal. In the boys event, Ryan Cockett came second in his group, again with three good wins, and competed well in the semis, going down 21-16 against the second seed and eventual winner Suvir Muniyal from Yorkshire. The “Consolation” knock-out stage yielded a bronze medal for Ollie Heron, still only an under 11 and showing great promise. In the mixed doubles, Naomi and Ryan teamed up to earn another bronze medal, finishing runners up in their group, again following three good wins.
Ryan then partnered Ollie in the boys’ doubles, earning yet another bronze medal. Playing off in a group of six pairs, they had three very good wins, losing out 21-19 against the No.1 seeds from Yorkshire. It turned into a full set of bronze medals for our promising young juniors, as Naomi earned her third bronze in the girls’ doubles, partnering Avisha Nayak from Yorkshire, including a very impressive 21-17 victory over the No.1 seeds from Yorkshire.
Overall, it had been a promising day for our younger juniors, confirming that the future looks bright and giving much encouragement for those currently in Northumberland’s Futures groups.
