Robbie Patterson (Eyemouth) was part of a strong contingent from Scotland who made their way south to compete in one of England’s premier events, the Badminton England York Gold under 17’s event.

In the boys doubles Robbie, and his partner Calum Atterbury (Edinburgh), won a bronze medal. However, in the mixed doubles he partnered Ciara Torrance (Prestwick) and they took the gold medal winning the final 21-18, 21-13, against fellow Scots Lewington and Sidebottom.

This was Robbie’s last tournament of 2015 and he would like to thank Borders Athlete Support Programme, ClubSport Berwickshire and Ashaway for the support he has received this year.
