It was a great day for two of our most promising younger players at the recent Tees Valley Senior Bronze. Under 19 Garrylee McMullen showed how much his game has come on this season by defeating the top seed, Thomas Li, in the quarters before going on to reach the final where he faced Philip Pahatouridis. Philip is still an under 17 but has established himself as one of the County’s top singles players this season. The two of them put on a great show in the final which Philip eventually won 17-21, 21-15, 21-18.
They then paired up in the men’ doubles and fought through to the semi finals where they went down 14-21, 13-21 to the eventual winners. A great effort by both lads, who are products of the Northumberland Performance Centre. Very well done!
