Tecnifibre British Junior Nationals Hail Four New Champions

Kimberley Hay (Northumbria) started the event as hot favourite for the Women's Under 17 title and the 16-year-old from Newcastle did not disappoint. Kimberley was in a class of her own dropping only 18 points on her march to the final. There she met Derbyshire's No2 seed Millie Tomlinson who had reached the final after fighting back from the dead against Katherine Quarterman (Oxfordshire) in the semis. Katherine had won the first two games easily and at 8-6 in the third looked to have it sewn up. However Millie had other ideas and somehow found the energy and class to fight back and clinch both the third and fourth games 10-8 before easing away to win the fifth 9-3.

However in the final Kimberley simply continued where she had left off and won convincingly 9-4, 9-5, 9-3 in 28 minutes to take the title which she adds to the Under 13 and 15 crowns she has already amassed during her junior career to date.

Fiona May Murphy of Wales took the first title of the day with a great performance to overcome No1 seed and pre-event favourite Millie Pughe (Yorkshire) 9-4, 6-9, 9-1, 9-3 in 42 minutes in the Women's Under 13’s. Fiona becomes the first Welsh winner of a British title since Natalie Pritchard triumphed in the Under 15’s in 2004.
