Matthew Boyce, 14, and Jacob Hanson, 13, both became area champions in the 12-15 age group.

In the U12s event, Jack Taylor, 11, took gold.

Lara Haslam, eight, only lost out to a 10-year old national medallist for her silver medal, while Brandon Keeling, eight, was also only beaten by a much older and more experienced player.

Both are very exciting prospects for the club.

Dina, aged 13, had a tough pool and was out of the medals this time.

Meanwhile, Emma Reid took gold at the Senior Welsh Open in Cardiff.

She is now GB ranked fourth in the U70kg category behind Olympian Sally Conway, Commonwealth champion, Megan Fletcher and world junior silver medallist Ebony Drysdale-Daley.
