DUNBAR Grammar School pupil Euan Campbell has been crowned a double Scottish badminton champion.

Campbell tasted glory in the U17 boys’ singles and boys’ doubles at the U13/U17 National Junior Badminton Championships, held at Ravenscraig Regional Sports Facility, near Motherwell.

In the U17 boys’ singles, Campbell lived up to his top-seeded position by not dropping a set all weekend and winning the singles in the final with a dominant performance against Callum Stokes, from Duns, beating him 21-16, 21-14.

In his second final, he teamed up with Nathan MacPherson, from Stonehaven, to topple the boys’ doubles number one seeds Lewis Hart and Isaac Weir to win his second title in a tough three-set match 15-21, 21-12, 21-12.

North Berwick High school pupil Finlay Jack, who is still in the U15 age group, also had a good run to the quarter-finals of the U17 boys’ singles, where he lost out to second seed Lewis Hart from Motherwell.

Jack then teamed up with another U15 player, Harry Bent, also from North Berwick, and had a tremendous run in the U17 boys’ doubles, reaching the semi-final stage, where they lost out to eventual winners Campbell and MacPherson.

In the U17 girls’ singles, Knox Academy pupil Amanda Martin reached the quarter-finals, where she was edged out by the top seed and eventual national champion Lindsey Ireland, from Aberdeen.

North Berwick High School pupil Jess Rae won her first U17 singles match but was defeated in a very close three-setter to Ashley Donald from Forres.

In the U17 girls’ doubles, North Berwick duo Jess Rae and Lois Turnbull were unfortunate to meet the top seeds in the first round but both players fought hard before losing out 21-16, 21-17 to Lindsay Ireland and Jodie Black, from Eyemouth.

Amanda Martin and Vibha Raman, Edinburgh, partnered each other for the first time, reaching the semi-finals of the U17 girls’ doubles, where they also eventually lost out to national champions Ireland and Black.

In the U15 boys’ singles, it was an all-East Lothian first round with Jacob Glass from Tranent and Callum Jack from North Berwick locking horns, with Jack winning to go through to play top seed Blair Tait, from Edinburgh; Jack, after a good effort, lost to Tait, who went on to become national champion.
