The Under 15 Tees Valley Silver tournament saw significant success for a number of players from our County squad and from the Newcastle Performance Centre. Both of the level doubles went to Northumberland/ Durham pairings of Jonathan Elsdon/ Murray Wright and Sarah Wilson/ Ella Hodgson. The boys were unbeaten but only after an 18/16 third end against Northumberland’s Ashraf Alam & Jay Rathi (Yorkshire). Sarah & Ella finished in a three-way tie but won on games countback, despite losing a close match to Northumberland’s young starlet, Asmita Chaudhari partnered by Hannah Boden (Yorkshire).
In the singles, both Jonathan and Asmita won their groups to progress to the semi-finals: but neither managed to get any further. Other players who had travelled to Thornaby were Ellie Roberts, Gyan Chadda and Ben Leslie. All of our players scored several good wins. Very well done to them all.
