Players from Cleveland dominated the Cramlington 2 Star Junior tournament which was sponsored by Aalco.
The Junior Boys Singles was won by Josh Harland of Ormesby who beat fellow Ormesby player Sam Hitchen in a very exciting final getting home 12-10 in the fifth end.
On his way to the final he put out Kaine MacDonald in the quarters and Joe Clark in the semis. Hitchen meanwhile, had accounted for Aaron Uppal of Ormesby and Dean Richardson of Northumberland.
Clark, who plays for Northfield, had a good day winning both the Cadet Boys and the Under 13 boys. He defeated Northumberland’s Arran Kent in the quarters of the cadets, young Joseph Saxton from Rotherham in the semis and then produced the shock of the day by beating Harland over four ends in the final.
Nine-year-old Saxton won the Under 11 Boys Group with Ormesby’s Joshua Weatherby runner-up whilst the Junior Boys Plate was won by another Ormesby player, Calum White.
Northfield’s Hannah Clark, like her brother, also had a splendid day, taking both the junior and cadet Girls titles. In the juniors she defeated top seed Eleanor Davidson in the semis and then went on to beat Katie Barlow in the final, which was a repeat of the Cadet Girls final.
The Under 13 Girls saw victory for Sophie Barlow over Holly Williams in an all Northfield final while Ormesby’s Charlotte Weatherby won the Under 11 Girls Group with Lily May Williams coming second.
Holly Williams did have the consolation of winning the Junior Girls Plate, defeating Amy Webster in the final.
