A brother and sister, who both attend Barrowby School, performed extremely well in the Lincolnshire County Badminton Championships at the weekend.

Ten-year-old Harvey Dobson won the U12 Boys’ singles and finished as runner-up in the U12 Boys’ doubles.

His sister Maddie Dobson, 9, triumphed in the U12 Girls’ singles.

Maddie has only been playing for a year and competed in her first Badminton England tournament a few months ago.

Harvey also played in the U16 Boys’ doubles with his cousin George Railton, 13, from Priory Ruskin Academy, and they narrowly missed the final by two points – which considering both their ages was a fantastic result.

Harvey has been playing since he was six and has competed in many Badminton England tournaments, winning plenty of medals.
