Wigtownshire Junior Badminton Championships 2013

Wigtownshire Under 15s

OVER three days, Monday 11th, Wednesday 13th and Thursday 14th March 115 children took part in the Wigtownshire Junior Badminton Competitions at the Merrick Leisure Centre, Newton Stewart.

Sixty six children from Penninghame, Creetown, Wigtown, Port William, Garlieston, Minnigaff, St Ninians, Drummore, Sandhead, and Portpatrick Primary Schools started the week of competition on the Monday night.

The boys’ singles had some close games, but Harry McCreath (Gar) repeated his victory in the Machars championships in December by once again beating Ruairi Beattie (StN) in the final. Harry then took the boys doubles with Lochlan McCarthy (Penn) and the mixed with Rachel Ramsay (Gar). The girls’ doubles title went to Emma McTeir and Erin Monteith (Cree). The girl’s singles competition ran on to the following Monday (18th) owing to the competition clashing with the music festival and seven of the eight quarter-finalists having to leave to perform there. Eventually Wigtown’s Charlie Stewart won the girls’ singles title beating Erin Monteith (Cree).

Apologies to any child who missed out on entering this competition. All Wigtownshire Primary Schools were sent a poster and an entry form around the beginning of February, but they may have been mistaken as a duplicate for the Rhins Competition held at the end of February. Hopefully, we will avoid a clash next year.

The Under 15’s saw a better entry than last year with thirty boys and girls in the competition. Some good games saw Fraser Dawson edging out Russell Morton for the boys singles title and Kezia Dale beating her doubles partner Maria Cowan in the girls’ singles. The two girls then went on to win the doubles together. Russell and his partner Jack Taylor came up against Alistair Birse and Lewis Wallace in the boys doubles final but were not quite strong enough to overpower the two older boys. In the mixed doubles Russell and Kezia paired up and beat their respective partners, Jack and Maria in the final.

The Under 18’s were a bit short on numbers with the competition unfortunately clashing with a Higher prelim at Stranraer Academy and other activities for some Douglas Ewart pupils. The Douglas Ewart’s Leah Forsyth beat Sabina Sobczak in the final of the girls’ singles and Liam Kelly won over Michael Brown in the boys’ singles. Liam and his partner Daniel Purves beat Alistair Birse and Lewis Wallace in the doubles. However, three Stranraer Academy players managed to win two titles. Wayne Doyle and Sarah Sloan took the mixed doubles title and Sarah and her partner Sarah Haigh won the girls doubles.

Some of the younger players who had also elected to play in the older section on the Thursday night acquitted themselves well, giving some of the older boys something to think about. Four of the Douglas Ewart High School children Russell Morton, Jack Taylor, Kezia Dale and Maria Cowan recently represented Dumfries and Galloway in the Scottish Schools under 14 Doubles in Perth on the 9th March.

Cilla Strain, on behalf of the Wigtownshire Badminton Association, expressed her thanks to the Staff and helpers who have worked with and coached the Primary school children. She also thanked Mrs Susan Bell for doing the table and helping her with the draw and everyone who came along on the above dates to help with the children, with a special thank you to staff and senior pupils who umpired for the Primary Schools.
