Our highly-ranked under 15, Ashraf Alam, has just performed strongly at the Lancashire Under 17 Silver tournament. Winning all three group matches in two ends, he beat Gloucesteshire’s Henry Jones in the quarters 11/15, 15/9, 15/5 before losing in three ends to the eventual winner, Jack Buckley (Staffs). An excellent result – well done, Ash!
Earlier in the season, our fast-improving under 15 Emily Harrison notched up three good Under 15 tournament wins in the Tees Valley Silver, Cumbria Bronze and Yorkshire Bronze. These followed Lexie Howard’s gold medal success in the Tees Valley Under 15 Bronze. Emily and Lexie had also teamed up to win the girls doubles at the Yorkshire Under 15 Bronze.
