Brothers Jack and George Railton competed in the Lincolnshire County Championships at Lincoln University on Sunday.

Priory Ruskin Academy student Jack won the under-15s boys’ singles title in a brilliant match, well fought by both opponents, to cap a really good season.

Following a close first game 25-23 defeat, Jack came back from 10-4 to win 23-21 and level the match, and then won the decider 23-21.

Following in his older brother’s footsteps, Barrowby Primary School pupil George won with his partner in the under-11 doubles, playing very well in some closely constested games.

Both brothers thanked Grantham club coaches Rod Tyler and John Mayfield for their support, along with their county coaches Paul Mayfield, Alex Cruickshank and Matt Atmore.
