Tees Valley BE Under 15 Bronze

It was great to see a strong Northumberland contingent (6 boys and 3 girls) down at the Tees Valley U15 Bronze tournament this Saturday.  Several were just starting their BE tournament experience, and there were some good wins and several 2nd places in the groups.  Two Northumberland boys (Gyan Chadda and Ashraf Alam) won their groups leading to an all Northumberland semi-final, after a strong quarter-final performance from Ashraf.  Ashraf came from behind to defeat Gyan, and then went on to win a “David v Goliath” final by 22-20 against Daniel DeSouza of Yorkshire.  Gyan completed a great day by winning a 2nd bronze medal in the mixed doubles!  Congratulations to Ashraf, Gyan and the whole group, who gave great support and encouragement to each other throughout the day.  And thanks to Rob, who came down in the morning, and whose “on the spot” coaching was hugely valuable.
