Tynemouth’s top juniors Lucy Beecroft and Jamie Todd both reached their seeded places in the finals of the British Junior Championships in Manchester, but both finished as runners-up.
Lucy, top seed in the Girls U17 event, cruised through her first three matches but came up against an inspired Georgina Kennedy in the final in which, it has to be said, Lucy played below her best. After losing the first two games Lucy had her chances to take the third but ultimately went down 11/6, 11/8, 14/12 in 27 minutes.
Jamie, second seed in the Boys U15, was similarly untroubled on his way to the final which top seed Robbie Keefe won 11/5, 11/6, 11/8 in 35 minutes.
