First on in the Cadet Boys were Johnny and Keir
Keir comfortably beatt A Kent 11-7,11-7,11-9 but lost to Adam Barlow 5-11,9-11, 5-11. This was enough however to see him through to round 2 on count back as A Kent also bt A Barlow 3-0.
Johnny lost both his games to go out in the group stage mainly due to inconsistency
In round 2 Keir came up against No2 seed Matthew Leete who proved too strong winning 3/0.

in Cadets and Juniors)

Kay bt E Davidson
11-13,11-4,2-11,11-7,11-3(3-2)

A nail biting junior event thus far

In the final Renee faired similar to her predecessors going down 3-1 to the ever improving Kay by
12-10,10-12,11-9, 11-3
It was a good feeling seeing the girls fending off a very strong home contingent to fight out the final both for Dumfries and Scotland. We now have to go back to defend the title. Both boys also playing well/gaining experience against very useful/technically good opponents.
