On Saturday 28th Ellie Roberts was runner-up in the Under 15 Girls Singles competition at the Deganwy Junior Open, part of the Badminton Wales Junior Open Series. On the way to the fiercely contested final matchshe won her group by some margin including beating the eventual winner. The semi-final proved to be a sterner test, before she faced Welsh squad member Cerys Brackenbury in the final. The first set went to Cerys 15-13 however Ellie battled back in the second to level with a 15-11 win. The final set was extremely tense with both girls playing some terrific shots during some lengthy rallies as they exchange lead time after time. As they approached the finishing line neither could pull two shots clear to clinch the title until finally Cerys managed to hit the winning smash to win 21-19. The match was played in tremendous spirit with Cerys paying Ellie the compliment of stating that it had been the toughest match she’d ever played.  Very well done to Ellie!
